Too bad I don't have a valve to put in it.

Go to a local auto shop, they should have some laying around.

Souix made some very nice tools.

After you turn the valves down, you will need one of these for the engine:

NICE!
I have one of their old hand crank grinders. They have one of the coolest looking tradmarks in my opinion.

These are great old bench mounted tools.  To complete this one you need the crank handle, pressure spring & possibly the cutter in the tool post (couldn't see the photo clearly enough).  I have a co**ection of these that needs thinning.

Thanks bc_z, I'll have to dig to the bottom of the tool box to see if the crank handle is still there.

ray,
this is what I was referencing, along with a unknown, baby brother?  Anyone have/seen/identify the little guy?
