'What' did you get with your acquisition? If you have the bed's steel outer frame, it might be a good start. Photos would help. The steel stakes and hardware are harder to find. I kept the original bed pieces and side boards as patterns. Many helpful contacts are available.

Personal experience is that NO ethanol works best for the longer term. My small engines on up have con...
