I finally got a chance to play with my champ today. I had put oil in the cyl. last fall after I brought it home (259). I pulled the front clip and freed the engine up, cranked it a lot then put in plugs, a coil, hot wired it and primed it. It fired right off. I filled the carb (non-original 2 jet rochester) and tried again. It idled, albiet with a miss. It seemed to smooth out but with no coolant I was satisfied just to hear it run. A good day.

That's excellent, Rob! It's a great feeling, isn't it?

I'm so impressed with people that can manage more than one Stude project at a time and actually make progress because my one project keeps me plenty busy!

Thanks for sharing, and keep the updates coming. It's motivating to hear of the revival of another old spirit!
