Outstanding work!!! Just like a brand new one! It's going to be like a museum piece when you're done. :)

 

It's neat to hold onto patina, but there's just something about bringing a machine like that back to life again and seeing/appreciating what it would've looked like when it was new that can't be replicated. :thumbs:

Very nice, Brian !!!

 

Do you know what size rollers you need?  ....I have an assortment of wood rollers left from old stock, so maybe, I have what you need???

 

I.D. X O.D. x Length x how many ?

Wanted to fire it up but as soon as I put gas in it the new B&S fuel valve I installed was defective and dripping on my new paint!!!!
