Roger, Hurry up with those photos......... Too bad you didn't get a shot of your face coming over center for the first time. Hope that air cooled diesel quiets down for you, but get ear plugs just in case, or learn how to read lips and say "Huh?".

To dutch and all interested parties. Picked up the Hydro 6000 Diesel Magnatrac from the local freight depot yesterday. She's definetly a little powerhouse, but I hope that engine quiets down some once broken in. Sounds like two ballpeen hammers drumming on a steel workbench. It's a 2 cyl air cooled Lombardini rated at 28HP. If the sun comes out I'll take some photos when I get home. Driving it up ramps onto the trailer was interesting, but coming down was scary. As you move off the trailer the machine stays level untill the center of mass passes the edge, then the machine literally "falls" over onto the ramp. That's it for now,I'm just counting the minutes till I get to go back home and play.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
