    back in 2009 I stole this grader and after 2 years in court it became mine. I thought I had a posting on this BB but I guess I don't. last weekend I decided to get working on the grader because it was like a bad DIEvorce and I didn't have any interest in it. I whipped up a bar starter and broke the engine free.

    Glad you're doin good, I was about ready to give you a call a few months back to see if you were alive, but read some posts on other sites saying you were a-ok and just had problems with the site.

    So, once you get this ol' girl up and running, you gonna go to work grading out the so called road?? Haha!
