With the wiring done there wasn’t much keeping us from doing a test fire of the engine. We put the carburetor back on, tightened a few things and turned the key. The first test fire resulted in a few fuel leaks exposing themselves. Once those were resolved we tried again… this time Evan’s shoes got a new coat of oil. Once that was fixed we tried again and this time it came alive! The engine started and idled. We still have a bunch to do to make sure it’s running right but this was a great start.This weekend we also pulled off our front quarter panels so Larry could better inspect our roll cage. He already has big plans for modifications and repairs, and exposing the front half of our cage revealed some more things that need attention.
We have a couple videos of our starting attempts posted to our Facebook so go check it out!
