Default It is alive!!!

Happy 2010 everybody!

I spent the evening going thru the magneto for the Hollingsworth.
Sorted out the adjustments, and peaked it out. Then for good measure replaced the spark wire. I got spark, lots of it. Set the timing, set the choke, and pulled the rope exactly once. Fired right up!

You gotta be kidding me. I had not started that engine in like 5 months.
