    As others have mentioned, I had the same situation on my O-320 last year. I finally found it leaking around the intake gasket at the cylinder head on one cyl. New gasket eliminated the after fire...

    Looking at the Lycoming parts book, the O-320-A2D does have a unique crankcase that is different from all the other O-320s and has it's own unique front bearing configuration and parts. I don't know...

    I've not seen any mention of where the compression is leaking on these "failing" cylinders. When I run a compression test, I am more concerned about what I feel and what I hear than the actual...

    I see a bunch of interesting concepts grouped together on this plane. As for the stabilizer, that could just be for access to change the stabilizer position on the prototype while they figure out...

    Actually, I'm poking fun at them for a year's worth of hype just to produce something that looks like they bought a set of Murphy plans. Hey, but it's from Vans so it must be incredible. Right? ...

    Looks like Van's just bought a set of plans from Murphy and built a Rebel clone. :-P Kind of disappointing if you're looking for design innovation from Van's.

    FWIW, I installed two of these dual port adapters in each of my planes, one of which is 28V. No PMA, but works well and doesn't create any noise or interference. $20 from Aircraft Spruce. ...

    The FAA is running 6 months or more behind on new registrations. But they seem to be automatically issuing extensions for them. I just bought a plane that was purchased by the previous owner in Oct...

    The center main takes a real pounding in these 4 cyl opposed engines. Under the heading of wild speculation with insufficient data to support any of it, my best guess would be that your case was...

    I need to correct myself here. The 200 HP engine with 8.7:1 compression is the angle valve engine. So, with regards to the original post, if it's a parallel valve engine, then it is most likely...

    I have a HO-360-C1A apart for overhaul in my hangar right now and an O-360-A1A in one of my planes sitting next to it, so comparisons are easy to make. The HO-360-C1A originally had a side draft...

    I pulled the plug on work and retired just over 4 years ago. I liked what I was doing and had a customer base that really liked my work, but I could just as easily live without it. I figure my ...

    Good read of a bad experience. Thanks for sharing. I see a lot of good parts for your rebuild being hauled off the mountain. Sorry as heck that your plane got buggered, but you're still here and...

    FWIW, slowing down and throttling back didn't really affect the flutter when my trim cable broke. Pulling in flaps significantly moderated the flutter. I replaced that setup with a Ray Allen trim...

    The Wag Aero plans can be used more as a general guideline and you can build it any way you wish. I bought mine unfinished from an estate after the builder passed away. Most of the odd mods done to...

    That would be great. The local EAA chapter is rebuilding a J-5 and the pdfs would be very helpful.

    Awesome. I recently got involved with oversite of a J-5 rebuild the local EAA chapter is doing. Parts manual, drawings, available STCs, and 337s would be quite valuable to me in the near future. ...

    IMHO, 100LL should have gone away decades ago. We have been hanging on to leaded fuels as a legacy for the higher performance engines. In the mean time, most of us could have been running on...

    I put a wide deck O-320-E2G on my Cubby using the Wag Aero dynafocal mount. I think the guy at Aero Fabricators is dyslexic among other problems. It was built as a reverse image and had >10 of...
