details, details. There are two ways we start an engine: #1-
We install the motor and jury rig all the plumbing and wiring
just so it will start. #2- We finish the plumbing, wiring,
and all the other engine hookups and then start it. We chose
the later so for the past ten days we've been hooking up all
the little doodads. We'll give her a go tonight! Sorry you
won't know how she runs until tomorrow.
We cheat with the
low light sender. This is a current sender that actually works.
The original ones don't ever work and they are no longer available.
Check out that
nice new injection belt!
an aircraft battery, which is just a little bigger than original.
It has more cranking amps and it has no-spill filler caps
(no cockpit corrosion).
will be installed in a base mount and will also have a top
bracket that bolts to the bottom. Originally, the battery
was held in with a rubber strap (not safe).
