Howdy from Kansas!

It has been a long hot summer, but it's about over.

As a troop, we aren't overly active once school lets out, but since I'm a teacher, I have a few days to work on projects. To keep the schedule moving, I'd bring "homework" home. My goal was to get the front end rebuilt and we crossed that off today.

After getting the individual parts ready, we "put it all together." My son learned new skills today: how to use an impact wrench and how to install cotter pins.

The first picture series is a "before" picture. the work we did today and the "after" picture. The second series is a battery cutout switch I mounted to an old starter switch base-plate. The last pictures are miscellaneous parts that were reworked over the summer.

Thanks again for all the help and advice. We're a long way from done, but we're moving in the right direction.

Best

Mark

Mark,

Thank you so much for working with the Scouts. It is great to see the progress you, your son, and the troop have been making. The other help will be back soon, now that school is starting.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Hey Mark. I have been wondering what has been happening with the T. It is looking good.
