Re: NEED A ONAN ENGINE FOR AN EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT.

Hello Richard!!!

I admire your tenacity!!! Would int not be simpler to just buy/buils an
aluminum smelter. instead?:-)

All fun aside, since "22"hp (some say like the calaber) are prone to crack.
good 20 hp heads have been known to crack much later than 22's; why dont you
tell us what
your experiment is. .... adding metal to the head thickness ... more fins
area ... creating a water jacketed head?

curiously,

Looking for a donor:
Looking for someone who has an old Onan engine which they may never use that is taking up space they may want to see put to good use.
If I can find a 18 to 20 HP Onan I plan to use it in an experimental project in which the cylinder heads will be modified to increase the power and torque by 20 to 30%. After the cylinder head modification a turbo charger will be installed.
The donor will be furnished with data gained from the project. If interested please contact me by E-mail. I will pay for shipping. Richard Glimes

Yes, I've used it. I had an alternator failure and limped home on the battery. Turned the pump off and used the squeeze bulb for half an hour. Nice to know you can keep fuel in the header if the electrics fail. I replace it every couple of years.

Re: Fuel squeeze bulb

Sam Hoskins <shoskins@...>
 

Jim, good topic.

I never had to use it, and after about 1,300 hrs I finally removed it.

HOWEVER:

I have a 6.5 gallon header tank, which gives me better than an hour if the
pump or electrical system craps out.

My GPS has a 15 minute fuel reminder timer, which prompts me to keep on top
of my fuel management.

I have, what I consider, a very good and reliable electrical system, based
on Bob Knuckolls principles. I re-wired everything a couple of years ago.

I vow to keep a very good battery installed.

Hi Guys, I would like to invite all of you to attend this years
Abbotsford Airshow. Please see below for the latest website info and
dates. We are planning to have an Experimental fly-by every morning of the
show. It would be very cool to have a formation of Quickies fly-by for the
crowd. For those of you arriving from the US, there will be no slot times
for arrival and there will be Customs on-site. Abbotsford is quick hop
accross the border, about 10 minutes north of Bellingham or 45 Minutes
north of Seattle by standard Quickie. Attendance is free if you
participate in the fly-by and put your aircraft on static display. Camping
is also allowed on the field. We will have an arrival document posted on
the Website for download in the near future. Please mark the dates on your
calendar and let me know if you plan to attend. Regards Rene Robertson

Re: cockpit-adjustable sparrow strainers

Michael Huffman <mikehuffman@...>
 

Wes,

I read your post about my cockpit-adjustable sparrow strainers while on a business trip, but couldn't respond until I got back home. I've searched through my records for details of the sparrow strainers, but can't come up with any photos or drawings. However, I can describe them to you. Bear in mind that this was over 20 years ago, so my memory may not be 100% accurate.
1.. Let's start with the brackets that attach the sparrow strainers to the elevator--if memory serves, they were the same as called for in the QAC plans, except that the trailing edge was fan-shaped, so as to form an "end plate" for the sparrow strainer airfoil as it moved through its range of adjustment. The only other change would have been a hole for a pivot bolt around which the sparrow strainer airfoil would rotate. I can't remember the total amount of sparrow strainer travel, but it was probably something like 15 or 20 degrees each direction from neutral.

2.. Moving on to the sparrow strainer airfoil, I used the same airfoil section, chord width, and length as called for in the QAC plans, but instead of making it out of balsa wood, I believe I made it from solid phenolic laminate, so it would be more substantial. I'm guessing that I drilled and tapped a hole (probably 1/4" diameter) for the pivot bolt in each end of the airfoil. The chordwise location of the hole is important--it should be located no further aft than about 20% chord, so airloads will tend to decrease its angle of attack rather than increase it. I wanted to avoid a "runaway trim" possibility which might result if the pivot were located further aft. I'm sure I made provisions to safety the pivot bolts to keep them from backing out, but I can't remember how.

I also built an aluminum bellcrank (probably about .062 thick) that was attached to one end of the airfoil section (probably using countersunk self-tapping screws and epoxy). The bellcrank would have had an arm that extended below the airfoil section perhaps 2" or so, perpendicular to the pivot location. A hole would have been drilled in the bellcrank for attachment of the adjustment cable.

3.. My sparrow strainers were operated by plastic-covered Bowden (choke-type) cables. As I remember, I was able to route the cables from the sparrow strainer bellcrank through the bottom surface of the elevator toward the front, then make a turn inboard, so each cable was against the aft side of the elevator torque tube. Where the cables exited at the inboard end, I was able to move the cable far enough aft to miss the inboard elevator bearing--I may have trimmed the outside of the bearing for clearance. From there, the cables were routed in the gap between the canard and the fuel tank, then made a turn into the center console, where they connected to a trim lever similar to a throttle lever. The installation was such that, as the canard was moved through its range of travel, the sparrow strainer airfoil angle would not change--that is important.

If I were to do the same thing today, I would consider using electric servos buried in the bottom surface of the elevator, but it would be important to make allowance for unsymmetric sparrow strainer adjustment caused by one of the servos failing or running away to its limits.
My cockpit-adjustable sparrow strainers worked very well. They were very effective at trimming the pitch attitude without being overly sensitive. I was able to completely remove the pitch trim springs. I dive tested the installation to about 220 mph IAS to assure that it was flutter free. As with any trim installation, it is very important that there be no looseness in the hinge mechanism or the actuating mechanism.

Hope this helps--feel free to contact me further if you need more info.

Mike


Re: Anyone ever build a quickie with main gears similar to the Tri-Q ?

Doug Tenney
 

Honestly I never met the builder, but he was from Glendale, AZ. I
actually bought them from someone on the list. My brother picked them
up from the builder at his hanger in AZ for me. I do know that he
decided to just part his plane out a long time ago after it turned to
mush. from my understanding, he just cut off the wings, took the motor
and avionics and put them in a DF. I do know that the wings them
selves had over 2000hrs in them. So if anyone has a nice airframe with
a motor and avionics, but with a broken Canard, I am looking...

Chris,

I know of at least one that was built like the dragon fly, with
the two main front wheels mid main wing in the tail dragger
configuration. Though he only got about 50 hrs on it and his fuel tank
leaked down the middle of his air frame and turned his airframe to
mush...I own both the wings from that plane...don't really think the
fellow I got them from had to time to get any of the performance
numbers before he took a chainsaw to his plane... :( He was running
the O200 in it, that is about all I know.

I have seen several mentions of regular Quickies which have been
damaged due to hard landings, wondering if anyone has built a tail
wheel version of a Tri-Q without the nose gear?

My thoughts are that the landing gear would be much stronger that way
and less likely to damage the airframe in a hard landing or am I just
imagining it would be stronger that way?

If so, curious what their 65% cruise speed would be with a 75 or 100
HP engine.

Hi Pat,



I have an old O-200. Mid-time, once rebuilt. I have had it immobile for at
least 20 years, but stored indoors in dry climates, so it should be
reasonably serviceable. This said, a rebuild would be prudent, since I have
never run it and/or torn it down to make sure about its condition. You
would need to come get it in western Colorado, or send me a suitable
shipping container. Let me know offline if you are interested:
