Re: Selling my Q200 stuff

Mike Dwyer
 

Hi All,
I'm nearing the end of selling off my Q related stuff.  It's been amazing so far that the Q group has really been great at picking up some of the items.
This week I added spark plugs with 5 hours on them, a cool transponder antenna, and an ADS-B out Stratus transponder.   
Next week I may have some tools, old cylinders, and I got some new tires somewhere...
Check out the web site below:

If your interested in anything, don't reply to this list!  We don't need to let 500 people in on it!  My email and phone are on that site so use that!
My Email is q2pilot@...

FYI, the AeroTech starter clutch that wrecked my engine...  We worked out a deal where he bought the engine. 

Fly Safe!

To add another note, I sent my engine back to Revmaster for the rebuild I wrote about earlier.

Hi Guys,
Pretty soon I will be getting my Revmaster rebuilt. As far as I know the engine is stock as in the original kit.
I'm looking for advise on the minimal upgrades recommended and things to pay attention to during the rebuild.
I'll listen to anything you have to say.
I will be having this done by a local engine builder.

Cheers,

Mike, if I may:
1) How many air-cooled VWs has your local shop built?
2a) How familiar are you with aircraft engines? and...
2b) aircraft-converted VWs in particular?

I ask since most folks seem to either ship the engine to Revmaster or do the work themselves and tasking work out adds one extra wrinkle. There is an interesting mix of VW and Revmaster specialty tools involved depending on how deep into the engine you want to go.

I've spent the last three (enjoyable) years answering your question for myself and the last six (relaxing) months gathering parts and tearing mine down...so I will try to share what I know as best I can. Just search my name on here and look at my build log: https://eaabuilderslog.org/?blproject&proj=7rri10ikZ&cat=all

Good luck,
Michael

Re: Revmaster rebuild

britmcman99
 

Following some sage advise from a very successful Q-2 driver I went with 94mm barrels and pistons, And because at the time I didn’t want to deal with the lower spark plug access I bought Great Plains cylinder heads (I think the latest version of Revmaster heads have a new design where you don’t need to remove the valve train to get the lower plugs out), buy the aluminum crank case. It is 7 pounds heavier than the magnesium case but will not be prone to cracking so would definitely recommend that. The addition of the 94mm barrels included a volumetric compression equalization and adjustment that inky case may have actually lowered the compression  a tad (referred to CC the cylinder heads). You would get around 2163cc displacement and even with the 94 mm pistons, the lower compression and aluminum crankcase you might expect the engine to be more robust.

When I convert that to Cdn $ add shipping on to that I'll be close to 9K.
I'll have it done locally
I'm pretty sure the engine is the lower hp
It looks to have the original heads on it

The 2300 brand new cost about $9,800 it’s $4,300 more but is new. All depend how much you Plan to expend! I think $5,500 it’s not to bad price!
What HP have yours?

Unfortunately there is not, nor is there even agreement on the "best" way to accomplish each mod. Here's some things to get you started though. These will at least let you "learn the lingo" and the group here will be more than happy to answer your specific questions as you tackle your various restoration tasks.

Free Plans from Quickheads.com: (hopefully the copy/pasted links work)

Below is a collection of FREE PLANS collected from around the internet. Some of them are incomplete and poor quality, and should be used for information only. But hey, you get what you PAY FOR! Laughing

And here are some more:
