If my wife wouldnt have lost her job this week. then i could justify the drive that would cost me $600 in fuel plus 2 nights in a hotel.



Cashflo ,
 why not come to india for a vacation and take one from here @ USD 175 each hee hee

Dont think they will let me bring it on the plane as a carry-on

Look at it as credits to be cashed in later.  'Yes dear, I'd love to go to the re-premier of "The Sound of Music" but it's so far to drive.  You did say it was in Florida didn't you?'   ;D

If you are carrying it, there is no one going to stop you, except the Terminator !

I just got home from Florida very early this morning.     It took 1822 miles,   3 days, 2 nights,  12 double cheese burgers, 4 egg mcmuffins,  about 20 Cokes,  10 bottles of water and around 140 gallons of diesel and I'm back home with this engine.      I can hardly wait to tie on a lobster bid,  grab a bag of tools and tear into this thing.    I must say that bitsandpieces1 is a great guy and we just can't thank him enough.      Thanks to my wife for being so understanding also.     I just hope I can do his engine justice with my limitted experience and knowledge!      I'll keep you posted.

Cowboy,
Good luck with the engine. I was just reading this forum when I saw the free engine post. I tried to register to get the contact info, but it took a number of days to get approved. Membership does have privileges. Someone was even traveling from FL to our farm with an empty trailer. The stars did not line up this time, but I am ready for the next time. 

I do have my eye on a parts kit project, so I should have sand, oil, and cheap paint under my finger nails soon.

Dear piperpilot3tk,

Just so you know - I was hot on the email the first day it was listed and I missed out as well.

I am still feeling empty inside...... :'(  I was laid up after disc replacement surgury when this came up....must be why I did not see it.  Still would love to have another Powerline Listeroid to keep my 6/1 company and run my central A/C while the 6/1 runs the rest of the house.

We could probably add some Anand (Powerline) product to our next order if that was of interest to you. Not certain we can get them to cooperate with all the hoops that must currently be jumped though.
