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.

Hey, it's me! I’ve been a documentary photographer for 17 yrs, software engineer for even longer, and plenty of other things in between.
