Santa came early......
« on: September 24, 2012, 10:34:52 PM »
Well, what showed up the other day was 4 boxes full of ...



Three sets of casting for a Fairbanks-Morse Type N 25 hp.  :whoohoo:  One is Dad's, one is mine, and the third is for a friend who restores/collects the full sized engines.  The castings are from Tom Stuart and are very nice, as are the drawings.  :ThumbsUp:  Not sure when I'll get started on mine (still have to remodel the bath  :ShakeHead:) but I'll try to keep y'all up to date.  :D

Cheers

Jeff

Looks like your holidays are booked then. I look forward to seeing the build thread.
