My Mazda 808 Coupe is now running. A little bit of choke and it fired right up. It sounds a bit weedy apparently there is no muffler on the end of the exhaust. There is a resonator so it is not too noisy. The front brakes have now been done too – I’ve got three spare sets of pads due my screw ordering them. Drove it up and down the driveway a couple times. That is as far as I can go until I get insurance and a plate for it. A little video of it running – fairly unexciting. I got a refund for the wrong starter as well.
Next step is the check the rear brakes out. Then insurance, license plate and fuel up the tank for a longer test drive.
