Jensen 10 Powerplant - late morning run for fun
« on: May 22, 2024, 11:46:39 am »
  Good morning from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn!  It's a beautiful summerlike
blue-sky day 

  I lit up the Jensen 10...I haven't run it in a while.  It was hiding under
the dining room table and kept calling to me..."Wayne, please, start me up!
You put this new heater in me, fixed the cylinder crack, and jimmied the S/V
for a reason - lets go already!".

  A good runner it is a bit drippy when fully loaded.  Someday I'll redo the
sightglass.  Please note that I did fuss with the S/V to tighten it up (collar
at bottom of S/V spring).  I could easily go past one atmo and did.

Enjoy the steam,
