It is sad when they are neglected. It's a lot of work and expense to bring them back up to par. I had the same deal with my 314. It was a lot of fun and a great learning experience though. Good luck on your search for a 430.

Well hello from SC I found my 318 while looking for a motor for my 317. I got lucky and got it going all for about $500.00. Now to paint it this winter.

Hello JJ we are practically neighbors separated by about 35 miles good luck on the winter paint job.
I wish I could of gotten away with just 500.00 worth of repairs, the radiator alone was close to $300.00 for a new core, but it is all over now but the crying and routine maintenance to keep it in top shape and like Brian said it allowed me to become quite intimate with this fine piece of machinery. The 80 cart was my latest restore project. and now I am in search for a powerflow
