Well this is it - the last of the easy stuff on the Turd Bird project - hopefully. This is a used engine and I have no idea what it's history is. I cleaned it up a bit, the bearings seem good. It has compression, the glow plug works, and the hi and lo jets have been set to preliminary positions. I will just C-clamp it to one of the saw horses in the back yard and give it a preliminary tune - assuming it starts - and let half a tank of nitro rip through it. If everything passes - I'll take all that junk off the test fixture and start installing it in the plane.
Gawd I hope everything works!!!
