Engine Vibration Dampening

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I remember many years ago, probably in the late Ď80s and early Ď90s that engine vibration was a very hot topic. Many manufactures emerged that provided special engine mounts all designed to reduce vibration. I believe that the big push was generated by pattern flyers that were trying to keep down the noise level of their aircraft. Interestingly, now I read or hear very little about the subject. Have our engines improved so much that vibration isnít the big deal that it was in the past or are we now simply less concerned? I donít believe that anyone in our club uses special engine mounts, regardless of engine size. Iíd be interested to learn what other flyers think about this topic.

For my larger 4-strokes (.91 and above) I use a vibration mount and re-enforce the firewall, just in case.

That is just a personal selection however under the "better safe than sorry" sorry classification and from input from a bunch of friends.
