UPDATE: Ordered the T-Bolt April 2019 and got word today it should be shipping this week! Roughly 9 month lead time.....pics to follow when it arrives.


As far as the propeller I was toying with an idea of selling, $$$ says I keep the one I have. But for my next airplane............


Build on.

What color did you go with for the engine? And the copper/brass covers?

Haven't ordered mine yet, but I have it on good authority from my children that red is the fastest color.

Mark, why are you considering selling your prop? Which one are you installing? I'm expecting my prop to arrive next week but the power plant not until mid-year, probably right after AirVentures.

Color - deep blue case with green jugs. I know sounds odd but matches the airplane paint scheme

Prop - I was considering it as I wanted a 3 blade. My reasoning was that spending the extra on a t bolt would be wasted somewhat by putting on a 2 blade. I just can?t put the extra cash on a 3 blade at this time.....and I talked to my local prop guy and he thinks with the discount I wouldn?t lose that much selling it later with 300 hours on it

Default Lycoming T bolt lead times

All,

I ordered my Thunderbolt engine in November. Jeff tells me that I should expect a late September delivery, but hope fully sooner. Nine- ten months seems to be the norm, so plan accordingly.

Default a long time

Ordered mine from Jeff in person at Sun & Fun 2019 and it came last week 1/24/2020. But still excited as can be! It's red. The build took longer so it worked out well.

FYI I ordered my stock Lyc 390 and prop on 10/31/19 and received my engine on Feb 13. 3 1/2 months is not too bad
