I've a 13B. It had been set up without the oil metering pump so I had to replace the driven gear, pump and oil lines. I've been looking at MT and Warpdrive as well as the Ivoprop.
I played in your website this morning. Nice site! The shot I am looking for is the back of the oil pan bracket to the firewall mounting setup. In the drawings Paul sent, it appears that the front gear bungee crossbar penetrates the firewall brackets. The photo with your son in it is almost clear enough. Could you get me a closer shot? Thanks again for your help.
Thanks. Your mount looks like the Jerry Hey mount that I have. Can you send me a few shots of the back of the oil pan to firewall set up? I have jsut gotten some info from Paul Lamar but would love to see actual photos as well. Are you using Tracy Crook's fuel injection and/or gear reduction unit? If so, what prop have you decided on. I'm sure I will have a zillion questions as I move along. My 13b has been converted and I have installed the metering oil pump adapter, new oil lines, welded up a dynamic air chamber, etc. Now on to the cooling components.
Yes sir, you are correct about that. Im thinking about getting the fuselage kit and going forward from there (A bit easyer with a groop of kids) I am still trying to get the builders books from the builder, its hard tracking them down.
I love your engine work. Good Stuff! we are doing a 13b good times.
Ken, Since you are getting close to making attachments for you flaperons, are you going to use the standard factory system with a slot in the side of the fuselage or go with the "FRISBY NO SLOT" system? Since I live in Wisconsin I chose the no slot flap system to keep wind and rain out of the A/C. Rotary looks good Mazda?
Attached my wings this weekend! I needed to locate the flaperon pivot points on the fuse sides to finish the cabin work, so I took advantage of the 3 day holiday. I took them back off after marking the hole locations and sitting in the left seat making engine noises for a while.
