Ooh, Shiny!

So, this is engine #2. Our initial search for sim cards and relish packets came up negative, so I guess that's a good sign. We got everything buttoned up today, and we should have it back in the car as soon as we figure out what to do about our pretty-much-destroyed motor mounts.

In stark contrast to engine #1, which ate a rod bearing (in addition to the sim card), this motor turns completely freely, and there are parts of the cycle where I can turn the crank with just my hands on the crank pulley.
