Successful Engine run

We got the engine to run fine today.  Yes, it was the fuel pump's fault.  Well...kinda.  We had the inlet and outlet hooked up backwards.  I admit it.  My fault. Turn in that A&P license, Brian.

Anyway, once we switched the hoses, the engine ran well.

Tomorrow, I want to check the valve clearances, do a compression check, check the oil screen and check the plugs. 

More soon
