Thanks for the input. I got lucky and found the fuel tank. Perfect shape,.I'm still going to tear it down and clean it up. It's missing an exhaust tube and one of the copper fuel supply tubes is smashed almost flat.also one of the fiber gears in the mag. has missing teeth.

Got the 3-r-30 all cleaned up and I attempted to roll it over and it did! So I hooked up a slow ramp-up drill to the already modified start shaft, sprayed penetrating oil in every hole, made sure it did have oil and rotated it for a couple of mins.No knocks, crunching, grinding, all good! Drained oil, pressure washed and wiped it down. I think she will run. Serial # r 30 297.
