  • JP, We DROVE the CE that got picked up! ! ! !

    We took video of the inaugural running of the "bull", so to speak. I got the oil line plugged, then fired it up and took it for a spin around the front pasture. Mike and Adam were aghast with delight seeing it actually drive under its own power for perhaps the first time in 30 years. One thing Mike noticed was that the engine did not smoke in the least. I got the carb worked out enough to get it to idle, even though the linkage was still sticky, it was run around in a few circles, then driven onto the trailer! ! ! Way cool. Mike is going to get brakes on it right away and may take it for a drive when he gets it home. That would be way cool, eh? The transmission and shifter on this CE feels better than most I have ever driven. Excellent trans, by the feel of it. I only have enough room to barely get into 2nd gear though. I will try to post the video on youtube.
