Engine Run

First engine run on 6-10-14.  All looked good except for the T-30 digital tach.  I will have to check the set up and make sure it is for 2 pulses per rev. and maybe add some software filtering.  I the Insight engine monitor showed good even CHTs and EGTs.  Alternator was charging and the warning lite went out like it should.  Checked both the Pmag and regular mag and both working fine.  Pmag continued to funtion with the RPM above 900 and circuit breaker pulled as it should with its internal power  alternator.  Oil pressure was about 60 PSI shown on the gauge.  Fuel Pressure was good on both the mechanical and electeric pumps.  The Ellison Throttle Body worked well out of the box.  I will go through thier setup proceedures on the next engine run.  My battery is over 10 years old and crapped out, so I ordered a new Odyssey battery with boo coo starting capacity!
