What a day!

After a full day of working on the plane I put in a new battery and she started on the 5th revolution.  As of by magic the right mag started working, so she's running on both her mags now.  We were able to get her oil temp up and oil pressure up into the green.  After running 1000-1200 rpm for about 10 minutes we increased her to 2000 rpm for a few minutes.

We are slowing working the engine back to life without overtaxing it.

I took a high-res photo while giving her a bath.

Here is a quick video of the run up today for the curious.


  1. Sounds like she wants to fly right now :) Where's the nose cone?

  2. The nose cone is on her now, I just had it off because I was getting it painted. I didn't think about that until after I took the picture. The next pretty day I'll get a new picture with her nose cone on there.
