so what you need now are the correct hands and sweep. Note that installing the sweep on those #22's is kind of a pain. The trick is to place something under the detent spring that holds the sweep pinion in place. otherwise you will see that as you press down the tip of the pinon pushes into the movement and you can't get it to catch. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

so I suggest you begin to buy up parts lots. This is the best way to build up a supply.
