This would clearly eliminate the problem of getting the trailer up over mountains - you could just pull the mountain to one side!

Cool Big Engines

I worked on a Diesel Engine that you could stand in and it was on an old world war 2 amunition ship. The cyclerders were two foot accross and it tool one gallon of fuel for each revolution of the crank.

Peter- I know you are a man with many friends, but I think its asking too much for them to lift that while you figure out how to cram it into a 454.
Even a few Lone Stars won't help!

I was guessing ... on the Forums about 3 years ago: http://www.airforums.com/forum...ower-7615.html

I was off by a month. Always good to see!

Any guesses on the abilities of the Search function ...

I like the booties the mechanics are wearing. Do you think I could get a pair for my mechanic?
