Great info Jim, how does the 24v head flow? how big is the difference? I have both a 12v and a 24v 3liter but i'm waiting for some parts to do the conversion, I don't know how much harder it is to put the 24v instead of the 12v

Fedezyl, That's an early 737 (in the photo). In my hometown's runway, the pilot had to engage all brakes, put the engine to full power and once the revs are high the brakes are released. Now the 737-400 has no problems at all. The reverse thrusters were also very interesting on the old 737s. I love...

hmm, interesting, I rented a 159 when I was in France 2 weeks ago, but they only had the 1.9 JTD 120bhp...it was nice, responsive, if a bit short on power but still good for 205kmh on the A1 to Lille, hehe, I wanted to rent a petrol engine but they had none, not the 2.4 5 cyl JTD either..just the en...

hmm, wires out...three, one to positive coil, one to negative coil, one to ground, yep, i'm sure it's a hall type ignition module, that's what the guy said it was and the only thing he builds as far as ignition goes...it's missing a resistance out of the coil to the distributor, that I didn't put in...

Electronic ignition problem, please help!

Well, I have a little problem...here's the thing...I bought in France an electronic ignition conversion for my bosch distributor on the 1.6, here's the thing, the kit basically replaces the condenser and the other crap by a disk with four magnets and a little sensor that you put in there, I followed...

I have been hearing about this upcomming "pilot shortage" since 1988, it never happens, there has been a pilot glut in the U.S. for at least that long. The only serious pilot shortage I am aware of was in Germany in 1945. Matt, in the U.S. cargo is currently the way to go. More money, more days off...

I didnt think they let too many of them get around anymore! What are they like, Greg? I imagine it would be a nice challenging aircraft to fly. I didnt realise you meant flight enginer, as opposed to an engineer- that would've been on 747 300s? I have a friend whose dad is one of the last of the br...

Yes, some kind of computer gremlin kept the aircraft from applying go around thrust...since, basically the autothrottle is on all the time, you just move the throttles into given detents, it just put out enough thrust to maintain that angle of attack and speed I guess, Airbuses have something called...

Well I don't know how I somehow missed this post, yesterday was my first flight after a 36 day vacation, wow I can tell you it's nice, haha, kinda missed flying after 2 weeks of inactivity, what was certainly odd was to go flying a Piper Cub about 3 weeks ago, going from 140kts on final to 50 mph is...
