Re: EFI on 4 cyl?

Pacemaker did their EFI and electronic ignition on our 4 cyl Lycoming, it works awesome, if you can justify the cost, it's well worth the gains.

Re: gpu 220

as Twister69 said if you have oil coming out of the breather, which is not uncommon on GPU engines, I would suggest an air/oil separator as well, we do have them custom made if you want one.

Re: O-540 mags have no kill switch wires

We have the P-lead kits for these mags and I agree with John, you should convert the left mag over to an impulse mag. We can handle this for you also if you want.

Re: Prop choice GPU 220

For push, in my opinion, you will be hard to beat a Sensenich NGQ 2 blade 74" diameter. The next best option would be a Whirlwind Whisper Tip 2 blade 74" diameter.

Re: IO550 CONTINETAL

The answer in my opinion is no the 550 cylinders don't live as "long" as Lycoming cylinders, typically most of the Lycomings we work on will go to TBO on the aircraft, around 2000 hours, but we have see most 550's having cylinder wear in the barrels around 800 - 1000 hours. Seldom will a true IO-550...

Re: 0540 Leaky valve guides

You may also have a cylinder head coming loose from the barrel, this could cause the push rod tubes to come loose and leak oil, the aluminum heads are threaded onto the steel barrels and sometimes the aluminum threads fatigue and "strip" out. If this is the case you will need to replace the cylinder...
