Step 8: Touching Up
The fire of excitement that had sparked in me earlier was now roaring with an uncontrollable yearning to run the engine. It looked like it should work, and was calling me to start it and propel myself at high speeds down the pavement, cherishing those strange looks from my neighbors as signs of a job well done. But lo, I wasn't finished yet, and I pressed on evermore through the night.
Now, for the most part the job is done, except for some tweaking. I did spend a ton of time tweaking. Some tweaks I had to do are as follows:
- Add on the front cap on with electrical tape, I had to be able to move it around a bit, to get my fan to fit in.
- Bend and trim the front fan so that it would spin freely.
- Mess around with the fuel system a bunch.
- Add a small piece of plexiglass to the front of the shaft to keep the shaft in place.
