Default Engine installation

well, we made a table that holds the engine in the proper position, attached the headers, intake manifold, alternator, starter, BU alternator

and now to both hang the engine and the turbos without the mounts of eithor interfering.

That be the project at hand, three big tubes to each turbo, lots of tube for the mount, all basically in the same location.

can't wait to get er done, went to chrome moly warehouse, got the plate and tube for the turbo mounting, went to the mild steel warehouse and picked the same tube in mild steel for 1/10 the price to prototype the mounting.

another fine mess i've got myself into, heh heh heh

Finally, the engine mount is tacked and ready for almost final welding.

The almost final is after the turbos are plumbed we can then add a few gussets.

Had two structural engineers review it, GOOD TO GO.

Engine Tuner is on board, ECU and all needed attachments for spark, fuel and turbo control are being purchased.

Tomorrow the local performance plumbing supplier is coming to hanger to look at install, much plumbing is needed from 3/4 NPS,national pipe straight, to 1/8 npt for injector boss's.

Great to have assembled a team to do it all top notch.

Engine harness buddy is comin over, once ECU guy delivers parts for harness. Going to try to find replacement pins that are gold plated for all low voltage stuff.

funny lookin at upside down engine on upside down engine on upside down plane every night

Well, met with 2 groups of ecu experts tonight, great meeting around the upside down continental.

Result

Oil pan drainage for the turbos is not an option, oil in sump could foul draining, scavenge pump is way to go. Have to turn off boost automatically if pump fails, another job for ECU.

post shut down oil pump not needed, i'll sensor turbo to insure proper temp before shut down to make sure of zero coking of oil in bearing, if it becomes a problem during flight testing i'll know about it and install a post shut down pump but the fewer fittings in the oil system the better.

The fuel injectors i have are good to go.

If i ever try for a altitude record try i'll have to replumb the fuel system with SS tube, other materials commonly available will not take the temps at high altitude. -70F or so

The ECU guy is great, he is making the change to aviation flawlessly. Understands that

A. there is no "side of the road" to pull over to in case of a problem.

B. Weight is an issue

C. Easy long term replacement of parts is important.

This is not so with 1000 hp dragsters and racing boats.

The more I go over system requirements with him, the more I'm glad he floated to the top of those available locally.
