It is all over now. I know how this plays out. You have the engine restored and running well (and you had so much fun doing it) now you have nothing to do with your spare time. Now you must have another and another and another. Been there and done that. Welcome to a great hobby and keep up the great work. I am sure we would all like to see you with more motors to occupy your time.

Great Job! You are where I was 8 months ago. Now I have 5 flywheel engines, 1 1/4 to 7 hp, 2 Maytag’s, a small hammer mill and of course a nice new 16' tandem axel flatbed trailer with breaks to haul everything around. I have enjoyed restoring all of my engines. Keep up the good work and enjoy a great hobby.

Looks good Dennis. Thats a really nice engine to start in the hobby. Getting them to start easy and run nice is the challenge. And it looks like you have that licked. The most important thing to remember in this hobby is to HAVE FUN!! Keep up the great work!
