After Nearly 35 Years

It moves under it's own power. This old Merc is now mobile! Needed a little trans fluid added before it would move but once I figured that out we had liftoff. Interesting driving with no brakes and a plugged idle circuit that won't let the old flathead idle slow without stalling. So it is a delicate balance of foot on throttle, hand on shifter and other hand on steering wheel. Plus a hefty block of wood as a stopping point so I didn't roll through the back wall of the workshop I was backing nto.  So far nothing run over or dented. Waiting for the ground to dry up enough to drive around the yard a bit. First the snow has to melt. And its still coming down. Early spring? Maybe not.
