    Fixing a grill with Plastex

    What happened to licorice goodies??

    No safety glasses, hearing protection and open toed sandals, but they're getting the job done. There's a casting number at about the 20 second mark (31312730) that seems to be a Chinese casting for Case/Perkins/Massey Ferguson three cylinder engines. The machine shop appears to be in Pakistan.
