Its a wonderful thing not seeing the oil man pull in the driveway anymore, I hope you'll see all the savings soon! Good job on the install.

Thanks! And yes, that poor bike gets used and abused. I don't know what it's rated to pull, but I'm sure the things I keep needing to move are double whatever that number is!

I filled the fire box by hand then the hopper gravity feeds into the box. I fill it once a day and it has only been cold enough to just barely empty the hopper, so I just to it off every morning and it levels back out at the top of the box when I shake it.

Thanks! That's my baby. Completely restored her about 10 years ago and been thrashing her ever since. Went to southern California to play in the sand dunes last January. It was amazing!!
