Butch,

I think you just have a gift for finding these rarities. What I want to know is: "When are you opening up your museum?"   :laugh:

Way cool! I am constantly looking with no luck unless I want to spend as much on shipping as I do for the engine.

Hey M.r C., Mark will only be too happy to fetch you down his Blackstone springer to Coolspring! I have seen it run, it's gorgeous. Congrats on the RH. I have watched them burn a whole bowl full of gasoline before they could be changed over. Expect a questionable transition until it has pounded away on oil for a while, then they are exquisite.

Paul, I would love to own one of those but they command much more $$$ than I usually have laying about.  It would solve my place problems since I would have to sell the rest ofthe collection to buy it,, :D

That is a monster compared with the little Listers!  :o Are those 48" flywheels?

Hi Butch. 
I found my flywheel pinstripe tool if you want to borrow it.
