I'm a firm believer that when you're dealing with 50 year old stuff, you've got to be ready to act. If it's soemthing that you can't find every day, you buy it when you find it, and work out the details later. Last New Year's eve, I found myself looking at a complete running 235 and 3 speed for 150. I had no way to get it out of my truck, and no place to put it. So, I did the smnart thing and bought it anyway. Didn't take too long to figure out the details once I was in a position where I HAD to figure them out.
