Machined Aluminum parts after
anodizing. I do not worship gold, golden is not my favorite color, but it
seems golden color best fit our engine. They could be anodized to customers'
favorite color, if the color is available in the factory.
The blue connector is for fuel, black for lube oil, and red for gas. If gas is not used (for H150B engine, it equipped with direct kerosene starter, so gas connector is not used), the red connector is for measuring P2 pressure.
With new combustion chamber, new fuel
line, new lube line, I've got this engine assembled.
This engine will be put to test in a few days.
