Thanks for all the suggestions!
The day went a bit different than planned;-)
Early (07.00am) at Reid Hillview Aiport. Planning was to fly to KMCC, visit the museum. Thereafter to a field near Yosemite en thereafter back to Red-Hillview.
During run up we noticed that the alternator was not charging. We had to go back to the ramp. After some maintenance the alternator was back online but we had to deal with a very hard to start engine.
Beautiful flight over SFO and the bay and thereafter to KMCC. Perfect service at McClellan jet center. We were able to use the courtesy car to go the museum.
After returning to the airport we tried to light up the engine. In no way we were able to start the engine. An instructeur flew to KMCC but he was also not able to start the engine. Decided to Leave the plane at KMCC and drive back to Reid hill. Hopefully more luck next time
