Re: Electronic ignition parts

I have a pair of Charlie Bass electronic mags for a six cylinder and one for a four cylinder, for sale, if anyone is interested.

An outfit by the name of Pro-Tronics at one time carried parts for them.

Cap - 022-1602
Rotor Kit - 020-1003
Igniter - Module 4 Marine

Pro-Tronics 1-800-827-3758

Re: fastest 0360

Some of the air boaters from Plant City were up here in Citrus Cnty a week or so ago and raced against my old 0-360 built by Jeff Umpress, as well as other boats. It's just a ride boat. It topped out at 86 according to GPs

Re: Lean/rich settings for 180Lycoming

I would run it full rich here in Florida. The lean rich lever for the most part is to lean the engine at altitude where the air is thinner in order to keep the air/fuel ratio at roughly 14.7 to one. Usually when I shut down I go to full lean and when the engine starts to sputter I kill the mags.

Re: Losing RPMs in hot weather

Air at higher temperatures is less dense that air at colder temperature. Fuel injection is fairly sensitive. If your FI was set up when temp was cooler, the fuel to air ratio will increase as temps warm up. lean it out a little and rpm should increase.

Re: Mean little 4 cyl.

pirate the 541 cylinders are a completely different animal. they are same bore and stroke but the flange location is different on the 541 it moves the cylinder head closer to the block creating more compression. however they are not just a bolt on and go. they have to be modified to work right. whe...

Re: Greg McCloud Bendix Mag rebuilder

When I contacted him to ask about a part for a carburetor that might increase fuel flow he told me he would send it, for me to install it, if it made a difference send him the money. If not just send the part back. That's pretty much unheard of these days.

Re: Lycoming piston part numbers

If you'd really done a search, you would have contacted Lycoming yourself or at least learned something about the engine from the internet. I Wasn't beating around the bush.

And your reason for believing this is?....The bore of the O-290 is 4.8750 in and the stroke is 3.875 in...nothing is going to change this unless it's bored out. There are 6 different O-290 certified aircraft engines. The O-290-D /11 /D2 /D2A /D2B / and D2C. Then there's the one you have which is the...

Re: I have a question

John,

I've seen two true 170 HP (O-340) engines . Bore 5.1250 Stroke 4.125

Lew Ingle from Inverness owned both. To the best of my knowledge he still had one in his shop when he passed away. I probably have a copy of a parts catalogue for one around here somewhere if you need one.
