Progress so far

To date we have four volunteers - I'd like to have a few more in reserve, just in case. (Do you mean to tell me that there are only FOUR aviators in the UK interested in poking around the London...

Echo Mike and G-AWAW need your help.

Anyone who went to a certain well-known and much discussed north-east Florida JAA school will remember that I did the ground school lectures.

Tip of the hat to IO540!

Isn't that the case with all aircraft, in different degrees.
Look at your nearest 1970 Cessna 150.

An Annual might cost 5k.

I really do feel badly for the people who bought Thielert powered airplanes and have been left holding a very expensive and mostly empty bag.

The economics are truly daunting - say the DA-42...

Thielert - bring out your dead . . .

If I wanted to buy a complete dead Thielert firewall forward package, and it doesn't have to be airworthy, what do you think it might cost? I'd figure since it isn't airworthy and isn't economical to...

$12,000 annual?

I find it difficult to comprehend that an annual inspection on a C150 would cost GBP 8000 unless someone is getting really, really screwed, big time.

We've had a fleet of as many as 15 of these...

DIY or not

I agree 100% that the work is within the realm of possibility for some handy friends - but please consider this - falls are very common in construction work. If someone falls ten feet onto a concrete...

Packard V-12

Most automotive engines of that era were flatheads - valves arranged exactly like your lawn mower. OHV engines didn't really start to appear in US cars until the early to mid 50s.

O-200

Don't know much specifically about the Socata, but I can tell you a bit about the O-200 Continental.

O-200 oil burn and leaks

I'd look at some other things before blaming "a bearing".

First - "normal" oil consumption on an O-200 is about a liter every 15 hours or so, some a bit more, some a bit less.

Second - if you...

Rather right than "right now"

Unflown engines - use a borescope, check for cylinder wall corrosion. If the cam is on top (O-320/360 Lycoming), cam wear (rust, pitting, spalling) can be a problem in seldom-flown engines. For some...
