It's Alive!

At 3:15 pm June 26th the Cobra sprang to life!. It took some repair work to some of the design and ideas for the fuel system. Then fixing a few oil leaks as we brought the engine up to pressure but once those where squared away a few snaps of the throttle and the little 347 fired off. It sounded really nice with just straight headers and settled in just fine. We ran it about five minutes at 2000 rpm to start and found a few other leaks to attend too. Today Dan is fixing those leaks so we can start it up and break the engine in properly.

Dad received his padding for the front seat today and has been working all morning on putting the padding on and the seat together. He should have it installed later today and I would bet will try to take the Edsel around the parking lot once or twice.

Me, I have been bouncing back and forth between work and helping them when they need it.
