2,700 cc Corvair running on video


 Here is a short video of the last Corvair to run at CC #37, this was the engine that Kiku Williams was assembling.



In the video the engine is cooling down at 1,000 rpm after a full 40 minute break in run.  The engine is a rebuild and a partial update.  It flew 150 hrs years ago, but was removed from the damaged airframe after an acquaintance of the former owner botched a landing attempt from 20 feet in the air. Since then the engine got a full tear down and inspection, a different crank, a 5th bearing, gold oil system, and a 2400-L starter system. it retains the old black hub and bolt on head pipes.





About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at www.FlyCorvair.com and in more than 50 magazine articles.
