2432 Type IV First Fire Up
After assembling this Jake Raby 2436 we fired it up for the cam break in
run. It sputtered to life and around 3:30 in the video it really smoothed
out and ran great. The red hot Exhaust was due to a hole in the pipe that was
left unplugged (EGT sensor probe). Next we'll install an SDS fuel +
ignition system, then restart it on the stand for initial tuning, and
finally install it into a Porsche 914 for final tuning.
