September 3rd

I spoke to Vince, and the new spare carbs are older than we thought, and are jetted as single carbs.  Duh, they'd have run like crap in that case.  Aaanyway, they're quite worn, too, so we've decided to just break down and order the parts.  The good news is that he ran a compression test, and dry, the engine hit ~110psi.  With a little oil in the pistons, it hit ~135psi, so there doesn't seem to be any sign of damage in the engine.  I'll be very watchful of it for a few flights though, once the carbs are all fixed up :o)
