Brief Description:  first engine start!!

First engine start today. Tested the brakes as the plane was taken out of the hangar. Eldon Cross video and Stuart Rauh technical observer. See https://youtu.be/kWuUTVbdINw for video.

Engine started right away but was running to high of an idle speed (about 2800 RPM). I shut it down after about 30 seconds - oil pressure was okay.

Adjusted the right carb throttle arm for proper idle - was not on the idle stop. Ran again, idle was good ran for about 2 minutes. Noticed that the EGT were xed out. Investigated and found the the EGT sensor wires were reversed polarity. Will fix and run again.
