3.0 Corvair, Bob Clarke



The second engine to run at CC #42 / 2018 Zenith open house was built by Bob Clark for his 750.



Above , Bob turns the prop while e pre-oil his engine. When we buttoned it up it took less than 2 seconds of cranking to light and run perfectly. A very memorable mile stone in project.




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.

    The 3L is an excellent match for the 750 air frame. I have been pleasantly surprised with the performance of my Cruzer.

    Congratulations Bob! not only go have a great engine that runs and you know it does but you also have a great organization behind you.

    Hi Bob, hope to see your new engine on your new plane in Oshkosh next year! I want to say goodbye but didn’t find you two when I left. And Mr. Wynne thank you, I learned a lot this time again, hopefully, I can prompt myself to rookie grade 2 in the foreseeable future.
