    Seized my engine!

    Update on the engine: I've pulled the head and lower pans off. I removed pistons 6, 1,2,3. They came right out of the cylinder with no issues. Piston 4 came out the same but there was no bearing on it. Turns out the connecting rod bearing 4 welded itself to the crankshaft. The crank and last...

    Need Appraisal for Title, Grand Rapids, Michigan

    Hello everyone! Over the summer I bought an 1952 m211 (m215? It has a dump bed) on Craigslist for about $1000. The drive train is in good condition but all the brake lines were completely rotted so I've been replacing all lines and rebuilding the cylinders. Anyways, it didn't come with a title...
