    Oil cooling control is not used (not necessary) for SPG systems. About oil level, new gearboxes can be ordered with oil level windows. Picture attached

    Geo Metro 3 Cyl - A Good Engine??

    I have never sold anything made in Poland :) I know, AirTrikes 160 (AT-160) can be successfully used with more powerful than 160 HP engines. The questions are duration and reliability. Marketing numbers and strategy is your choice. I prefer to be conservative in everything related with aviation...

    Geo Metro 3 Cyl - A Good Engine??

    Yes guys, it is me. I work with Suzuki G series from 20 century. My experience is enough to build an aircraft with Suzuki G13BB which becomes FAI World champion for 4 last years, and I know at least 2 companies (one from China, another from US using China made engines and gearbox components)...

    Geo Metro 3 Cyl - A Good Engine??

    Yes, I agree/ The difference between 3-cyl and 4-cyl is also night and day, that is why I build and sell 4-lyl engines G13BB now

    Options for Suzuki G13--Complete FWF and less robust assitance

    I don't know the numbers, it is not my design.

    Geo Metro 3 Cyl - A Good Engine??

    We built many G10 engines installed on our trikes and other aircraft, NA and turbo. It is a solid, well tested and proven engine. We have gearbox system available for them, it is the same as for G13 engine

    Options for Suzuki G13--Complete FWF and less robust assitance

    K engines are OK for an aircraft. I converted K14B Suzuki, it is available without Variable Timing. If somebody wants a conversion kit for K14, I can supply one.

    Interesting new BMW 1800

    This problem is well known and has been solved years ago. Decision - centrifugal clutch. Your propeller choice is also not the best, Warp is too heavy. We sell these conversion kits and converted engines. More info Air Trikes: Engines and Conversion Kits.

    SPG redrives from Air Trikes Enterprises Canada ?

    For example BMW R or Subaru EA EJ with SPG gearboxes are used a lot for tractors. Honda, Suzuki, Corvair... I agree with cluttonfred For example this is a picture of Corvair installed with 1.8 ratio SPG engine.

    Nice engine! What about alternator? Oil tank?

    4500rpm propeller to negate the PSRU

    If you compare with not efficient brand (IVO, Warp, GSC, Ultra etc), yes, 6-blade E-prop can be a winner easy. But I'm pretty sure I can propose more efficient 3-blade prop the same diameter.
