Re: o-360 buring too much fuel?

I think there is a misunderstanding about what is the rear of the engine. I believe they are calling the rear of the engine the part of the engine with the prop on it. If you were flying an airplane that would be the front but I'm assuming you guys are telling him to raise the rear of the motor whic...

Re: CARB/FUEL PUMP QUESTION

Well, I tested the pump pressure and it was 38lbs. No wonder Carb couldn't handle it. I bought a fuel regulator but couldn't use it with this pump for it can't stand over 15lbs so I'm taking pump off in the morning and putting one of my other pumps on with it for I know they are around 4to 6lbs so I...

Re: CARB/FUEL PUMP QUESTION

To my knowledge the engine doesn't have a pump for I am hooked direct to the Carb. This engine belonged to a guy whom owned a marina repair business in ft. Lauderdale(i'm saying this due to seeing Schmitt on here) I waited for them to check, test, and repair anything it needed about a month ago. Jus...

Re: CARB/FUEL PUMP QUESTION

I'm not sure for it came with the boat and the boat had an 0-360. It has three studs in the top of it that mount in rubber and it looks like a small fuel filter and the wires plug into the bottom of it. I don't know whether that tells you anything or not but until I look at it tomarrow that is all I...

CARB/FUEL PUMP QUESTION

I have an 0-320 that Smitt Aviation just rebuilt the carb on so it should be right. My problem is that when I turn the fuel pump on for about 3 seconds or so it starts running fuel out the air cleaner mounting bracket. Airplanes are gravity feed so I know they don't need a pump but I figured that si...

Re: wooden prop location

Thanks guys but I'm confused on the torque. Prop company showed over 200 lbs. For aircraft unless I read wrong but one fellow says 35lbs. My bolts are 7/16 I believe. So get me straight on this and thanks.

wooden prop location

Does it matter what position a wood prop is installed on an engine. Like 10 o'clock position or number one cylinder up and then prop installed at certain position or does it matter. Also , it is an o-320 and I was wondering about the hub bolt torque. I'm thinking around 225 to 275 Ft labs so how clo...

Re: Tachometer Cable

What would it be reading off of? Both sending units look like they are in an oil passage but not sure. I have been looking on line for a picture of the engine showing these units and telling what they do but haven't found one yet.

I am building an airboat with an o-320 Lycoming. I need a tachometer cable and don't know whether automotive tachometer cables will work or what. I also may need a tachometer for the glass on mine is cracked so if anyone knows any good deals on a tachometer I might be interested. I also have to hook...

Re: can airboat be airlifted by a helicopter

I got a stupid question. Why would you get an expensive helicopter to get your airboat out of an area where no airboats are when you could probably get your buddy with his mud buggy to come get you alot cheaper? LOL

If you wanted you could run two batteries and not increasing the weigh much by using a car battery and then use a 300 cranking amp lawn battery for a backup with a little box like used on motorhomes which allows both batterys to charge when needed but separates the two batterys until you need the se...

Re: 0320 not starting in cold weather

Maybe I can be some help on this matter or maybe not, I've been an airplane pilot for many years and the trick to starting aircraft engines hot or cold is by priming them. Airplanes have a primer pump knob on the dash, and you would pump it one to three times depening on the temp, lock it back, pump...
