    I followed that build and install and really enjoyed the solution.

    My oil filter is on the rear as well, and it is a bit of a tight fit getting it out I admit. I expect my engine mount might be a bit longer than yours as well which may account for a bit more wiggle...

    The 8-amp spline version is not very tall and is shallower than a mag. Orange mushroom-looking-thing is the alternator/generator.

    Odd?

    The pics do not add too much to much to the discussion, although I can share a progression of pictures with anyone who is interested in the full process of replacing both the brush/regulator...

    (the pictures were a parts diagram blowout of the Plane Power regulator and rectifier)

    I am experimental so I limited my power requirements and switched over to a B&C spline driven alternator. It...

    Current generation Plane Power voltage regulators with internal crowbar are of questionable quality, and I experienced similar issues. The rebuild kits are readily available, although PP voids the...

    WTB: Experimental 18 Fuselage

    Tempted to scratch build but don't have a fuselage jig so I am checking for any available standard width PA18/21 fuselages for sale? Experimental only, please.

    I fly a J3/11 style Wag fuselage...

    Area is gorgeous if you like the "southwest". (I do)

    Hot hot hot in the summer but good flying other seasons. Hurricane would be my choice if I could afford it.

    Longmont now video cameras installed covering <some> portion of the runway. The footage was recently used against a few big-tired pilots landing in the grass out there, even though in previous years...

    Just to follow up for people searching for this info in the future:

    O235s love having their flywheels ("ring-gear") removed. You can cut up a perfectly good flywheel, or you can machine something...

    Is (was) your vern a part of the oil filter housing, or...? Simple cap replaced the vernatherm body/cap?

    I am tempted to go to the spring and plunger for your exact reasons.

    I will do just that!

    (yup, got that oddball sized hole. noticed it on the end of the crankshaft first as it is difficult to tell by the naked eye on the flywheel itself. .645" vs .675" or so...)
  17. I was going to do just that. The only thing I...

    I was going to do just that. The only thing I will miss without the flywheel/ring gear is the timing marks.
  18. That is exactly what I was going to do if I could...

    That is exactly what I was going to do if I could get my hands on a big enough lathe to turn it down (mine cant chuck up something that large).

    The aluminum plate and machine time is not terrible...

    Thanks for the responses everyone.

    My flywheel is coming off and will machine up a spacer to retain the correct spacing between the cowl and prop. Solidworks model is complete and hopefully will...

    Just for visual reference, here are the through holes (and partial holes) as found on a O235 flywheel. I suspect 320s might be similar, but I don't have one on hand to measure. (.725", 3 full through...
  21. Are Lycomings externally counter-balanced via flywheel?

    Due to a few conflicting local opinions, I wanted to check in with the Cub collective here:

    Are Lycoming four cylinder motors externally counter-balanced via the flywheel? There are holes drilled...

    I don't off hand.

    I control air flow at the back of my oil cooler as well, and it that works just fine. (aluminum plate that I simply clamp on/off as needed)

    The diverter is something I have...

    Sounds perfect? Like a flap of aluminum (opens at top, hinge on bottom) that diverts air down to the cylinder but also allows air above the flap/door to travel through the oil cooler?

    You are sure to be bored by the end of this, but you asked! :)

    I was initially chasing some CHT problems on #4 due to my thin hot air in Colorado and what turned out to be the lack of the "oil...

    Awesome info, Steve. I really appreciate it!

    I have some modifications in mind that may be a bit invasive to the nosebowl and lower cowl. Rather than destroy the currently (flying) setup, I may...
