Not looking hard enough to see how much needs to be done, but has some promise at a glance. Not that i know promise when i see it, i suppose...

There is quite a bit to be done. I was in contact with the Seller the first time he posted this, and he sent me various pictures. Unfortunately he is in a remote area of Northern California and he would have to travel some distance to have it packed and shipped. He's not interested in packing it himself (don't blame him a bit), and is hoping for an in-person pick up.
If anyone wants to go get it for me I'll pay them a reasonable fee to do so. :) Or...just sell me a four valve King somebody. :)

I was in contact with this seller also when this first posted on Craiglist. In addition to needing some tubing replaced that's gone, my repair tech and I looked at the pics of the valves he sent and decided they would need to be replated. So i passed on the deal.
