Ah, a brief respite from the cold temps! Today we got the engine’s mixture and throttle settings squared away, and she ran s-w-e-e-t. Thanks to Jerry for doing the dangerous, adjust stuff next to a whirling prop thing. She starts on the first blade, idles at 700, and develops about 2150 RPM static, and the brakes hold, so life’s good. Also, we did the first W&B (<-2011 process, spreadsheet) yesterday in preparation for the FAA visit. She came in at a chunky 1768 pounds, but you couldn’t call her obese, which I had my concerns about.
