The iodine he was talking about can be bought at the drug store. it is the purple stuff in the little bottles. works good for aluminum distributor housings stuck in cast iron intake manifolds too!

It had not run for a few years befor I got it. I do intend to continue with the project until it does run but we have a long way to go. Since I am retired and every day is Saturday, I hope to have it running this year.

I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows!
