Not a terrible price by today's standards, but quite a bit more than back in the 80's when I could pull an engine in the morning, rebuild it and drive tha car the same afternoon.

It only hangs over the end of the trailer 13 feet ...

Oh, so it is a portable mill ;) :D

Nice find and will be fun to watch.

I have no compression on 3 cylinders and 90 ish on 1. I popped the valve covers off expecting stuck valves but instead I am thinking maybe lifters??? I can open the valves with a small prybar and the close back. The rocker arms are not rocketing. Maybe the rockers are froze up. Either way it won't run today and needs parts to fix it. Maybe a complete overhaul is in order.

My guess is that you can tear it down, clean it up and put it back together and it will run great. Same amount of work as a rebuild but costs way less.  Good luck!

So it's a circle mill?  I don't see the blade? did you get one with it?  What diameter?
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!

Brad, it is a circle mill.  30" blade with two 12" edger blades. The head unit travels above the log on a track. It can make two boards per pass.

You've got yourself the grand daddy of portable mills there. Pick yourself up some Rooto professional drain opener which is pure phosphoric acid to remove the rust prior to painting.
I paid about $13 for a quart but it can be diluted quite a bit. Otherwise look for Rust Mort in a autobody supply.
