  8. So it appears he is not willing to part with it at this time. My father and I are still going to make the trip to take some pictures of it and make an offer because it is sitting there for years being used as a shelf. My questions to you guys are: What is a reasonable price to offer for said engine that is in fair condition? Also anyone have some ballpark prices of what it cost to tow an engine 150miles? Lastly the brakes are shot according to the owner. Anyone know where I could finds or a diagram? Thank you so much in advance, your guys are amazing

  11. Thank you! You're my new hero sir. I did send an email to the town asking if anyone could help me out. Also sent a Facebook message to local fire company as you suggested.
