I think a little Cerakote Clear on this will keep it looking fresh for at least a few days  cheesy

If your not in the A.C. your a bad ass, 109 yesterday and 101 today.  Let us know how it works out.
I'm no bad ass, I've got a little mini-split in the garage.
I did work with a pretty bad hang nail, so maybe I spoke too soon...  grin

I rolled her outside to take some video, and ran into some issues.  The kickstarter was slipping on the ratchet, and the float bowl was stuck and fuel was running out.  I'm going to bite the bullet and buy a 2017 kickstarter and see if that will work.  The 2004 is right between two notches; one is too far back and hits the frame, and the other is too far forward and hits the clutch cover.  I had hoped to set it too far forward and just slip it back a little bit, but it causes the ratchet to not fully release.  Oh well, it was free to try it that way.  Hopefully I can get the new kickstarter installed, clean the carb, adjust the rekluse clutch, and have some video next weekend.

That's a good read.  It's funny that the US took the plane apart and returned it in pieces.  During WW2, a B-29 had to make an emergency landing in Siberia.  The Soviets took the plane apart and made a direct copy, which allowed them to produce the plane in Soviet factories.  They were nice enough to return it to the Americans in one piece, albeit after a much longer period.  One of the other museums we visited had a really nice example, and you would never be able to tell them apart except for the cannons where the B-29 had machine guns. 

I wonder if the Americans made copies of the MiG-25 for later study?

On another note, we also saw a display with Francis Gary Power's U2 remains.  It was kind of like seeing your favorite team in a picture where they lost the big game.

I got the petcock worked out today, and also was able to add some protection for the radiator hoses in a couple of areas.  With that I put fuel in the tank, and gave her a few kicks.  On the third kick she busted right off and started idling.  I was very excited until I realized I had not put coolant in it, so I shut her down.  I put some coolant in it, and I now waiting for it to cool off so I can get some video.  Stay tuned...

Wow... That was cool....
And just think... The SR-71 was designed in the late 50's...

Here's a interesting article on both aircraft

One last set of pictures.  Some views from my in-laws' apartment of the newer part of the city where all the skyscrapers are.  It's called Moscow city, and contains some of the tallest buildings in Europe.  Also, I attached another of picture of the older, more traditional part of the city.  Moscow is a unique mixture of the early beautiful architecture, the sixties and seventies building boom of cheaper stuff, and today's more mainstream stuff.
