First smoke!

The engine ran but Melissa Milner of the club says that they have either governor or injection pump problems to sort out.  She also says that the club didn't allow for enough concrete for the base and that the engine moves a little when runnng.

 

More updates when they become available.

--------------------------------------------

The latest is that the engine base was successfully enlarged and the engine is now being run regularly.
