So we found a heated hangar in the next row over at South St. Paul. Today was moving day...
That's my son, Patrick, doing the honors.
I'm in the process of coming up with a "to do" list. It's far from complete, but here's what I've got so far.

Adjust alternator to proper belt torque and safety wire
Mag switch off: Test for 0-10 Ohms between wire terminal and airframe
Mag switch on: Test for infinite resistance
Starter button activate: Hear start relay activate and +12 volts at end of DISCONNECTED starter cable.
