Engine has arrived

On Thursday, John Gaertner from Blue Swallow Aircraft drove to Williamson, GA to deliver the rebuilt engine. We wasted no time putting it back in the Jenny.

Then came time to hook up all the lines - water, fuel, oil, etc.

After working from noon until dark, we decided to call it a day.  

Friday afternoon was more of the same - hooked up the throttle, mixture, temperature and pressure lines.

 By 6PM, it was time to take Jenny out into the sunlight.

Success !!  It started right away.  Ran smoothly.

We have two little oil leaks to track down but once we do, the Jenny will back back in the air.
