Good news! The Saito took a bit of glow fuel to loosen up but then it fired right up on the test stand and ran until I shut her down! This motor will be a good fit for the SE 5!

The Saito turned out to be a GREAT motor, and with the carb turned around I was basically able to run the throttle linkage straight to it with only a slight bend in the wire to hook into the throttle arm. I finished the build in a timely fashion but for many and varied reasons the maiden had to wait until today, and she flew like a dream. One of the reasons the maiden had to wait was because I really wanted some film. My buddy Larry helped out. It's not the best but it is a difficult camera and it was his first time and I think he did good.
