Glenn test flies the Zenith after Carburetor Overhaul.

I've been up to my elbows in engine oil the last few days as I took my Ranger engine from my Fairchild apart to replace a cracked cylinder. I had a break today when Glenn decided to put the freshly overhauled carb back on the Zenith.
He test flew it and it got airborne in about 300 feet on 1/3 throttle. The temps were much cooler than before when it had the wrong carb jets in it. When he winds up the starter and then we hear that 1340 growl it makes the hair on my arms stand on end.
