  • Mabel's Heart Transplant- She purrs Now

    Well Mabel is getting a heart transplant. The 185 engine arrived today from Georgia. Buddy Romines built it. Picked it up from the freight company this morning. This afternoon old engine is out waiting for parts switching. New clutch disc, etc. Gonna paint the engine compartment while the engines out. Repair wires etc. Here is a link to today's activities. Just thought I would share.

    I've met Mr. Romines before. A fine gentleman he is. He has a '54 Champion two door that he built the engine in, as I'm sure you know, that runs as sweet as a Champ can run. Congrats!!! And good luck getting it back together. [^]

            Gee, Annie, for a patient in need of a heart transplant, Mabel looks pretty darn good! Congrats on the new motor. By the by, your link doesn't work. All that shows is a little red box with an x in it.

                        Is that the correct color for that motor?

                            Anne,
                            I'm sure glad Ron spoke up. At first I thought is just me that saw the redX.

                            Keep the pictures coming as Mabel gets her new heart.

                            Regards,
