well I hauled the panzer home today. Once home i pulled apart the carb to find that the bowl gasket was bad and some ports were cloged. Once I got everything clean I put it back together with the bad bowl gasket. it fired right up but hunts a lot, so off to work tomorrow so I will pick up some parts. Well anyway, it was runing so I drove it around the yard some and its is kind of scary to drive. Then around 8 my budy came over and he wanted to drive it. So I said yes, not thinking he would do stupid stuff with it. But he did, he soon found out it went way faster in reverse than foward so he was flying around the yard in reverse. But all in all it was a fun day.

Glad to hear you got the Panzer running. It is nice when it is something simple to get them going again. :D

Very nice. Will you restore it or leave it the way that it is? Looks very complete!
