    Hi all. I'm building a P40 scaled down replica and Was planning on using the 3 cylinder Geo engine I sourced. I just got am email response from raven redrives that they aren't making conversions for the 3 cylinder Suzukis any longer. Now what do I do?

    Google suzuki aircraft and read what others have done for a conversion. You will find some folks who have conversions or have made one. One person whose name I have forgotten built a Wiley Jenny and wrote about torsional resonance issues in detail on the RV forum. There are ways to make your own reduction drive.
