I think Iâ€™d classify it as a success.
The lower gearing made it easier and the new, improved clutch is spot on. Even in a lumpy grassy yard with a slight ups and downs, we were able to keep it moving. It performed admirably and reliably. With numerous test runs, it still started easily and never skipped a cog. Running at a whopping 2.5 MPH (estimated) I think it did very well for a vehicle fueled by pizza and beer.
It canâ€™t exactly turn on a dime, but the smokestack puffed just like it was supposed to. And at night the lights look mighty fine.
So without further delay, hereâ€™s the pics form test day:

And nothing looks finer after a night on the town than your old barn in the headlamps' glow:
