I am in the process of restoring this machine and want some advice first are the screw holes in the top factory? Although the corner blocks look old they were held in with epoxy ,second the back has been split (and repaired) should i continue looking for another case ?? Since it is a simple case just replace that section . This version appears to use a normal Exhibition sound box (have that) although it is similar to the one that was in the YT recently the crank too is different thanks to one of the guys I have a horn coming Opinions :)

Hi. I've been told by the forum experts that many variations of the Model O exist. I have most of one :D I bid and won a Searchlight horn at a local auction, the auctioneer threw in the O. It needs a horn and elbow, I have been looking for these two items but I'm convinced there are none left on earth. Back to your machine, the motor board on mine does not have any additional holes other than the three motor screws. I appears the top was glued on. The ID says VIC O 14578 D. Hope this helps some. I added a few photos..
