Bubba,

I was never very quick when it came to distributors. Thanks for all your posts and videos.

I've worked my way up to being half-fast.

Jim

As many have already said, your health is all that’s really matters. Having 85% blockage and two stents installed in one artery, i know you’ll be fine. If you need someone to talk to about the procedure please feel free to send me a PM.

You’ll be missed and in my prayers!

Just be sure to keep moving. Not having to 'report for duty' is a great kick. Becoming sedentary is a curse.

Go have as much fun as you can!

Jim, I know where you're coming from, although I don't have the health problems you have, at 87, I don't plan very far ahead. My helper Rob is building his first flathead at home with my help, but he;s doing all the work. So maybe there will be someone around to rebuild soome more flatheads. I'm putting my roadster in tempoary storage, and working on the 47 International I'be had for the past 35 years. This will be put up for sale in the near future. It doesn't get run very nuch and the family doesn't really want it.
It need some BS work I have a new instrument cluster for iy, installed a vintage air heater defroster. but hadn't hooked it up. Last year I installed new shocks in the front suspension, so it rides prety good. Other than that all it needs is a coat of painr, and I don't spend any money on aesthetics. Eye sight and bad hip& back prevent me from working more than a few hours a day, so my playtime is limited. I wish you well Jim
take care.

Thank you Bubba for all you have given to the hobby.
Will be keeping you and your family in our prayers.
No doubt you have given many of us a great product, but i must say you should be most proud of your personal effort to teach all of us. The knowledge you have and will share will outlive your distributors. .
