    Citing Valve Damage, UND Drops Unleaded Fuel And Returns To 100LL

    I do understand. I still work for the entity that owned Octel before we sold it in 1997. I said whether it makes a difference or not, I do not know. And neither do you. It’s not a massive change volume or mass-wise, but it doesn’t have to be to make a big performance change. That’s just...

    Citing Valve Damage, UND Drops Unleaded Fuel And Returns To 100LL

    Dear Pinecone: Each of the other components increase as a percentage when you take one of them out. I’m too tired from work to explain it, but happy to do so later. Whether or not the changes make a significant difference to the valve issue, I do not know. Best Regards, 455 Buick

    Citing Valve Damage, UND Drops Unleaded Fuel And Returns To 100LL

    No sir. Different percent and mass per volume if you pull the TEL out.

    Citing Valve Damage, UND Drops Unleaded Fuel And Returns To 100LL

    Are you saying light detonation can possibly cause valve seat sinking? Without curling a top half rod bearing or breaking rings, or other havoc first? I never hear or read about that as an effect of detonation, but sounds like an interesting theory. Upon quick search, there are about 2 dozen...

    Citing Valve Damage, UND Drops Unleaded Fuel And Returns To 100LL

    I’ll suggest that the UND test was n=1, statistically speaking. It’s not statistically valid, unless the engine makes, models, age of cylinder head manufacture (materials, suppliers, assembly) are varied. UND likely doesn’t have cylinder heads on their engines that are older or of different...

    Bakin' Bacon

    I’ve done bacon on the grill a few times. If the grill is full of grease, it’ll be prone to major flare ups that make this infeasible. Otherwise it’s an easy mess-free way to do it. I lay out strips, not whole.

    Rotax vs. traditional (engine shutdown)

    I wonder the difference in -200 vs -550 cubic inch engines due to engine rotating assembly inertia too. Massive rods, pistons, and crank vs teeny.

    Fuel Injector Line Clips

    Whatcha flying with that IO-470F? Guessing it’s cool (though one would say all airplanes are cool). How about a picture…please?

    April solar eclipse

    That was very cool. Landed at KSIV about an hour before totality. Half dozen planes there. Pretty chill. No biggie from an air traffic standpoint (no flight following). I was worried about having to do a flyover to check for full ramp or getting told on CTAF to stay away.

    Slow Cooked Beef

    So for slow cooker, if no sous vide or smoker, crock pot is just fine. You could do the same on the stove with low simmer. You’re basically braising the meat. Good cuts for braising are those with a tough reputation, stuff that has tendons or a lot of connective tissue. Go slow for 5-8...

    April solar eclipse

    Was thinking of a flight to KSIV, but NOTAMS look like purposeful discouragement? No fuel 4/6-4/8, and only 1 month of taxiway & apron construction and construction adjacent to runway. What kind of construction only takes a month? I’ll call in the morning and see what they say. Figured a...

    My sweet honey at C81

    Questions for @Racerx or others familiar with bees, as a potential new beekeeper in the future; -If you split hives to prevent overcrowding, don’t you eventually run out of time and money because you’re doubling your hives every so often? -Assuming you keep hive height reasonable adding only a...

    Fixed gear temporarily for insurance purposes?

    This makes me wonder is you could get a policy excluding gear-ups. Not that the bank would approve, but if the owner wanted at least some insurance…

    My sweet honey at C81

    Thanks for the update. I’m deep into reading and learning. Might join a club. I’ve been looking into downsides of the Layens style hives. I’ll probably wait until next spring to start just because I feel like I’m behind the curve.
