Frame, in perfect shape. just needs cleanup and finish. This motor is seized, so it will go into the scrap pile, too costly to fix as we already have 2 motors on the stands in running order. The ones in the scap pile won't be thrown out as they might be needed in the future when no more running motors can be found.

Wow, Travis.....looks like an awesome place to visit. Great pics.

Also, when do start the BC "pool" for guessing the date your SSEi will hit 300k?
