It Runs, Part Deuce

The 1750cc engine runs. In fact, it started up instantly, doesn't smoke like it did on part 1, and has no visible oil leaks. This time, we built an engine test stand, using the engine stand as a base. Mr A. came over and took care of the wiring, and by about 11am we had it making noises. This way I can run it and actually see any problems, unlike when the engine is buried in the race car frame.

Here are a few pics, and a link to a short movie:

And the link to the video:

I'll run it a bit more this week before swapping into the chassis.

Now for beer and grub.
