    What's this cool down crap about. If I were pissed it would be deserved, but I'm not. I stated my opinion, that's all. I didn't do it with anger or to be hateful or rude. It seems to me that you're the one that's angry because I referred to the moderators as a clique. Again, you don't like what...

    Ok, so another moderator doesn't like my wording. With all due respect, I really don't give a ****. I didn't like the wording from Orion either. However the moderators didn't remove his accusitory statement or insulting comments about eyball engineering or backyard engineering and the one about...

    Natty, you have an eye for good character. Ben has always been there to help whom ever would ask. The comment that started the whole thing was from Orion. In regard to engineering a PSRU he said "few if any do it right". That's a blanket statement at least and sounds to me like a "FALSE...

    Ben built an airplane that works very well with the auto conversion. He shared his story with all for education and success. He's gone because the moderators sensored the thread. They didn't like what we had to say so they took out his post and mine as well leaving huge gaps in the...

    Engine for a Titan T-51

    You will like the "music" of the 4.3. No high pitched whine. Sounds like a dirt track racer. In fact, I would like to incorporate mufflers on it, if it were'nt for the weight. I've been known to fire mine up for motivation a few times. Belted air power has redrives on the shelf as well as some...

    Engine for a Titan T-51

    Say there Tex, There seems to be some issues with trying to "big engine" the T-51. Here's a link to read. https://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/forums/warbirds-warbird-replicas/2826-big-engine-titan-p-51-a.html Seems odd to me that a 3/4 scale mustang would be so underpowered considering the...

    Engine for a Titan T-51

    Click on the printouts to enlarge them then click on them again and a new screen will open up. The cursor will have a + sign to enlarge again so you can actually see the chart. This is a pretty mild cam but the power is right down in the meat of the operation of the engine. As for the "merlin...

    Engine for a Titan T-51

    I have a couple of questions for you. What is the HP range for the T-51? What rpm does the honda need for the rated HP? Does the honda use a redrive? Here's the printout for my engine.

    LS1 Engine for aircraft?

    There isn't even a boss where the bolt used to go. This is a standard sbc/bbc bolt pattern? Hmmm?

    LS1 Engine for aircraft?

    I was reading about the LS last night on HOT ROD mag and one of the first things said was that there are no standard fasteners on the LS engine. The pics aroung the block showed the bell housing flange that doesn't look like the standard bolt pattern we've come to know. Did I see this correctly...

    **** Steve, are you the life of the party or what. You bout scarred me half to death with that post. smile All jokes aside though, if one goes commercial, you can sit back and have a nice beverage of your choice and read the latest aviation pub and then take nice nap to be fully rested when you...

    PRSU Plans

    Dave Blanton passed away back in the 90's. No one picked up his redrive for continued production. Dave's 2.0:1 ratio gave way to the 1.6:1 because Dave said "HE WAS TRYING TO TURN THE ENGINE TOO FAST". You see, oddly enough, Dave Blanton and Jess Meyers were friends. One worked with the Ford...
