My Viking Bungee Comments

I have owned my AMD factory built 601XLB for almost three years. I replaced my tired bungee at that point in time. As you all know it's a pain to do once an engine Is installed.Well, 200 flights later I see signs that the bungee is starting to deteriorate.Viking came up with a permanent replacement so I installed it.Seems well engineered. The install looked easier than replacing the bungee.Unfortinately it seems that the factory built AMD does not have the plastic cap on the top of the strut.…See More

O-200 parts source pushrods tube seals newer design

I have a continental O-200 of recent (2006) vintage. It has the newer spring loaded pushrods tubes. I want to replace the seals on the tubes, but can't seem toFind a source for the seals. Spruce and Chief and all the regulars seem to stock the older style with the wire clamps. I know Real has a kit to convert, but I don't want to convert when I already have a similar spring tensioned system. Any suggestion?DaveSee More
