riddle for you..... Two dead cyl on left side?
I have a Lycoming O-320 on my RV 4 that has decided
to run on only two cylinders. I would have thought that virtually
impossible to happen. Especially both being cold/dead on the (same)
left side. It’s a carbureted/aspirated, mid-time engine. Shut off
with mags a couple weeks ago to check ground. Exhaust is two pipes
w/crossover. No recent maint done/changes before last flight. Fuel
Flew it in just fine, never skipped a beat, left it outside in
average weather for a few days, went to start it up one morning and
shook like **** after normal easy start. Knew I was in uncharted
territory by the sound it was making. Tried running it up to
1000-1200 RPM thinking a fowled plug, leaned it, cycled mags with
30-40 drop each side. Shut it down after 1-2 min thinking WTF? She
never gives me any trouble.

Take six RVs and then add a Giles 202 (to teach us
tolerance and diversity) and you have the Rocky Mountain Renegade
Formation Flight Team. We just completed our third airshow season
and will now take a few weeks off before starting work on a new and
better show for next year. Here is our 2014 video...... Enjoy
