E6 Egg Subaru engine propeller trim balance N707SM
Michael OBrien doing a full power run on his Eggenfellner E6 engine at KDWA for propeller trim balancing prior to 1st flight... Subaru based 6 cylinder engine is turning a Quinti/Sensenich 4 blade hollow composite c/speed electric prop..
This sube engine runs so smooth its unreal!
Geared Drives 200Z PSRU For Subaru
At the time this was the worlds only Subaru on an RV9A using a hydraulic
constant speed prop. This prototype unit has all of the same features of
the original Geared Drives PSRU including its own oil reservoir, oil pump
and filtration system, drive port for hydraulic prop governor, and flywheel
and centrifugal clutch assembly. This airplane with the P2 prototype Geared
Drives PSRU can be seen at Sun n Fun Air Show, Lakeland, FL, April 21-26,
2009. Look for the Geared Drives booth N52 for directions the aircraft
Experimental Aircraft Prop Hub Turned From 914 Porsche, Type 4 VW Engine Flywheel Part 1
Here is the first video of how we took the forged flywheel and made part of
our prop hub for my experimental aircraft project. It is going to go on a
Porsche 914 type 4 VW engine. this is only half of the prop hub assembly
as another aluminum part is needed to allow for the centering of the prop
on the hub. that video is yet to come.

Glasair 1RG Fly By 260 MPH - Subaru EG33 Motor
Father-In-Law's first flight in a Glasair aircraft powered by a Subaru
Alcyone SVX EG33 six cylinder 202 cubic inch engine. He had never before
experienced any "G Loads" and handled them well. Watch us make a high speed
Eggenfellner Subaru First Start
First start of my Eggenfellner Subaru E-6 engine. This is a converted
automobile engine for aircraft use and is capable of producing 200 hp.
Instead of burning just expensive aviation fuel, I will be able to use the
cheaper 92 Octane auto fuel, or as necessary, aviation gas. Repairs and
maintenance of this engine will also be cheaper then a typical aircraft
engine. Being water cooled, it will have far less vibration and will be
quieter then the typical air cooled aircraft engine. It will eventually be
attached to my RV-8A that I am currently building.
Boeing 777 Engine run in the snow
Thought this might be quite entertaining if you're that way inclined. This
is at BA's maintenance base at Heathrow.
After routine maintenance an engine ground run is carried out to check for
leaks from serviced components. A run is necessary to build up the required
fuel and oil pressure in the various systems. At 80% N1 speed (the fan
rotor is N1) the fuel pressure is over 550psi.
Normally only one engine is brought up to 80% at a time, the other at 60%
for balancing. Due to the conditions, the engineer running the test decided
it would be better that if the aircraft started to slide, it would do so in
a straight line. That's also the reason there are no intake guards on this

2nd Propeller Test Citroën 2CV engine for ultralight airplane
CHANGES MADE SINCE LAST TEST:
-I've fitted Citroën VISA cylinders and heads: the engine cases had to be
machined in order to make those fit, machining was done by WWW.VGS2CV.BE.
These other cylinders are aluminum (lightweight) and nicasil coated
(improved reliability). Also they offer a displacement of 650cc and a
higher compression ratio of 9.5:1
-Valves are lapped, ports are cleaned, pistons are as good as new, new
gaskets everywhere, ...
-Instead of the twin bike carbs, I went back to a single carburettor, a
WEBER 32/34. This one works great when the engine has to perform, but the
idle is not as it should be yet. I might have to replace the idle jets.
Top rpm achieved this day was 3120 rpm, which is enough for the future
aircraft to take off :)
After the first tests, my home-rebuilt 1970's Citroën 2CV car engine
lacked a bit of power since the prop demands 25 hp at low rpm. I've
stripped it down to the bare essentials, it now weighs about 36 kgs/80
pounds. The Propeller (48x17) was sent to me by the Sratt 103 designer
Bernard Geffray, in order to test my engine before buying my own propeller.
For this test, I've fixed the engine on the back of my homemade gokart.
This also allows to do dynamic tests.
Feel free to give advice!
Prop sounding PERFECTION!!!

When I think of a propeller dirven plane this is the sound that comes to
mind! This is a 1943 Twin Beechcraft 18 flown by Matt Younkin at the 2013
Sun N Fun Flyin. I am pretty sure he saw me during his performance and
gave me a nice low pass! Enjoy the video!
The Beech 18 Matt performs (serial number 4383) in was built in 1943 by the
Beechcraft Corporation at Wichita, KS. Designated an AT-7C, the airplane
was bought new by the United States Army Air Corps and spent the duration
of the war as a navigation trainer based at Houston's Ellington Army Air
Field. In 1945, the Army transferred ownership to the Civil Aeronautics
Administration (CAA) which would later become the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA). Re-designated a C-18S and registered as N52, the
airplane served with the CAA until 1949. The airplane was then
reregistered as N59 and served as a VIP transport for the United States
Department of Commerce until 1959. The airplane was then reregistered as
N9109R and went through several owners including a drop zone and a
university before being purchased by Bobby Younkin Airshows, Inc. in 2000.
After a complete restoration, N9109R was pressed into airshow service as a
replacement for N9729H, Bobby's original aerobatic Beech 18. After Bobby's
untimely death in July of 2005, the Beech spent two years in retirement as
a static display in Tullahoma, TN. Matt debuted his rendition of Bobby's
airshow routine in the famous Beech at Sun-n-Fun 2007. Matt debuted his
original night show in the Beech at Sun-n-Fun 2008 and has been performing
in the airplane ever since. The Beech 18 is the flagship of Matt's
airshow fleet. Matt considers this airplane the most special of the three
that he performs in. Bobby first gained national notoriety in his airshow
Beech in 1990 and continued performing aerobatics in Beeches for 15 years.
Look for airshow appearances in the Beech 18 for many years to come.
