  • TR250 Engine Start and Break In Livestream, Saturday January 2nd, 10 AM Toronto Time

    Hi All,

    First, Happy New Year...hopefully 2021 will be a better year for ALL of us.

    I am hoping to start it off on the right foot and will (hopefully) be doing a first start and break in on my newly rebuilt TR250 engine. I am going to attempt to do this on a YouTube livestream tomorrow morning at 10 am Toronto time. If you’d like to tune in, you can check out my YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/-1woYi2emw4

    Wish me luck!

    Cheers
    Tush

    Good Luck Tush..
    And if engage the starter and you just hear one loud backfire, don't be too concerned, it's just the distributor drive gear 180 out...
    How's it go...BTDT ?

          Anybody got some simple instructions on how to link in to this "Livestream?" I've never done it, but would love to be in the audience. I'm a big fan of Tush's videos.

            The way I view a "live stream", is to just go to YouTube on my TV, a third party channel on Comcast cable, and as I've been watching Tush's vids on a steady basis, it will automatically pop up as a scheduled event. Then just select it and view. Can't wait!

              Thank you! I found the livestream listing on my computer on the YouTube page, where it allowed me to "schedule" it so it will send me a message when it starts. Toronto time is U.S. Eastern time. It will be fun to watch!

            Good Luck Tush. Not that you need it.

              Be advised that when (at least, when I) tuned to YouTube TV on Dish Network, it shows the livestream starting at 3 pm. NOT CORRECT. Live stream starts on Tush's YT channel at 10am Eastern time, Toronto time. (or 9am CST).

                    I came to this forum listing looking for an update. Didn't find one so I'll post that I watched the one and a half hour livestream where they couldn't get the engine to fire up. That is now posted as a video on YouTube. I haven't heard any update on when they will try again. If anyone has heard an update, please post it here!
                    Thanks

                      Thank you !
                      I'm sure it won't take long. It must be one of the basics slightly awry.

                    Congrats, Tush on a successful start up and break in. It sounds awesome!
                    Now for the dialing in process on the Webers.

                        A new beginning! I was unable to catch the livestream, but it sounds like it went well in the end. Yay, Tush! Well done! Looking forward to watching it soon!

                        Happy New Year all!

                          Well done chaps!
                          (Glad I just eyeballed the cam timing when I did mine. )
                          Really surprised at how cool your motor ran during the cam run in, I was only able to run 18 minutes for that initial start up.
                          But then, I did it in the middle of July, with the body on, in sunny CA.
                          Guess there's advantages to living in the frigid North, eh?
                          Bet you'll sleep well tonight dude!
