Well, one year to the day I bought the engine, I bought a trailer to act as the baseis for my running stand. It's old, it's steel, it's aquatic, and the price was right. It is now in a garage 2 states over, but I can get it home once I see if the lights work and borrow a vehicle with a hitch. Or I dissassemble it as far as I can and throw it in a van or pickup. Pictures later. I continue to clean and paint the Franklin pushrod tubes and induction pipes still on the engine. Engine mount is painted and ready to go to work. So now comes care measuring and drawing up some plans (Payback! My son owes me for 5 years of collegiate enginneering education) for the fabricators and welders. Back in business!
