I just went to my hangar and took this picture. I hope it will give you some answers.... Hi Kevin. You guys were such a big help. People want to see the pictures of the Q2 in the truck and you're in em.

Yes. No need to remove the prop hub, just the flywheel. I'll send you a picture of the crankshaft as it was removed from the case,,,,minus one connecting rod.

Do you have any pictures you could share? Does the aluminum "nose bearing" come off with the hub and crank as one assembly when you do this?

Hot Wings:
Just ordered that yesterday; Glad to know I'm on the right track.

Thanks for the reminder to go (re)read that article. The instructions in that issue are actually what inspired me to order the special hub removal bolt from Revmaster last year.

Re: Revmaster - Splitting the case

Patrick Panzera
 

Please keep in mind that the prop hub bolt is threaded opposite of all other VW engines. In other words, you twist the bolt to the right (clockwise) to loosen it.

Then the inside of the hub is threaded for a different bolt that's threaded in that will bottom out against the end of the crank to press the hub off the crank. If you try to use a pulley puller on the flange, you'll just bend it beyond repair.

This may help:

Remove the flywheel and prop hub bolts before splitting the case.  Look up VW Flywheel Lock
It is nothing more than a little device that bolts on the upper case bolts and engages the starter ring gear.  Google doesn't show a pic of the really simple one - little more than a 2 inch 1/4 water pipe with a 1/8 inch tooth welded on one end.  I've removed and installed hundreds of flywheels over the years with this very basic tool...just flop the tooth over depending on if you are tightening or loosening.

I just split the case on my Revmaster, no need to remove the prop hub. I ground down a socket to get a thin walled socket to remove the flywheel bolts. I don't know what the seal sizes are....best to call Revmaster for that.  Dave D

Anyone here have experience tearing down a Revmaster? I've gotten down to the flywheel and can't tell if there is anything special I need to do with the front bearing before I continue on; the manual isn't helping much. Anyone have part numbers for the front and rear seals?

My main concern is getting any kind of leverage on the prop/flywheel bolts once the crankshaft comes out.

Hi Mike (Dwyer),

Can you offer some suggestions on the MA3SPA, I have to set mine up…
I don’t have it to hand but I seem to recall the supplied instructions were a little light.

Thanks, Tim

I just finished watching Peter Mezsaros Zoom meeting! Wonderful airplane and information! Great job Peter!

Sorry, Honey Lamb and I were on vacation in Branson and missed the actual. Seems I am always in a prison meeting or on vacation when the zoom meetings are held but thanks to Sammy and Paul I am now caught up!

Beautiful day to day altho it started out at 60F which is 10 degrees below 0 for a Floridian...

So I had done some carb work, changed the oil, and new spark plugs and wanted to test em out.  Pre-heated the engine to 70F.  It starts much easier when pre-heated.  Got to RWY 36 just in front of a 737 so called ready and beat him in the air.  Don't want to see what the turbulence is like behind that thing.  Had to level off a bit to keep under the 1200' Class B ring and I see my speed went a bit high (194 mph) before I cleared the ring.

 

Flew for about an hour, talking on the ham radio.  I slow down to minimum speed to save fuel and just loitered at 5500' about 150 mph.  It was 15% humidity up there!  Wow.  Then I headed back home.  The airport was pretty quiet so I just left my speed up (167 MPH on Final).  I expected the tower to say something but they are used to C130's, 737's and biz jets so they didn't seem to care.  Squeaker landing and uneventful taxi back.

30 years back the speed limit was 180 mph at a controlled airport.  I buzzed through at 190+, then landed at KSPG and told the hangar bunch that I had just busted the speed limit over KPIE.  That started a huge argument and forced the old timers to look up the regs.  I think it's 200 knots now.  I think they raised it to upset me.

So, a few questions.  

Are you using auto gas cause that stuff seems to fowl plugs faster (black) than avgas.
Are the plugs black?
When you get back from a flight and your idling at say 800 RPM.  Slowly pull the mixture while watching the RPM.  If you got a 40 or so rise or more your probably rich at idle.
When you get back from a flight do you do a mag test?  
Have you ever properly set the idle mixture screw?

After fighting this for a long time I consider myself an expert on MA3SPA carbs!  LOL.

I just switched to Tempest UREM37BY plugs cause they are short and don't hit the cowl and they are supposed to fowl less.  So far so good.

Plugs, have you cleaned them recently?  Measure from the center electrode to where the plug wire hits the center.  You should see less than 1000 ohms.  On Champions they have a resistor block inside with a couple of springs that rust and make for a bad contact.  Cracked ceramic?  Old wires?  Old mags?

Re: Finally

 They found out about pitch sensitivity early in the program!  I can't imagine trying a stunt like learning to fly without instructors other
than seagulls. Both those fellas had bravery beyond. My guess is Jonathon Livingston must have been on the beach whispering in
their ear that December day. 

 Once I am back on the homestead first thing I want to look into is the kit serial number on the paperwork. I know the original buyer
 was in Henderson Nevada..and the invoices added up to a number that surprised me knowing what my paychecks were in 1982 at Beech.

 The tours have me curious to see where in the pecking order ol Frank is going to end up.

Beautiful day to day altho it started out at 60F which is 10 degrees below 0 for a Floridian...

So I had done some carb work, changed the oil, and new spark plugs and wanted to test em out.  Pre-heated the engine to 70F.  It starts much easier when pre-heated.  Got to RWY 36 just in front of a 737 so called ready and beat him in the air.  Don't want to see what the turbulence is like behind that thing.  Had to level off a bit to keep under the 1200' Class B ring and I see my speed went a bit high (194 mph) before I cleared the ring.

 

Flew for about an hour, talking on the ham radio.  I slow down to minimum speed to save fuel and just loitered at 5500' about 150 mph.  It was 15% humidity up there!  Wow.  Then I headed back home.  The airport was pretty quiet so I just left my speed up (167 MPH on Final).  I expected the tower to say something but they are used to C130's, 737's and biz jets so they didn't seem to care.  Squeaker landing and uneventful taxi back.

30 years back the speed limit was 180 mph at a controlled airport.  I buzzed through at 190+, then landed at KSPG and told the hangar bunch that I had just busted the speed limit over KPIE.  That started a huge argument and forced the old timers to look up the regs.  I think it's 200 knots now.  I think they raised it to upset me.
