Short Description:  Second engine run

Today we ran the engine for the second time. We installed the windscreen again. I removed the plastic covering had cleaned the windscreen and top window with Plexus. The first engine start it ran great but we had to shut down due to a fuel leak. Fuel was leaking from a nut at the fuel manifold. Aftering we tightened it we started the engine a second time. This time we noticed an oil leak in one of the fittings on the oil cooler. We tightened all the nuts on the cooler and started again. The engine starts right up and runs great. All the numbers look good. Still had a drop or two of oil around the cooler so after correcting that we started a fourth time. We ran the engine for a few minutes and then shut down. We noticed an oil leak around the oil temp sensor so will have to bring some more tools to correct that. We had trouble releasing the parking brake and discovered that the flexible wire for the brake and the B nut on the parking brake arm were not of the correct geometry. Somehow during our effort to release the brakes we had introduced some air bubbles in the line. This will require another bleed, arghh.
