Re: New engine

Hi Sven, I am currently away from home so using a horrible iPhone to type...slow & tedious, plus I don’t have access to all the photos. Anyway: Oil systems: Oil Feed: I have found a supplier for a front cover for the oil pump, which is actually designed for an external oil feed to a cooler, but,...

Re: Zentih carburettor - service or replace?

Hi Jim,

I can service the Zenith, if gaskets are not available I can make them.

I may also have a Stromberg with the correct jets for sale if you are interested.

Best wishes,

Neil

Re: Leburg tacho signal

My guess would be a square wave at about 5v.

If you move your engine forward you are going to change the CofG..........

Re: Air Filter?

Hi Malcolm, You say that the oil was black.....after 7 hrs that would suggest overheating of the oil. Does it smell burnt? Do you have oil temp? If so what was it before seizure? Did the engine seize in flight or on the ground? What was the oil temp' before seizure? What was the oil pressure before ...

Re: Leburg

Re: Leburg

Hi Malcolm, The fact that the failure has been progressive would suggest that the fault is not down to a supply/earth problem. Can you remove the Leburg Module easily? If so I recommend you remove it, remove the cover and check that the i/c (integrated circuit) has not come out of its holder, or tha...
