Test driving after installing a screen set up. It leaked quite badly first time out.

I am still learning how to drive it (obviously)and need to remember to fully release the brake pedal while stopping.

Runs pretty good but I think I may have an exhaust valve not sealing all the time.

Still fun to drive though.

Neat video, thanks for posting it!

I only caught a quick glimpse at the beginning of the video, but did you have a nut on the end of the steering shaft to hold the steering wheel on?

It's chugging right along - exciting, isn't it :-)

Mark,

Good eye...the answer - No but the column is already back on the bench to be disassembled cleaned and painted. The rust on the input shaft kept it pretty solid. lol

I just couldn't resist taking it for a short spin.

Roger - Yes, it sure is.

I took my wife for a short drive and her comment was "I know we aren't going that fast but it seems a lot quicker than it is"
