The ST300 is an awesome performer. If you work her really hard she might burn 5 gallons an hour. She isn't pretty but neither am I. I need to split her and line bore the articulation. Since that is what I do for a living, no biggy.
I acquired her when she was on her way to the bone yard with an engine knock. Easy fix we can talk about later. She is an easy keeper and outstanding performer. If you need the comforts of home buy something else. If you want lots of ponies cheap, can't beat it. When we have time to restore her we will do a blow by blow for all to see.
