Does anyone know what goes between the piston and the wrist pin? Is it simply an O ring? I have a 61 FX that was cleaned in anti freeze and these swelled up and had to be burned out.

Prop hub wouldn't budge. I tapped the crankshaft and it moved back into place. The whole crankshaft must have slid forward somehow. Very strange.

There is no endplay in the crankshaft so I'm leaning towards a problem with the prop hub. Which way do the threads go? Could it just have backed off?

Tragic for who? I would say it was predictable. Too much messing around with the elevator on final. Obviously not too experienced. Almost had it though. I kept saying "Go Around!!"

It is a shame this thread is dead, but I am wondering if anyone has powered their P-40 with the DLE-20RA. If so, how does it fit and work in the cowl. I'm thinking of going this route.
