Yesterday was an 800 km road trip spread over 15 hours with three stops.  First was Barrie to drop off an engine and pick up two Wisconsin ABNs, some mags, gas tanks, sediment bowels, etc.  One of the engines is a confirmed Waterloo 40 engine built in 1950.  Same throttle lever setup as on my model 40.

I also picked up two sets of 4 -12 tires, one set is one what might be Planet Jr rims if anyone is interested.

Then it was off to Ancaster to pick up the Waterloo 30, plow, disk set, potato plow, and what might be an Empire tool bar.  More on the 30 in another thread.

Then it was off to Hamilton to pick up a Clinton and a Newton.  More on the Newton in its own thread.

Then it was back home for a good nights sleep, while visions of sugar-plums danced in my head.

That's a big road trip, and a good load of goodies. Enough projects there to keep

you busy for a while.

The 30 update is delayed by an email I got this morning, again while I was drinking my coffee.  If it all works out, there maybe more to the story & another (hopefully shorter) road trip.
