Hello Rob,

thank you for your interest. I will post some more picture, no problem. When im back home i will make some more pictures.

I like your project,the J-3's are very good engines.
Another proof for succesful engines, the combination of baker steering G.S.C Frames and the timken runing gear
seems to be a guarantor for that succes.

Would love to see some of your work!

Kind Regards
Chris
