Its Alive!!

March 14th, 2012 No comments

It has been a while since the last post (some crazy fool decided to start moving house), busy busy busy…

Anyway, tonight was a major milestone, as I got the engine up and running. And it was surprisingly easy. I had expected problems, as this engine has sat unused for two years. However, I connected the fuel line, filled up the radiator, applied power and it started, instantly..! I was amazed, completely amazed. I thought it would turn over for a few minutes before it decided to cough into life, but not after just one crank. Plus there was very little smoke, which was nice…

Also the new exhaust pipe I made was working well. All in all very pleased.

And so to bed…
