    Non Gasoline Spark Ignited

    Thanks for The coments First of all no taxable gasoline is used! The biggest diferance between jet fuel and no.1 heating oil is filtering and water removall. The valves and cam shaft last for ever. It's a two stroke! The oil never needs to be changed and it uses less oil than a...

    Hello Jman The reason for lost posts has been found. Changing the type style makes the board loose it. So I never (anymore) change the type style. Simple fix but it works. I use a dial up connection to the net. Just thought you'd like to know. Lee

    Will that Engine Work?

    Hello everyone[/ATTACH] The corvair engine man has a very good method to test an engine that you want to run on your plane. It is called a dyno which is indeed a dyno. Just take a small trailer and modify to test and store your engine. It can be hooked up to your vehicle via the trailer hitch...

    Reliable Ignition System

    Thanks for Replying Yes the Australians make the only piston aircraft engine with a pointless, batteryless, and all electronic dual ignition system in the world. Maybe the folks from Conti and Lyco should go there and learn. Then they will realize FADEC means fun and dumb engine control.

    Don't Dry Start your Engine

    Hello This is a reply to some one that lied! When the storage container uses 2 qts to fill and you are down 3 qts that means the engine will be down a total of 5 qts before you prelube. If there is a system to prelube an aircraft (homebuilt) to buy tell us where and how much! When you...

    Don't Dry Start your Engine

    Hello Mike Keep your mower some place warm. You're right the cost of the prelube could be more than the cost of your mower.

    Don't Dry Start your Engine

    Hello Engines require oil to lubricate and cool like the body uses blood to do. About 50% of the wear occurs during start up. Stationary engines have a prelube pump to use Before start up. These engines can run 20,000 hours at full load between overhauls. Starting a dry and cold engine...

    CH701 Sans Slats?

    Hello Unable to edit post #19 I will explain WHY removing the slats makes the tail lighter. As the wing chord is shortened (removal of slats) the cg moves forward and lightens the tail. Rather than removing the slats to make the tail lighter just load the plane with a more forward cg! What is...

    Break in That New Engine!

    Hello all If more people would see what goes on in a dyno engine test cell they would be amazed. The first thing done is warming the engine up. This can take up to 20 minutes. Good air flow or water for coolant is confirmed. Leaks or problems are checked for at this time. After proper warm up...

    Break in That New Engine!

    Hello People spend lots of time and money to build thier home built and putt around until they learn how to fly it well. The new home built can have a new or zero timed engine in it. To properly break in a new engine requires high load (70-100% power) for the FIRST 100 hours. You can give it to...
