There are quite a few EME's in this part of the country. I also know the kill ratio. Mostly pilot/tractor pilot related. As they are rather short lived performing plow duty.
Those little so called gems should be approached with The Crusher right from the get-go guys. "DO NOT" let them get one gasp of air!!!

By the way my so called gem is for sale with a "real" Walbro carb that "actually" works from the get-go!!

Brad, don't think anyone is really against any of off-shore stuff (well not too much)

For me it's the quality of stuff first. The off-shore stuff has never treated me well, hence I choose quality first!

As far as paint shakers..hmmm..I have watch a lot of so called "lo idle" at the flying field and videos. What I have seen is any engine that have been taken down to what I consider a LO idle have shaken quite dramatically. A lot of people brag about how smooth their engines are at idle, but not till they've bumped the throttle to 1600 rpm. Then the bragging starts!

Far as the DA 120 Dale inherited from me, perhaps the pipes help it some, not sure but it runs extremely well.

Do they all vibrate the same, no, but they do all shake at a "LO idle"!

I'm guessing we put all this to personal experiences and preferences.

But quality is very first in line for me!

I actually called them a Marvel. As I could not see our relationship growing had I ever called an EME, a "Gem"
All a joke.
But, I did get you to admit that one still resides in Beaverlodge, ha.

As for quality, I do agree. And at my (our) age, I'm finding less disposable time. Measured in years.

So if I buy a Zenoha 62, 15yrs ago. And don't get into the stronger/lighter frame of mind. It will out live me. Proof quality equalls longevity.

But an MVVS will growl, and pull, and last longer than either of us.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Jack, please explain what "quality" means to you.

BTW isn't 3W made " off-shore"?

I suggest you one buy of each, tear them down, check all their tolerances, along with castings and materials used, oil ratios required to take up the bad tolerance specs, quality of spark plug hole threading etc. etc. etc and get back too me.

Yes, MVVS, ZDZ and 3W are built across the pond, but in better waters and that's quality!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Jack do you consider DA casted cylinders good quality?? I think the GP is far more superior to them. On the DA I see a lot of cut corners

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I have had both. I do consider GP cylinders to be top notch, as are MVVS/ZDZ using italian coating contractors.
I see nothing wrong with DA cylinders, in the right hands.

I believe they are good quality. But it does seem most of these newer engines are coping and sometimes using parts from one of the better engines built!

I have no qualms on what you boys fly...send me all of your boat anchors!

All goes back to a couple posts ago, depends on previous experiences and what your personal preferences are.

Fly what you love guys...I do!!!
