to continental or not


Recommended Posts

I have a long standing proven aircraft engine.


The main diference between a lycoming and a continental is of cylenders and mount


continental has a bed mount and the lycoming has the other kind. Frankins have a bed mount and have been installed before, althou i really won't be able to rely on thier work.


The continental is designed to be turboed, and thats what i want.


On the other hand, i really really hope your install goes 75% as good as you think it will.


If mine and yours go well then all have two more solid options.


as far as maintenance goes, i can easily rebuild the engine myself, just bought all tools known to mechanics and my buddy, the a&p/is/dar, will walk me through it


On another note, you may need more cooling and i know i do, would you like me to fab a naca scoop you can install in the back seat roof, i am doing 1 - can easily do two


enjoy the build




he he he

maker wood dust and shavings - foam and fiberglass dust and one day a cozy will pop out, enjoying the build
