Default 30hp St Mary running

We had our fall show at Laurel Valley, Thibodaux, LA this past weekend. I started up the St. Mary. This engine was being finished when I first got into the hobby, most of the original members are no longer with us, I reworked the fuel inlet valve after the first running. It could use some attention now, blows some compression back into the fuel line when it's first running, normally this would stall the engine, I learned to leave the bleed valve open a little, lets the compression out and the fuel is still there for the next intake stroke. A return line to the top of the tank would alleviate this. Here's a link to the video.
