In Minnesota, there is a different kind of Gopher motor. That's what I was thinking this would be.
Thanks for the great story. You’re right about the people you meet that you otherwise wouldn’t. I have met A ton because of hot rodding.Memories like this last A lifetime. Snowman
Very cool!!!! So, what is the purpose of the counter balanced crank?
Great question. The counterbalanced crank reduces how much the engine moves in the mounts, resulting in less wasted energy and smoother running. At least that's how I understood it.
Awesome story Joey, thanks for sharing.....
Thank you everyone for the replies. There are a few more developments to this story, some of which I will be sharing at a later date. For those of you who are interested, here is the full episode on YouTube of our search for the Gopher Motor.
HO LEE SHIT!! "E" has one of those collections that I could spend days looking at. You found a diamond mine, and a gem of a guy!
Awesome video! This gentleman exemplifies the difference between a hoarder and a collector. He knows what he has and where it is, he has great stuff, well cared for, and accessible. He is a true collector.
