Motoring Begins!

The engine is assembled and on the dynomometer!  We have begun motoring tests with the heads and injector removed so there will be no compression going on.  We are just measuring torque from friction at this point.  Torque, vibration and wear patterns are all looking good so far.  Here are some photos.

We will continue motoring testing adding in the oil lubrication and cooling system, heads, valves and adding pressure transducers to get pressures in all three cylinders.  Then we will add in the injector and actually fire!
