Re: Revmaster - Splitting the case

Michael Dunning
 

More progress... Given that my engine (S/N A-2605) was Ordered on April 24 1985, Test Run on June 28 1985, and Delivered on July 9 1985, I'm fairly shocked to see that I have a single oil relief case. Somewhat worried that my engine was built on a used case, given that the dual relief/universal case came out in '71...


Thanks a bunch for taking that picture, Dave. Really helps a ton.

Is it really 3 years Jay, seems like yesterday when you did your first flight.

The weather is fantastic. Not a cloud in the sky or a whiff of a breeze on the ground. This time of year is really stellar here: about 40 degrees F on the ground and altimeter at 30.54, so does not get much fairer than that! Density altitude for takeoff was well below field elevation  of 4750 MSL at around 4000’ DA and no turbulence at all altitudes. 

 

I decided to fly south to a nearby airport, make a few circles around it and return home, so just about 1 hour of flying total. I am celebrating: 3+3 (3 years and 3 days) since my first flight in my Q! Once I got it up and stabilized for cruise at 6200’ MSL, I decided to set the throttle to economy cruise and just leave it there for the whole flight. So I did not touch it for the out-and-back. I had it leaned to best power and was reading close to 5.9 gph for the duration of the flight.

 

I engaged the autopilot to remove the human factors and started taking in the scenery and watching the numbers.  Since the OAT was around 38 F, I decided to completely close my radiator doors to do a controlled test of how much that changed my cruise speed with constant power settings. I was happy to find that it went from 150 mph TAS to 160 TAS with the air doors going from 1/2 closed to fully closed (there is still about ½” gap when fully closed, so the radiators are still “breathing”). My coolant temp went up but stayed in the green at about 180F, and my oil temp was about the same at 185 F. Also, closing the radiator doors increases the pressure and air temp behind the radiators, so cabin heat air temp and flow goes up and makes for a very comfortable cabin.  So, it’s a win-win all around. We all know that cool air is a pilot’s friend, but I keep finding that is especially true for my airplane.

 

The airspeed test also reinforces what Sam H. preaches. Namely, that these are very slick little airplanes and whatever you can do to reduce any drag points will make them even slicker.

 

I was sorry to put it back in the hangar for the next few weeks, but I was happy to have an enjoyable hour in the western Colorado sky. Anyone who is still building, keep at it and get it in the air!

Yeah what Keith said!  I enjoyed your flight report!  Felt like I was right there with you!  You should write for Hollywood!  They could use some good material.

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.

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!
Bruce and H L!
