In the video the engine is cooling down at 1,000 rpm after a full 40 minute break in run.  The engine is a rebuild and a partial update.  It flew 150 hrs years ago, but was removed from the damaged airframe after an acquaintance of the former owner botched a landing attempt from 20 feet in the air. Since then the engine got a full tear down and inspection, a different crank, a 5th bearing, gold oil system, and a 2400-L starter system. it retains the old black hub and bolt on head pipes.
