Thanks demonkight, your are right, those motors are tuff. I was surprised how well she runs, specially after sitting since 2001 and not run very much since 1973. Shes a bit rattly on the top end, but NO SMOKE. After farting with the clutch for most the day (previous owners OVER tightened it. so much it was opposite to normal) no wonder they parked it. Got to drive her, Ok so it was 15 back and 15 feet forward...still counts!

I may have missed it somewhere along the way, but what straight 6 does that thing have? I find I-6's fascinating. Is it a pushrod engine?
