Varieze lycoming conical mount fabrication

Recommended Posts

I need a lycoming conical mount to put an io 290 on a varieze .  Anyone have info on a fabricator that can make one for me .

I see that this guy makes mounts   https://irondesigniowa.com/aviation/patrol/mounts/

You might ask the cozygirrrls (www.cozygirrls.com) but they seem pretty busy.  Does your O-290 use a dynafocal ring?  You can buy the ring from Aircraft Spruce.  I made my own mount for an EZ.  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/18661-kents-long-ez-project/     I  backed the engine+ring up to the firewall in the correct position and fitted the tubes to the airplane.  If you can weld well enough to tack one up, a local welder could finish it.  You might find it warps a bit but you can probably work that out with a little heating before you paint it.  A plywood jig to simulate the firewall will work too.

Thanks for the info . I have a dynafocal mount for an 0235  that came with the VariEze project but 0290 I found has the old conical mount ( flat plane ) .  I need the 029 conical mount for the VariEze
