Split baffle, belt driven alternator? What is this going in? Unique oil fill and pan.

Is all baffle like that for that engine??? If not does it provide better cooling

It looks like a jeweled watch. I can't wait to see the video of the test stand run.

I have a 6A-350 in my plane. What is the average overhaul cost for this motor?

How about that... I'm a "TOP FAN" all of a sudden! 🙂

Yes and those blue accessory case gaskets are purely seductive!

That's just airplane porn, pure and simple..

Is that when it showed up at your place?

Nothing like starting with a shadow!

Holy crap 🙊

Hot oil tank that complete engine

Our engine Dyno room is coming together. I have our exhaust fans ordered to remove the CO and am looking for a high CFM blower to force cooling air into the cylinders. We hope to have this new Airworx process up and going in a few more weeks.Image attachment

We’re are you all located

Very cool! Someday when I'm in the area I want to tour your shop.

Why is CO2 a concern for you?

How do we ensure our measurements are good. This is our tracking sheet of preliminary inspections and the final inspection. The lower portion of the form is for crankcase main bearing bores. The limit is 2.4055-2.4065. This takes time to do right but it’s the only way we do it at Airworx.

Can’t wait to fly behind the 220 once she’s done by you.

WOW 5 digits i guess you not using a dial caliper from harbor freight ..

Certified overhauls? Or experimental only? My 220 is going strong but sooner or later a rebuild will be on the table.

I’ll be in touch, I have a Franklin 220 in my Rallye I’m concerned about.

Why do we do our own case overhauls? This was done by “ Brand X” less than 1 hour of run time ago. See the non touched area that didn’t lap. Customer built his own engine and has had it apart 3 times due to oil pressure issues. He sent us the case to inspect and we found the main bearing bores to be oversized by anywhere from .0005 to .001. We are correcting his case to exacting tolerances to eliminate the problem. It’s not about doing it fast it’s about doing it right!
