Austin-Westin 1944 IH powered crane

Went on a recovery mission over the weekend. this unit was donated to the Zagray Farm Museum and we decided to get it quick as there were 'other interests' seeking to acquire it.
It's powered by a T9 tractor with the tracks mounted in reverse to provide counterweight. it got on the trailer under it's own power with an external gas tank. there are a couple of issues with the crane mechanisms, and the usual fluid change, carb and mag rebuild, and what appears to be a stuck governor.

That looks awesome Art! We were wondering where you have been in the chat room last night. Now I see what you have been doing.

Art, fantastic. Glad you guys got the crane. How about bringing it to Cubfest so we don't need to bother with unloading ramps. LOL
