Well actually a couple of hours as today was sunny and above normal temperatures. That means high 30s and it felt positively warm compared to some days in the recent past.
After putting in a tractor battery and rigging up a jumper wire to activate the starter I was able to run a compression test on all cylinders. Started out with only two cylinders having compression but by quitting time I was up to seven so it was a good day. I shot some video of course but it is not included in this video I present here. This one covers the retrieval from "out of the woods" with a few vintage still photos thrown in to show how good it used to look, (and still might if I had stored it indoors 30 years ago).
I will close with a photo of another "restoration candidate" I shot earlier this week. Do I really need another project?
