LOL. I totally agree, takes a lot of man hours to get to the sweetness (similar too marriage).

But then there's Dale.....much wiser than the rest of us...straps it too the bench at Christmas and let's her buck for 3 months!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I found you have to really be careful when breaking in CS versions btw. They tend to get hot easy so I always stuck to breaking them in airborne. If bench running I ran a thermocouple and kept a close eye on them. Once they loosen up then they are like any other engine. The first few runs it is shocking to see how fast the temps can rise.

So maybe Dale's signiture needs to be modified!!! Perhaps he needs to add ", unless it's a RedHead" to his signiture

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Andy ran the snot out of the 3W110cs right from the get-go. No idea what the temps got to, but surely it was hot. Vibrated like a DA120 at the beginning Moderate power and tight. But always very reliable. By the time I got it back, was a whole different engine Same with the 55cs, 80xi, 106cs.

Yup....strap it on and wrap the tape around the throttle....either goes or don't.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

LOL!! Okay - that's enough banter about 3W - poor Dale is gonna have an inflated chest and a head the size of a beachball

I'll just mention one other thing... thank's to the W.C. for giving up the MVVS58 to the E.M. . Scott has a sweet, sweet combo and that 58 is quite the powerplant

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I don't think i'll ever complain about pullin' a cowl off a toy airplane again! Just spent the last two hours pulling stuff off a Yamaha quad trying to get access to the throttle housing on the carb. All that work just to re-install a retaining screw, that should have had locktite on it from the get-go.

At least with a toy airplane you can put it up to a decent working height. Couldn't move the tandem truck parked over the floor hoist. The farmer in me is thankful for the inch of rain early this AM. From about 7:00 PM to midnight last night we had one of the wildest lightening storms I've had the pleasure of witnessing!
