Good Luck,for pressure washing simply use a good unit.
The Butler is designed by the best.
Every step has been thoroughly thought out.
There designers are very very good.Research 90 butlers,there brackets,mounts etc are in junkyards probably near you.
I have Ford Butler so engine info an pictures do not apply to assist your situation.
Simply good luck...
Nice to see updates on post.
Feel free to contribute here...

All depends on condition. I came close to buying an early eighties Ford last year. It was in immaculate condition with around 80,000 original kilometers. Perfect body and paint, ran like a top. (No, it didn't go in circles) was thinking so old fashioned lettering would like great, like a retro look. I waited too long and somebody snapped it up.
My very 1st truck had Barnum Bailey
Circus font.....with the Bane hose
Border....wit a Gene Bates Big Red
Best suck for the buck ever....

Not counting my teen age years when the gang went to the Detroit speak easys

It sucks for pressure washing. Can't or shouldn't go over 1000 psi.

So one issue I knew I was gunna get stuck at is the vacuum advance is not strong enough to pull the TBI throttle shaft springs forward. So anyone have experience with this ? I’m thinking disconnect the springs and put separate return springs attached to the throttle cable bracket ?
