They do this when they're in the nose of a flying airplane. 2.2 hours in paradise this morning, we're on our way to another 120 flying hour year. Thank you for an outstanding product.

Blast from the past. Just a little history to share from 1963.

Usually when you get a letter from the FAA it’s not a good thing. Today we received a good letter. This is now the formal stages of obtaining or FAA CRS. Once completed, we will be the only Repair Station with Franklin Aircraft Engines on our approval list.

"I don't charge by the hour it took me to machine this part, I charge by the years of experience it took me to become efficient and accurate"

Are cases X-rayed for stress cracks .just wandering if that's a requirement.

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

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

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