I finally met a member! I stopped over to help member Titus (Pete) at his house today.

 

I only wish I had more time to help and hang out with him! We got the governor hooked up correctly on the V-46 ( I think that is what it was? there where so... many) But the bore for the throttle shaft was worn out real bad, so Pete will try to get a replacement carb.

 

I also want to say it was a pleasure meeting him! He is a great guy and has quite the collection of BH GT's!!!!!( and others). I also had the opportunity to meet his finance and his 3 awesome dogs!

 

I had never seen a BH in person before, and not only did I get to see one but... I got to see one of every model made except for the T series! Every garage, shed and section of yard we went had BH GT's LOL.

I felt like I had died and gone to BH heaven :D :dancingbanana:

Oh and Brian (TD&H) I saw the AC of yours sitting there all alone, The JB's jumped on my trailer and followed me home though. :dancingbanana: :rolling: ( I wish!!!)

 

I also couldn't believe that Pete only lives about 15 miles form me! So I am hoping I can get over there and give him a hand in the near future.

I didn't have enough time for pictures. It would take 2 days to photo all of those BH's lol.

Those JB's are huge rugged GT's when you see them in person!!! And yes Pete is a great guy!

I hope I can find the time to help him get his fleet up and running!

Northeast Fleet, Central Fleet (at my house), Texas Fleet! How many more you got hiding out?

 

Chris, it's always great to meet other members and visit. Glad you got to help out, too.

It is always nice to put a face to a name and a person you meet online.  Glad you had a great day!  But you were amiss in your duties for not taking your camera and no Pic's!  Same on you Chris!   :rolling:   :poke:

Cameras don't work on my property, photos always come out blurry anyway ;)

 

It was great meeting you as well, had some fun, got to tinker and you're more than welcome to come over whenever you'd like!
