    It lives! nice job

    Also its funny you metion the head shims, on mine i seemed to have an odd number of shims. some heads had 2, some 3, and one had none. so i gave up trying to understand it and gave each head the same number (1 i think) as they didnt seem to have any use :s

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    @Tom&Carosel:
    Thanks. Really happy its up and running now. Did give me a bit of a headache with those valves and there where times when I saw my investment go down the drain but now its running.

    @jaav:
    honestly? for the money I put into it I could have bought a good used 400 here. Add the hours I spent on it and its not the least bit economical. In the end it was really just an act of stubborness and wanting a good 400 with quality parts inside...

    ORIGINAL: Reverend

    ok, its not really a secret anymore, that jaav's radial got rid of the ''al'' and turned from australian to austrian.

    I have started work on it by sorting through the parts to see what I have to work with. Now before anyone shouts ''AAaaaaw, he got a cheap engine!'': He didnt. After everything is fixed I will be exactemente 200 Euros below buying a new one. You can buy cheaper used radials here so I am really only doing this for the heck of it.

    I knew that from the start. Only, in the end, I was only €150 short of buying a new one. The Euros I wrote in the movie are w/o the engine I sent you Just wanted you to feel better about your decision to send it over.

    But like you said, I am happy it payed off, I learned a ton of stuff about these engines and I have a cool movie to show at the field

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    So, what happens if you leave out the head shims?

    Higher compression ratio? Hmmmm!

    Any piston/valve interferance W/O the shims?

    i have had no collision issues, and as mine has no compression when hot anyway upping th c/r will make little difference!

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    Well, the weather here is slowly improving and the snow is melting this means that soon i hope to have my 400 back in the air. As it all seems a little quiet round here, other than rev trying to raise the dead, i was wondering if anyone has a 400 in the air at the moment. If so, wheres the videos?!

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    After the initial break in progress according to Manual the Aussie 400AR is doing 7.350 rpm with a 20x8. It is -10C outside, the engine is still running very rich and has only 20 running minutes on the clock so I am sure these numbers will improve considerably.

    I am very happy


    @tom: love your list. been through it a couple of times in times of cold turkey

    RE: ASP/MAGNUM FS400AR Rebuild/Overhaul

    like I said, still running very rich, have not tuned it to top RPM yet.

    To be honest, I am getting old. A couple of years ago -10Β°C wouldn't have kept me from being at the field and flying. Today it just seems so much cosier in my workshop

    A cup of hot earl grey, some motivation and warbirdradio on the Laptop and you are ready to go.

    When I did the after season check on my Stearman I found at least two broken stringers at the rear of the fuse. Due to the fact, that I have fallen deeply in love with this plane I wanted to redo it anyhow to here goes

    I just received mine from HK today, a new engine for new upgrades &deg)) will fit a PRECEDENT T240 as test-bench. I don't think I will have enough time to make a mirror as Tom, but the 1st step will be ball bearings replacement by "European quality"

    Hi Olivier! A T240 seems an unusual plane for a radial but heck, no more unusual than a Fly Baby.

    My Pacer and Jayracer are not the norm as flying test benches either! But, i cannot afford another engine right now. unless i can sell the 450. But, the 450 is going in the Jungmeister and rev you are putting me to shame with the speed of your build!

    Gentlemen, miracles still happen.

    I recieved a set of cam followers from just engines today. Brilliant service as usual. Unbelievably, the Chinese have actually taken an existing part and made it BETTER! The new followers are flat bottomed as to not eat their way into the cam drum. I am genuinely impressed. Have ordered more for my own engine as to exchange the drill bits that are still running in it .

    After putting them into the 400 I am currently working on I turned it and it greeted me with the clickety-click that I only know from the big Mokis. Must be the new followers.

    My friend just sent me this link...looks like another 400 in the air and a vid I have not seen! Although the vid is not very high quality you can see the 400 has no problem dragging this giant top flight p47 around.

    I hate you guys. i have put out an advert here looking for another 400 in any condition. as they are complicated and scary chances are someone will have a broken one i can revive! Either way i hold you all to blame for the damage to my bank account
