Ray, how close are you to finally mounting the boiler onto the frame? It shouldn't be too much longer. Any new updates or are you planning on just surprising us in Feb?

Thanks guys.   Bobby I have been chipping away at the boiler ,  this last little bit seems to be taking forever.  Work has been busy .   I will change jobs , Dec 8th.    Going to the extra board, this should allow me some time to work on the engine.   I will  post  a few pics in the next cpl of days.   Ray III

   Ray,
 
   I think Greg would agree with me whan I say that i like the looks of that back head and the way you have it welded to the outside sheets and boiler top.

The progress reports should come a little faster now.   the extra board has  more down time than the pool turn or chaingang  assignment  I was on.   The next set of pics are of the backhead.  The backhead welding is complete except for a few passes on the firedoor.  That should take about an hour to complete.  There is only about  30 min of welding, the rest of the time  is for  repositioning the boiler for welding.  I had a close call a few weeks ago, hence the  welding jack now being used under the firebox .  This first pic is of the bottom of the backhead showing these passes complete.
