Success!

She runs well.  My i-Pad crashed last week and I need to reload the video app.  I am going to see if I can load a clip straight to YouTube.  Video will be forth coming at some point.  Right now I am sitting on my deck with a big smile on my face with this thing purring away.

It's not much of a video; but here it is:



It is not pretty right now. It has a temporary rubber ring around one flywheel to aid in starting.  The magnet for the ignition is mounted in a temporary Teflon block pressed on the crank.

Congratulations Bob,
You must be relieved and thrilled at the same time! Now you can do the fine tuning and prettying up.
Great job!

The main thing is that its a runner Bob. Thanks for the video. The prettying up part will be a lot more fun too, knowing now that it runs.  Well done  :cartwheel: :whoohoo:

Thanks George. Yes, I'm very relieved.  I had done too much testing along the way for it not to run.  It is funny how one little flaw in one part (cracked Corian) can mess the whole thing up.

Thanks for all of your support and input throughout the build.
