Re: AA Engine Serial #

Trucks engines are suppose to start with AA. You appear to be lucky enough to possibly have the original engine.

Re: best shipping source for large items

I tried to buy some hardware from Fasternal. They wouldn't accept cash and would only sell to registered customers with an account. Screw them.
