Awesome! Thanks for posting. If your son swings though the Seattle area he's got a place to stay at S43.

Default Parking Brake

Canadian JOY, thanks for suggesting a parking brake. I have noticed Jake has to struggle a little when doing the engine run up. I will talk to Jake and start looking into installing a parking brake. Thanks

The Matco hydraulic parking brake is a very simple, very effective choice for this purpose. It's activated via a Bowden cable. Apply parking brake pressure with the brake levers, pull the parking brake Bowden cable, and the brake pressure is locked in place. When the engine run-up is complete, simply push the Bowden cable and the brakes release.
