Goals for tomorrow:
1) Mount tires.
2) Paint the bottom of the trailer. (weather permitting)
Chris, sorry I forgot until now. I could not find the color the paint is. Here is a pic of the can.
The other day I put the compressor on the 3 point forklift for the '75. I drove it around and pressure washed it. I did not give it a real bath but its way better then it was.
Reason for editing: Forgot some stuff. Lol.

It went together pretty smoothly. I pulled it around and everything was fine on it. Being that the axle is so far back from the front of the tongue, it makes it VERY easy to back up.
Even if it looks good, it doesn't mean a thing if it doesn't run! I tried to start it but it had no spark! When I dug the compressor out it ran perfect with lots of very healthy blue spark. I changed the plug and it had one orange spark. I changed it with another plug and nothing. I don't know whats wrong with it. I thought it might be the regulator, when I started the project I thought it was bad then, but it still ran. I guess it could be bad now? What do you all think? I will did out the manual for it and try to locate the regulator, I can't seem to find it.

On the no spark issue, it's hard to tell form the picture but the wiring in the back of the engine looks different than from pictures when you 1st started this post.
Is it possible a wire is disconnected? Or just a bad connection?

Chris, how can you tell it looks different?! LOL! I moved them around trying to push all the connections together and they are probably just in different spots. I thought that when I pressure washed it, it disconnected a wire but they are all hooked up.

JK! I looked back at pictures in the beginning of the thread, magnified them and compared to the ones you took today.
Just tow it to my house, I'll get it running for you

Ok!!! Sounds like a plan! I'll be waiting!
I don't think I can tow it to you. I can take it apart, and send it to you in envelopes piece by piece?!
