Default Engine Drive Flange Magnet Upgrade

I see the step-by-step instructions, thanks! It would be great to see short video of the process :-)

We have the prop drives that are designed to solve ALL the timing issues. The Over Timed issue and between the Cylinders in all series FG19-FG33_FG60 and FG84/90. The FG73 is just over timed. The timing between cylinders is correct..
You can find all on the CH Site.

I replaced the drive flange on my engine to correct the timing problem and the engine just runs "sweet".

It is a beautiful sound! My favorite maneuver is to taxi back to the pits with the engine just above idle. As far as power goes, the DLE 55 is rated at 5.5 hp and the R60 is rated at 4.5 hp.

Hey Adrian. Does Keleo make a ring for my Saito 325r5?
I boogered up my OEM trying to weld it after a crack opened up on it.

Yes I make them. Now the FG75 will fit the FA325 . I made it to be compatible.

Thank you

I will try to do it next week . The process is so simple, I made it preset so you donot have to do any guess work.
But I will make a video.
The process is the same for all 5 engines. I will use I think the FG 90 that I have .

Thank you
Adrian

The on-board telemetry sensors for temps (1 per cylinder) showed only a deviation of <2degrees C on the ground (idle) and in flight for (mid-range)..! Seems like the careful running-in (see previous posts) paid dividents.. Temp range was between 80-90C on the ground.

Note: readings are taken between the fins just below the spark plug, on the rear side (to avoid speed/cooling effect of oncoming airflow). In reality, CHTs will be 30-40C higher on near the top of the combustion chamber.

A +20C difference between Nos 2&3 and No.1 (top cylinder) was recorder after prolonged mid/high throttle settings in the air. This was expected due to the relief airflow arrangement in the cowl (louvres only on the bottom side for scale reasons suck more cooling air around the bottom cylinders...).

A Happy customer!
Very nice!!

Where did you get the radial engine dummy or is it selfe made?

Regards, Dave
