I'm not sure why they thought it was a good idea to fire this puppy up inside though.

Amazing they were able to bring it back. Looks like it still needs some work but it is running.

I could've figure out what the CO2 tank was for at first. I think they're using it to pressurize the fuel system?

They said in the video that cylinder 3 isn't firing either due to a bad injector or bent valve. Either should be a relatively easy fix.

I think it has a pneumatic starter.
