WOW.
Good luck to you Instg!!!!
all I have to do is pull it out in the driveway and put in my 6 gallons of 100LL AVGAS.
And make wifey a pot when she wakes up (it's "her car")
takes another sip of Becks and goes back to bed 'till the rain stops.

I learned...... after puttin' it back together and restarting there are tweaks and adjustments.... pesky leaks, proper tuning.... man it didn't do this before now it does and visa versa..... Its a grab your heart moment.... but after tweaking re-tweaking and adjusting it turns out....... boy am I glad I did it.

Yes indeed, Congrats!!! A nervous moment with a lot of trepidation, anxiety, fears, and worries, but about as good as it gets. Have fun.
