When I saw the length of the video I sure did think somebody needed to edit that baby down. Turns out no, it is good as is. A little bit of gossip a few glitches and considerable cranking. That is real life stuff.

I kind of felt like I was there.

Were both ignition firing? Do they both have impulse couplings? The kick back is a little concerning.


Great job guys, nice to see it running. This is a great day for the world of RV's.

Thanks!

Default Camera Action!!

Boomer I noticed you with that camera but it did not register with me what you were doing. I would have hammed it up a little and taken my hood off too.
Cool video, Thanks!

Larry,

We had a marginal battery and dual impulse mags. We put the charger on it after the engine run.
Those light props will kick back pretty easy too.

That comes natural for you.

Great job Jay. The thank less hours you and everyone else has put into that project are commendable.

Tell Roy that was a nice Marine salute. Snappy for an old jarhead!

Great job Jay. The engine sounds great.

Kick backs make me nervous.

Jay,
You were kind of busy guarding that fire bottle and watching
out for Jarhead.
Did anyone find the key.
