Re: 3A closed again

What pisses me off is we had no advanced warning of this. We just hauled out a load of siding to install on camp this coming weekend but now we got shut down on a Tuesday and have all this material sitting out there not in a position for long term storage. Tried applying for a permit to go get every...

Re: 3A-3B closed ?

They didn't close it because of the high water. It was closed due to the amount of deer on the 3a north/holeylands levy.

Re: what oil filter for a 160 w/ simese mag

You could try using the correct filter for your motor and avoid these issues. And for the fram filter I wouldn't put one on a go cart much less an aircraft motor.

Re: GO-435 Pistons in O-435

How do you figure angle valve and straight valve pistons will be the same compression if you interchange then? They have totally different combustion chambers between the two.

Re: 3 blade on a ...

I have been running a 3 blade sensenich h series on my o320 and love it. The snap may take a split second longer but i love the push it has, esp mid range cruise. I wasn't sure how how it was gonna work when I tried it but if I wasn't happy with it that prop would not be still on it.

Re: E-VAC SYSTEM ON UR AIRCRAFT ENGINE ???????

From what I understand if you have mufflers after the evac fitting it cancels the negative pressure created due to backpressure of the muffler. You would have to put the tie in fitting after the muffler to have any effect.

Re: My Cont 220 GPU Getting Hot... Rookie needs help!

I have seen people put teflon tape on temp sending units and end up with all kind of weird temp readings. Most use the block for ground so you can"t use any king of tape or thread sealants on them.

Re: Lifter help

While building my brothers h2ad I bought a ford lifter and compared it to the lycoming one. I wasn't sure how the bleed down rate would be with how much smaller the relief holes in the ford lifter with the 50w av oil so we sent all of his to D&S cams along with his cam for surfacing and a regrind.

Re: Broke the oil filter adapter at temp sender....

I tap the adapter to 5/8-18 and run a crush washer. They are very close to the same size but the pipe thread will split the housing easily.

I had pretty much the same issue when I built my new boat. On acceleration it would hesitate and would shut off at low throttle cruise, would have to pump the throttle to recover. Going through the carb I found the throttle shaft packing o-rings worn out and pulling a vacuum in the fuel chamber. Rep...
