Live to Fly
Is that the 1 from your yak? wouldn't a be a warrenty job from the factory?Congrats on a successful maiden Bill. Looks like next year is going to be a good one in IMAC, Especially now that a few are revved up after the Nationals.
I know where there is an MVVS 116 that became available REAL cheap yesterday - Flying along, the engine made a loud Bang and stopped. When it was landed, the prop was seized solid - and I mean SOLID. Took the jugs off last night to have a look and the plastic filler on the front crank web had come loose. Unfortunately it jammed between the crank and the crankcase and broke the crankcase and the skirt area of one cylinder. This engine came "especially built" from the factory a few months ago and has only got just under 20 hours on it since it was sent to us. (The only modification on it is that I had changed the wrist pin rollers to bronze bushes due to another issue). I don't think these can handle hot weather.
Just needs a new Crankcase, New Cylinder (might as well make it a pair), New piston (make that a pair too), New rings, and some Gaskets and it wil be just like new again - It won't be getting fixed.
Would it be worth fixing to use in the pitts? or too expensive?
