Cant find the following engine # listed anywhere - TI228RB
Is this # good to build?
What type of engine is it?
Sorry, Wanttobuild, this is listed as a 140hp engine. Which if you have one, you would trade for a 95-110 engine. IIRC, the head's squelch area would lead to pre-detonation. My WW books are at the hangar, but this website lists them.
Thank YOU Vision_2012
There's detonation and there's pre-ignition but no such thing as pre-detonation. There's squish height and quench area but no such thing as squelch area.
The .055 chamber step can/ should be machined off and a .028 to .032 HD ring used to establish idea squish height and optimize the quench area of the chamber.
The 110 heads might be a better candidate for a DD aircraft application mainly due to smaller valve and port areas.
Ah, yes, in the Corvair forum. That's what I get for clicking "New Posts!"onder:
Thanks, i just have the Block, Crank and Cam. Will probably just look for a new candidate, Not gonna use a Carb, btw after all, this is 2017!
SDS with some harley throttle bodies, (Hainesengineering)!
I'm thinking a single seat W8 with W10 wings! Spoiler Alert: NOSEDRAGGER!
That's what I get for leaving my notes & books at the Hangar. I have a terrible memory recall for words. You're on topic.
I though pre-detonation means right before it blew up. Detonation pretty much blown up.
Doesn't make much sense unless you narrow the fuselage.
Bill Clapp built something similar.
Could make me a cowl?
hope this helps...
We do a lot of EFI for Corvairs in cars but few want to spend the funds on EFI/Corvairs in aircraft it so far. With the cast in manifolds, not so easy to do port injection on a 'vair.
Pops is the VW guy, he has a small scale cub, i thought? Is he building a single seat Tailwind?
Pops is an everything person. https://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16195 Tailwind like.
Bill Clap's tailwind was pretty much standard W-8 with 2 seats. You can ask him the specifics when he reads this thread.
