Database Manager on July 16, 2010:

Updated through online information from Daniel D. Tenerowicz. -- We dismantled, crated and moved this instrument in 1994. The instrument was in good overall condition, so the original trackers were used. The original bi-fold reservoir was releathered; all felts, felt washers and leather nuts in the instrument were replaced. A new blower was added. Some original parts of the old hand pump found in the tower from Our Lady of Lourdes RC (Buffalo) were brought with the instrument and stored inside the organ. The original hand pump was also found and installed but is non-functional.
