The First Start!


The first start went well!  The only minor issue was the mixture being set a little rich and the idle rpm being set a little too low.  We made a few adjustments and everything was ALL GOOD!  Special Thanks to Jeff Johnson, Udo Reif, and Mike DiMarino for their expertise.  Thanks to Chris Fendley, Rob Wilson, Tracey Cooper, and Clint Ivester for the pictures and video.
