Radiator guy called and has the radiator done, will be picking it up next week.
I bought the wires from Brillman but they were about 5 inches to long. My neighbor had the correct end and the crimping tool so I custom fit them.
New gauge face from the club store for the oil pressure gauge. It was pretty nasty inside the gauge housing
Not sure when I'll see the equalizer spring
There was about an inch of crude in the bottom of the main engine air cleaner. The screens were pretty lean but the pine needles are really hard to get out            .

Scott, did you have to tweak the needle up a bit to slip the new gauge face on? And which outfit did you get your plug wires from, and did you shorten them any?__PRESENT

Cheers,
Neil

Looks beauty Scott! I like details like the gauges, proper plug wires and all the little things. I'm sure you will get great satisfaction when you get to run it properly and it's in top shape. Keep it up!

To remove the gauge face i just turned it sideways and then the needle just slides through the opening. I got the wires from the Brillman company. They're nice wires but they're about 5 inches to long. I cut them and installed new ends.

Thanks Nathan, starting to have visions of smoke coming up the stack. Radiator next week and then I'll be able to start messing around with the pony motor.
Saw a car from BC the other day so maybe we're getting closer to a border opening.

Hi Scott, is that magneto switch on the pony new? I am looking for an OEM one just like it. Do you have any leads?

Thanks for the offer Scott but you should keep it for someone who actually "needs " the original. I have one of the later styles and it works fine. Take care buddy.

I see you have a Earth Stove in your shop. Does it do a good job of heating your shop? We have one in our house. Good looking job. catskinner

Its actually a Blazeking,  and it works good. I keeps it between 65 and 70 degrees all winter. I can get between 14 and 17 hours out of one load in the firebox so it burns all night. Usually light it in the fall and it never goes out all winter. Makes it nice for working on projects cause not much you can do outside in the winter around here

Radiator and main engine air cleaner installed. I had the guy paint the radiator black , I think the contrast looks good. There's a lot of yellow on these things!
