Machining of the right side reverse shaft bushing is complete.  Today the bushing was installed.  A number of different machining processes were required to turn the $240.00 piece of bronze into the required part.  Big thank you to AJR.

Several studs were turned out to replace short studs holding the front left valve cover.  Studs were installed.

A new cover was installed on the tent frame.  The frame was relocated so that protection is provided to both forklifts.

A goodly amount of water was found in the smoke box and front coupler pin holes.  Most of the water was evacuated from both locations.  New covers were fabricated for the stack and coupler pin access hole.

Trash was collected and trash bins emptied.
