Installed the trottle and prop linkage at the quadrant.
Made the bracket for the trottle cable at the engine. Tonight I put it all together.
Yesterday we swapped out a couple of bad starter solenoids. That solved the problem of my starter spinning up without being triggered. We also installed the oil pressure hose from the engine to the sensor.
Installed the oil cooler and ducting, still need to order the oil lines. Also installed the bus manager and did some other wiring.
Matt and Consti helped install the two bent whip com antennas. I also installed the second battery box and the upper portion of the exhaust.
Today I picked up my seats from Abby at Flightline Interiors. I also dropped off my canopy frame for powder coating. When I got home I installed the engine mount. Thanks to Consti for helping me torque the bolts!
Last week my father and I traveled to San Antonio to visit the Titan factory. We stayed overnight in Kansas with Carin Carin and Daveed and had a delicious meal. We finished the drive to Texas where we stayed with Jeff and Val for a few days. Jeff and my dad accompanied me to watch the engine being built. A huge thanks to my dad for coming along on this crazy adventure and to Carin, Daveed, Jeff, and Val for their wonderful hospitality!
Bobby Looper did the build of this awesome engine. It’s a counterwighted crankshaft IOX370. I went with the EFII system for fuel injection and ignition. The engine is rated at 200 HP, but this one put out 207 HP on the dyno.
