Default 91-CD died in the air

Hi Laurenne,

I recently posted pics of my ModelTech P-47 with a 91-CD and oil collection installed. Up to today I have been very happy with the engine. It started easily and I was just getting it broke in and had just accomplished a good low idle however, today it died on a 1/4 to 1/2 throttle flyby. The plane didn't crash (whew!) but when I walked out and picked up the plane the prop just freewheeled (the nut is not loose). After removing the engine from the plane the crank turns perhaps a 1/4 in either direction. I fear the connecting rod is broken or come off.
Please advise

Thanks
Bob

Hi Bob

I am very sorry to hear that your engine has failed, this is very unusual. If you could email me your full details ([email protected]) I will issue you with a warranty log number and the details of our US service centre.

Best regards
Laurenne

NB. Sorry for the delay in replying but I wasn't receiving notifcation that there were messages in this forum.

Just wanted to follow up on the engine repair. Bill emailed me when he got my engine and again once it was diagnosed. It only took 1 day to repair and is already on the way back. The crank pin was sheared.

Great service, Thanks to all involved

Bob
