I believe this was donated by John Foley, it was used by him in much early roadwork in the Henderson area, was on the roadside at his farm when I was a child. My older brother managed tostart the engine after many years not going, the motor started in reverse which apparently generally ends in motor failure. Dad (John's youngest bro a diesel machanic) managed to shut it down .
