Beautiful and nice that you brought it back from an early grave. It’s been quite a journey.
Congratulations and stay safe.

Time for Valley pan gasket. I bought all the parts about a year ago, but never had chance to start.
Since I won't be going anywhere, finally started long overdue project.

Well done project, White! You have preserved a beautiful machine! I hope my 4.4 will look as good as your 4.6 some day. Looks like it takes patience and time, and right now I have a lot of that!

Thanks for all of your updates!
