There was no fanfare and no post. You didn't miss anything.
This project has been such a pain in the a**. I broke my thumb in a stupid accident trying to unstick that stubborn piston. I have it running but am not happy with it. It shakes and hollers like a noisy monster and constantly soils it's diapers with oil. I I feel like I made a mistake giving a monster new life. Time will tell if I am able to tame it suficiently to use it.

After working on it's
restoration all summer I now have it running and it can actually make almost
6 kW when pushed into the black smoke realm.
So where was I? Did I miss your previous post of your excitement about getting it running? I hadn't heard more since the piston was stuck.
