As bought at TNG (Thanks Keith!):
100_2730.JPG 
Filthy grimy, bent frame, wretched mica. It has a fiber wheel and splined pump, which I've seen before. It also has a 227 vent, which Dan Kehoe thought might be original since others like this have appeared. Whatever the case may be, I got it running in a few hours:

I am not the first person to take it apart. The jet and filter were already missing from the pickup tubes, making this one functionally a Quick-Lite. Interestingly, it's also sporting a AGM rototype generator. 
Anyway, I decided to clean all that green corrosion off today:

The damage to the nickel is already done; it won't ever get really mirror-finish shiny. That's OK though, it's still a Slant, and one with several cool details at that.
Thanks for looking!

My 8 3 L220 has the fiber valve wheel and splined pump cap. Nice early features. A good find, for sure!

Bill, what date is yours? If these are all the same date, that would be interesting.
