Yes Bruce .......which is what for yours please, and where do you take your oil temp from ? Rear plate ? Do you have the Spin on filter mod, does it have cooling fins or a separate cooler,

Stupid question = Is your cowling too hot to touch after you have been taxiing for 10 minutes ?

Thanks

Jay, 
You’re not to far from me for sure. Bob built a nice plane.  He also helped me out a bunch over the last covid year.  I’ve learned a lot but can always learn more 
Hope to see you there in Enid

Flight Report and 4 into 4 Exhaust pipe update

Mike Dwyer
 

I built my 4 into 4 exhaust pipes out of auto exhaust pipe material and flanges from AS.  After 420 hours and 16 years the #2 pipe developed a crack near the flange.  I've updated my web page on the pipes with the pictures and some info.  

After I got the repaired pipe back from the welder ($20) I installed the pipe.  The 4 into 4 system made this really easy.  I had to take off one intake tube and then could get to the exhaust nuts.  Probably took 20 min to put back together.  I then cleaned up the brakes and replaced the wheel bearings on the left side.  The wheel bearings on the right side were perfect but the left had a damaged permanent seal so wouldn't have lasted much longer.  

I went for a little check out flight.  90F and 80% humidity.  I saw on the radar a little green precip to the North so planned to just circle around that.  After takeoff I climbed fast to 2500'.  Stayed low just enough to stay out of the Tampa Class B.  Then headed North to do a little ham radio.  I could see some light precip on the ADS-B but out the window it looked great.  Usually if there is rain here in FL you see this grey shaft of rain.  Oops, I'm in the rain.  It was just this light stuff and not interfering with visibility at all.   I quickly checked my carb temp and saw around 45F then made a left turn to the South.  Well darn, I can't really do ham radio stuff to the south.  Too easy to bust the Class B that direction and the rain might just move over the airport.  Oh well, 30 minute flight so I decided to call back in for a  landing and call it a day.  Oh, on taxi out the brakes were pulling to the right.  I have the single handle that applies pressure to both brakes.  After landing, the brakes were back to being even, nice.  

Plane was pretty dirty and the rain did a good job cleaning it!

 The scrap workers outside the office would have loved you! All those cardboard boxes, nylon strapping, and styrofoam packing inserts.

 In truth much of this is stuff recycleable. The expanded styrofoam does have scrap value. I built my garage solo in Carson New Mexico from Rastra..which is nothing more than a formed block made from Portland slurry mixed with beaded styrofoam pellets and allowed to green set in a casting tool.  

 Makes an excellent building too! The garage/shop temps stayed above freezing overnite even without added heating to well below zero. I installed pex radiant tubing in the slab which collected heat via solar collector in the day..but because the home was 100% off grid energy demand was designed to be low. Many homes there used papercrete in construction which is cardboard or other paper slurried in and blown on similar to stucco.  

 Here's the link to the fellow that bought my place. He served in Afganistan.

You should give it a try, just for an experiment.
Crowd frenzy/behavior has been studied a lot, and exploited often at auctions.

About 10 years ago, when Harbor Freight prices were amazingly low, I had an idea to drop ship their heavy steel items right to US scrap yards, and make a profit.  I weighted H-frame presses, engine hoists, and big socket sets.  It would have worked and I never would have placed a finger on any of it.
Great idea right :) ;).

 As much as I wanted to see your Dragonfly I respect that your not pushing beyond limits to make the trip. I am going to attend on Friday morning, but my Wife and I have irons in the fire she needs assist on so I will return on Friday afternoon.

 I have a suppliment idea to my fantastic Social Security and Boeing pension I'd like to run past you guys. (not seriously but it DID cross my mind yesterday)  

  We go to a monthly auction first Saturday of each month East of Tulsa where there is usually a lot of construction material available. Sometimes new..sometimes just a pile of hacks. It's an auction. Been going to them most of my life.  

 To finish out my 40X25 hangar & shop I need OSB sheets. So the prices here in Oklahoma lately have been about $16 and sometimes as low as $12..for example at Lowes. 

 Auctioneer gets the crowd up to $12 in a hurry for a stack of 13 sheets..and they are decent and usable but NOT store perfect either.  Surprised me but then the real shocker arrived.

..final sale was at $17.50 per sheet!!  The guy was genuinely smiling as if he just hit the Powerball lotto, or maybe he "just be hatin" on them Benjamins in his bank account?? 

 Same thing on several other items.  I'm convinced it is something in the water they are drinking over there in Tulsa and points East of the city. 

 Maybe next month I'll just buy a dozen pallets of OSB, beat them up a bit and profit $5.50 a sheet just by taking them to the auction. Sounds like a good plan but as we all know..best plans of mice and men..

 It's a strange world being a retired aerospace geezer.  See you in a couple of weeks.

Doh!  I forgot to mention the oil temp is once again back to normal!
Bruce


On Sep 4, 2021, at 7:42 PM, Bruce Crain <jcrain2@...> wrote:


Say Jay I flew yesterday morning also!  I have been observing my oil temps increasing on my Continental 0200 over a long period of time.  When I first put an Electronic Ignition on with a mag remaining the rpms were lower with respect to the mag when doing a preflight check.  I have been noticing that the mag check lately was increasing the rpms when checked.  Over time the points wear down and increase the timing on a mag.  (there's that moving parts thing with magnetos).
 
So when I pulled the engine I checked the oil screen and found only a very minimal amount of what looked like paper chewed up into small particles.  No metal showing.  I had cleaned it out only a short number of hours ago and knew that it most likely wasn't the culprit.  I then checked the mag timing an it was showing about 27 btdc.  So I put the electronic mag checker on it and retimed it to 24 btdc.
 
After remounting the engine I ran it up an had quite a mag drop (200+) with a slight vibration even at 1700 rpm.  I had just cleaned the plugs so I figured it was just oil in the bottom of a cylinder or a speck in the electrode of the spark plugs or a bit of anti seize on an electrode. 
 
After flying the TriQ 200 I checked the mag and it was smooth and only slowed rpms 100 to 150.  That is fairly normal with electronic ignition and mag combination.
 
Oh, the flight was a little choppy but there was a cloud east of WDG and I flew under it.  It was nice and cool so I flew around a while with flight following watching me.  Flight following alerted me that a Huey helicopter was on my flight path and was inbound for WDG.  When I "tally hoed" I followed the Huey inbound for a while and then peeled off for some more cool air.  A short time later I headed back to WDG and had a great landing!  All was wonderful!  It's a sweet little bird that is way fun to fly!
Get em done!  You'll be glad you did!
