Boy I dunno--came with a normal (and beat) set of Krausers. Today's progress was getting the rest of the wiring into the headlight bucket and detailing the main case and the timing chain cover. Motor as I got it:

I'm OK with the match at 20 feet, a little leery at five feet, and I don't like it at one foot. Trying to keep my perspective. Cylinders will be coming off to reseal their bases and the PR tubes and I may redo some of it while they're off.
