    Default Woohoo, it runs

    Well, after fighting fuel and blower gasket issues (that damn near burned up my boat)....it actually runs.

    Many thanks to Barry (Obnoxious001) for building me such a kick ass motor.

    Please excuse the mess. I have a ton of cleaning to do but regardless, I can't wait to get it wet.

    Thanks guys. In a sick sort of way, I'm kinda glad it fought me the way it did. It makes the actually lighting it off that much better...

    Tomorrow will be spent cleaning, replacing the carpet that got burned from the fire and dialing in the timing/carbs a bit more.

    Hey Lonnie, buy that Southwind.

    Sounds killer. Looks good too. Looks like your just about ready to run the lake in your boat. Hope to see the maiden voyage.
