That looks great Greg. I've been wondering what you have been up to and now I know. That is a beauty!

Thanks Bill, I was about to give up on it :x I couldn't get it to run worth a hoot, had an old timer help me out. Here the magnets in the magneto would get warm and lose their magnetism thus losing the spark :cry: I myself would have NEVER figured that out :roll:. It would run for about 1 or 2 minutes then would start missing like crazy, and then shut down :!: We changed the head of the mag and he runs like a clock :{_}: :{_}: Stretch

Nice job Greg. Now you just need some snow to push around with that pretty blade.

:{_}: Looks AWESOME!! You do great work!

Nice that you have the hydraulic feature on your blade so you don't have to hop off the seat so much (like I do). :D

Very nice. What's the S/N? I have a '48 as well. Maybe I have one off the same line.
