Great post Duane! I'm the new kid on the block fixing up my '55 Model 165. I've met or done business with a few of you and having lots of fun. Thanks to all for their willingness to share info to keep these little guys going. Just made a small donation to the site and it felt good! :) I hope 2015 will be your best year yet. Mike//
