I know the paint is rough on the one side, but Im glad you have kept it as is they never quite look right again when restored.

I have a 365/2 with the same paint, and Scott was guessing it to be one of the last variants because of the green, making it late 30s, but I do not know for sure Looking at my old post, I have had it 3 years and never fired it  :o  your video sure makes me want to change that!  :D

This is the safety valve weight that would have been on your engine

Nice one Jim 👍

A very nice one. The Bakers Fan puts just right load on.
