Re: Patillo's glass tube

JohntenHave <Jtenhave@...>
 

A lower tech amd less gooey alternative is to wrap the plug with duct
tape, do the layup and excavate the foam with one of those snap off
blade knives fully extended - cut the foam into 1/2 inch squares and
dig it out.

(A bit hard for a fuel tank unless there is a reasonable inspection
panel built into the plan)

I actually made a quick disconnect aux tank using a foam shape then
Bondo and a release agent which was written up long ago.

Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Tandem Wing Spring Fling approaching- Things to sell

WOW!

I can't believe there was no response to my "Items to Sell" Either it did not get to the net or there is no interest! Anyway just in case it was missed I will resend the ads.

Larry

I am going to be coming to the "Spring Fling" but I will be driving as, unfortunately, my Corvair powered Q is not yet done.



I have a few aviation items that I wish to sell and can bring them along if someone has any interest. This is a list of the items.



Continental O-200A engine. This engine ran fine and had lots of power but I had low oil pressure and I decided to ground the engine. This is nearly a complete engine. The MA3-SPA carb I am using on the Corvair. One mag gear is gone and there is no starter. It was a pull start starter and I replaced it with a Sky-Tec starter so I had to cut off the pull start pivot. You will have to replace that part or buy the Sky-Tec starter or the B & C one that fits. The oil pump has been overhauled about 20 hours ago and didn't fix my low oil pressure situation.



Q-200 cowl This part was made from a my mold. This cowl is missing the lower area where the carb intake and carb would go. It is about 3-4 layers of glass and would have to be reinforced.



O-200 swing away engine mount. This engine mount allows the engine to swing out for maintenance. Also included is a removable mag box.



Lycoming style alt mounting bracket and pulleys. This allows a Nipendensu alt to be mounted to the fuel pump pad area of the Continental O-200 engine.



Subaru EJ-22 Engine. This engine is the basic core and I stripped most of the parts off to use it as an engine for the Q-200. I have most of the parts and I have a Don Paraham modified engine harness that allows this engine to run without all the excess wires. This engine has run on the new harness. The engine had over 100,000 miles on it when removed.



Prince P-Tip propeller suitable for the Continental O-200 I think it is a 58" diam X 68" pitch. This prop took my Q-200 to just shy of 200 MPH. Also included is a spinner for the prop.



Fiberglass air intake/ filter/carb heat part that fits the Q-200 Continental.



Various Continental O-200 gaskets



Continental O-200 accessory case.



Continental O-200 intake elbows.



If you have any interest in these parts please call me at 229-247-5297 or E-mail me at koutzl@...



I will not sell these parts at give away prices but something that is fair or if you have something to trade let me know. I am interested in:

Corvair engines, VW props, Mazada RX-7 RX-8 engines.



I don't know now when I will be leaving for the Spring Fling. It may be as much as a week prior to the event so if you are interested you need to get in touch with me early!

Ron,

Look in the files section up on the left and find my folder and then
0200 Engine for picture. I remember many years ago of a failure where
a "scat or skeet" hose failed and collapsed between the carb heat box
and carburetor causing the plane to crash.

I also think a fiberglass tube makes for a smoother flow into the
carb than the standard scat with ridges inside. The process is
simple. Make a foam plug to shape, glass it, let dry then pour gas
through. After drying, sand out the inside. Split ends of tube about
3/8" and install clamps.

Re: C-85 Case

Mike Perry <dmperry1012@...>
 

Hey Mike:

The overhaul manual for C75, C85, C90 & O-200 says in section III:

"...the C75 group differ from the corresponding dash numbered models in the
C85 group only in calibration of the carburetor installed. C90 models
differ from C75 and C85 models in the design of several major parts and
accessories, including the crankshaft, camshaft, crankshaft gear (in -8
models only), carburetor, oil sump, connecting rods, pistons and valve
springs. The O-200, in turn, differs from C Series in the design of its
crankcase, camshaft, crankcase cover, carburetor and oil sump."

There are other differences such as shielded ignition and compression; then
you get into the -8, -12, -14, -16, F and H models.

In general the manual discourages "field conversions" between models;
however, they are talking about use in certified aircraft.

The manual goes into great detail about the differences.

Hope this helps --

Mike Perry

Re: C-85 Case

chris rayner <rayners@...>
 

Mike, I have used an O-200 case to replace the C90-8F case I had which was cracked around the centre main bearing housing. There were obvious differences because the -8F had no mounting for the alternator (or is it starter) at the centre top, at rear. Other differences were because of the different studs placing for the accessory case - I am still using the one for the -8F. It was possible to modify as necessary though.

The other differences I was told about were the cranckcase through bolts - the O-200 is stronger, but compatible - so assuming the C-85 and C-90 are the same, (which I think they are) it should be OK. Be careful about the front of the crankshaft/thrust bearing though. They are not all the same and not interchangeable - some thrust bearings are bronze "C" shaped and some are (I believe) built into the main bearings. So check those items are the same.

PS the cracking around the centre main journal and also wear on the mating areas on the crankcase halves around the journal, is quite common and can lead to crank failure. You can normally see the signs of wear and cracks by looking very carefully.

I hope this helps, but I am not an expert. I am only telling what I found with my engine and by talking to someone who knows...
Regards

Chris Rayner

Re: Q200 sensitivity to rain and bugs

William Swearingen
 

Thank you for that information, it cleared things up a lot.

Paul Buckley <paulbuckley@...> wrote:Bill
Specifically, the original Q2 was fitted with a GU canard which was sensitive to rain and bug splatter on the leading edge. The canard would lose lift when contaminated, requiring more down elevator to compensate, resulting in a heavy stick force and the possibility of running out of elevator authority.
The cure was to fit vortex generators to the top surface of the canard, and there are a lot of Q2's flying safely in this configuration.
When the Revmaster engine was replaced with the 0-200, the canard aerofoil was redesigned to carry the additional weight and to have the necessary increase in elevator authority.
This is the LS-1 canard with the carbon fibre spar (the GU has a 'spar-cap' layup) and the redesign co-incidently solved the rain contamination problem.....the LS-1 does not require vortex generators and has no flight problems.

Is this just a rumor or do the quickie craft have a flight problem
when encountering rain or bugs? If true, what are the symptoms of the
problem. I don't have specifics which is why I am asking. If I was
to buy one I fully intend to fly to various places around the country
and my chances of encountering rain are high and bugs are a certainty.

Re: Fuel filler problem and brake seals.

Larry Severson
 

The way to cure the problem you describe is to install a flush mount
filler in the top of the header with a steel or aluminum (grounded)
2- 2 1/2" tube just below the header opening.
Exactly what I have.

That way you can fill
the header and main at the same time from the same opening. This
makes filling both tanks very fast and you know exactly how much
fuel is in the header and main simply by looking in the hole.
I can tell the header, but I need my fuel gage to tell the main.

I can
fill my tanks in half the time it takes to fill the conventional
setup.
yes

Re: Fuel filler problem and brake seals.

Larry Severson
 

So you must be feeding the engine from the main tank
no

with the header 'overflow' taken from the bottom of the header tank
no, top

, linking the two together.
If you put a standpipe in to act as an overflow, as per plans,
it is.

you would solve the problem, but then you would have to feed from the header,
It does.

But why do you say it is a problem 'as is'......does it matter that the
header can only be full if the main is? Do you have a problem with an aft
C of G?
Under no conditions of fuel or passenger + legal baggage does the plane get
out of CG.

Your system is simple, just what we try to achieve.

The only kicker is the header we have is different than standard! If
you are building and at this stage you may want to look into this
option. I have 5 years and almost 600 hours on this mod and it works
well.
