I am curious to see what the inverted running is like so i can determine if i have to mount an on-board glow or not...



Hi Mike, If you got your engine tune right, you won't need a on borad glow, I'm useing a satio 150 inverted, in my Rascall 110
Never have any problom with engine, I fly alot around 1/2 to maybe just under 1/2 thor.

Shawn,

You use a remote glow setup when the cowling gets in the way of attaching an external glow source.

It's finished!

I received my prop washer, and painted and polished it. The engine turned out quite well, I think. I am very pleased with it.

Kmot, pleased you should be! What a nice job. What is the mark or line on the prop nut for? Tom

Tom:

I don't see the line in the pictures here, but as a guess you're seeing the slots to allow the nut to lock on the thread of the crank. The end of the nut is tapered, it seats in a matching cone on the face of the washer. As the nut is tightened it is squeezed to lock the asssembly. See attached pictures.

Bill.

Thanks for the compliments, fellas! It's much appreciated!

Yes, as Bill said it is one of a few slots cut into the nut so that it is squeezed by the taper in the prop washer to lock down on the crankshaft.

Beautiful engine, K, you should get a nut with green slots.

Kmot, How did you get your prop like that? I got a Tiger Moth and a prop like that would look good!

Hello; Your results on the paint job have encouraged me to paint an engine or two, that black green with the chrome rocker covers topping it all off, looks very nice. Cummins green, detriot green, ford blue, what will it be? How about painting it to match the plane? I like the "trademark" thing when a fellow (we all know who) returns an engine painted after repairs. Great imagination fodder.

Hello; When I think of all the beautiful engines I have seen, I think the prettiest have been bare (shiny) metal, I'm think ing Ducati shaft driven ohc V tewins, or a Norton commando, or my Laser 100, even my BMW flat twin. Maybe just a touch of colour somewhere. The black barrel is nice Bill, I painted the barrels on my Kawasaki Mach 3 in '70, a few years later, every body did it.

I think this is pretty. A black engine with polished aluminum highlights.

You mentioned your CowSucky. Look at the third picture and drool. Picture taken in Winston-Salem, NC. Rode it there, showed it, rode it home.

Dennis: That prop is a hand made Asano Powermaster prop. All I know is that they were made by this Asano fellow for the old Tournament of Champions contest planes back when. It has, if I count them correctly, 18 laminations. I do not know where you can find any others.

Kmot, very nice job on that engine, I hope it goes into an un-cowled airplane.

Best regards from old bird.

Ah, a good 24 hrs in a simmering crockpot of green anti-freeze will fix it back up again. <WINK>

Do you really think 24 hours of soaking will remove all the discoloration, and let us see the beautiful bare metal again?

Haw.
