stuck cam followers on 220

Post by riverhunter »

both cam followers on #1 are stuck, like tap with a hammer stuck. thats the cylinder that my rod broke. the rod came in contact with the followers. anyway, am i going to have to get a new case? this boat is killing me, at some point im going to have to give up.
The VA said I'm crazy, so I bought an airboat.

It depends on a few things , if the follower is the only thing damaged, split the case , remove the followers and inspect the holes for any deformity or cracks. The hole may need to be honed or sleeve repaired.Or just find another crankcase. The followers are not that expensive , and the camshaft should be ground or polished before reinstalled. Deflate all the lifters and make sure that the valve clearances are in spec.There are plenty of 220 parts on SA classifieds at different times.

thanks, so there is a ray of hope. I should have took the whole thing down to begin with and inspected everything. I guess i'm about to get real intimate with my engine. hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Download the manual ,and do some research on your engine, The aircraft version is not a lot different than the GPU version in the overhaul methods.Now is the time for any upgrades or improvements to your engine.

like twister said the gpu's are not that intimidating and the hyd tappets are easy enough to rebuild , anytime you have something major like breaking a rod its a good idea to pull it all the way down and inspect everything IMHO

Look Southern Airboat members to the rescue! This is a great forum and remember there is no stupid questions, only stupid mistakes.I don't think I have met a SA member I don't like. Most are helpful and have resources that are hard to come by without SA.

here are all the ones that are hosted on Southern. If you have any that are missing it would be great to add them. You can send the file to Rick to have it added. I sent in the copy of one for the PE90 GPU.

Rick should have the pe-90 gpu on the list already I sent it to him the same time as the pe-150 manuals fuel injection and some Bendix manuals , if there are any manuals not on there that someone needs I will see if I have them and can send them to Rick to get them on the list
