Thanx for the info.
I guess I should have stuck to my guns on that one.
So far it looks like I might be spot on.
You are right I need to post pics. i sent some to the other guy and he ID it as "A REAL EARLY 0" pointing out how the bump on the side plate was straightened in later production..
I also thought that it may have some mix matched parts.
All serial numbers match even the stock. So that is encouraging.I'll get the pics on as soon as I can
