    I got this from the estate of a friend who passed. After cleaning it out of 10 or so bags of fiberglass insulation, trash, and racoon $hit, I aired up the tires and moved it out of his back yard.
    Today I'll haul it over to the shop and try to figure out the engine - it doesn't seem to turn over (Anyone have a good running 170 for sale?).

    It's pretty ugly, but I'm a bit fond of the patina - it's sort of a "rat rod" without the "rod.
    Planning on getting it running and using it for a DD/motorized wheelbarrow that'll also be kind of cool/unusual.

    That looks like a challenging project! How's it now?

    I pulled the engine last weekend. It's already .040 over, so I'm looking for an engine.

    Good luck finding a good engine!
