Been setting the 3rd engine up to run extended times. Went to town for new 1" heater hose, which is what's used for radiator hoses on these units. I swapped sides for the radiator so it would utilize the engine mounted fan to cool her down. The electric fans were all gone. Got it all ready and fired her up. Man is this engine sweet! This is my keeper for sure. Super responsive, and at throttle when hot, a full 64psi oil pressure. About 60psi at low idle!
I would have pics and video, but I sprayed a huge wasp nest near where I was working, and lets just say I didn't kill all of what looked to be 50 wasps on the darned thing! I'll go back with a small can of gasoline & drop the whole lot of them, once they return to the nest.
I am VERY happy with this engine. it's gonna be awesome mounted in the ________!
Oh, and the alternator charges the battery perfectly also!
