Engine Test Run

Having wired up the electrics and made all the necessary connections for the rebuilt engine, it was time for a test run. Up until this point the engine had been very unreliable when it came to starting so it was very satisfying when it started first time on the new ignition system and rebuilt carb. I connected the garden hose to the engine to keep the engine temps in check, which is fine if you remember to turn it off before stopping the engine, otherwise water flows into the cylinders from the exhaust.
