Mrs. 8N suggested that they can open a rental agency and rent it out.

Excellent idea!! They could include free safety gear with all rentals… flip flops, cowboy boots and shorts…  :handgestures-thumbupright:

Kev,

    The comment about the kids forgiving you has definitely struck a chord. I have been collecting and hoarding for over 50 years and now, I'm trying to downsize.  Piles of part get reassembled into a large lump.  This machine got broken down to bare cases  in Oct 2021 and now it is going back together.

Crapola... looks like ther is a rod in ther for a WI and that mag mighta worked on the Gibson.

Oh well ... word of advise Kev ... never pass on Wisconsin parts or Clintons at a flea market like I do ... :lol:

Thanks for scoring the tank and support for me... Senior parts fellas. 

Might have to have box that up and send it to me while the Senior is still in the shop and I have to move it out for plow day. Give ya a call.

Since this site deals with the Red  I don't feel  you guys want to see another brand  except in  passing

Agreed I did this one in 09. But you get the idea. Just the transmission. One part out of hundreds  on a crawler.

Jim, what kind of paint did you use for the inside of the case?  Anything special to live in an oil bath forever?

Some more pictures of my scores!  Impact 3/8” extensions for a buck a piece, full aerosol cans for 50 cents, feeler gages and spark plug gap per combos for $2 and a palm compression tester for $10.  Oh, and a $53 gas tank for Uncle Jim!  :lol:  they asked $3 for it, I told him a 50 finder’s fee :sad-bored:

Another cool find at the sale.  I didn’t buy these, but they were cool!  Ratcheting jacks.  I wonder the tonnage rating on them!  I’m guessing they were for machine moving/leveling over automotive use.

I should be used to it, but I'm not. I'm still amazed to see the variety and ingenuity of tooling invented because someone decided it was worth the effort.

To me, the interesting part of the jacks is the squared head surely intended to lock/stabilize it in a corresponding socket in another part of the lifting apparatus.

those heads… hinged back too!  They had a shorter pad underneath for alternative use.

Multi-use. Even more foresighted. Of course, someone understood that having lifted something with a jack, having that something slip off the jack would be NOT GOOD!
