Franks Bearhawk Engine Test Run
LS1 firewall forward engine package with Geared Drives spur gear PSRU built for Frank's Bearhawk airframe. Test run after 5 minutes at idle produced 145 degrees, 15 minutes 150 degrees, 20 minutes 160 degrees. When brought up to 2000 RPM the engine cooled back down to 155 degrees! We have the right cooling combination and we can make auto engines run as cool as you would like in this configuration.
Saying Goodbye to my Bearhawk
This is the last time I saw my homebuilt Bearhawk N57EN (Miss'ippi Mudbug) .This is the first time I have ever seen it fly with someone else at the controls. I sold it and here it is flying off into the clouds as Lee Taylor starts on his journey to deliver it to it's new owner in Canada. One last low pass over the runway and then off into the clouds. Sad day for me.
