Sustainer engine run by Jonathan St. Cloud
Just curious, how long are the guys with solo 2350 sustainer engines running their engines before they depart on XC flights? I have been running the engine for about 30 seconds but I have no idea how long it should to run to be fully lub'ed and kept in good running condition.
