My good friend Tom Covington came over tonight and got my 52 running. I had been able to start it but couldn't keep it running. His magic touch
( and knowledge and expertise) did the trick.

Man, what a good feeling! :D

I also raised it on the lift and put it in all the gears and watched the rear wheels turn! A sight for sore eyes!

What a beautiful engine, Leonard! You're inspiring me to get Frumpy going again!:D All I need are two driver's side doors, centre post, bumpers, front and rear wiring harness, body work, paint... complete rebuild on the engine... well... may-be not.
