    High DA engine break in

    Wait until the weather cools off if you can. Iíve done 8 engine/cylinder break-ins and the only one that didnít work out was when the DA was over 6,000 (in August/September). My last break-in (last...

    10 years is the normal lifespan whether by tread wear or weather checking.

    Oil

    Iíve had 5 other lycoming engines in various planes, a few of them that went past TBO, but never had a stuck valve on any of them.

    The O-360 with all the stuck valves tended to run on the warm...

    paypal costs

    Itís better to pay with a credit card rather than PayPal. At least if there is a problem, the credit card company will stand up for you. Once PayPal has their cut of the pie, they donít care if you...

    Super Cub Structural Failure

    Would a chute help if something happened while flying at 100 feet AGL? In all the videos, have you ever seen any of those Flying Cow boys fly high enough for a chute to be effective?

    Spalled Camshaft

    I totally agree with your comments, Gary. I donít think that was the issue with my spalled camshaft, though. I flew that engine 2,250 hours in 8 years. Changed the oil every 30-50 hours & added...

    The spalling is on cylinder #1 intake & exhaust lobes and one of the cylinder #2 lobes (the exhaust, I think). Interestingly, cylinder #1 was the only cylinder that never had any sticking valves.
