I hope to get my brother back out to help he was a huge help.
Are the copper clecoes in holes that need some oops rivets?

I could but the holes in the ribs were too big after removing the rivets so upsized them to 4's. I have a number of these throughout the project but more in this section of the wing than I had expected.

The rivets enlarge the holes from the setting and then pulling the tail out works great. If you get one that won't come easily and you use the punch to remove it it can enlarge the hole even with my rivet removal backing bar.

So..."4's"! HAHA

I have since gotten this motor completely disassembled but wanted to add a few pictures to this thread.

Had a hard time with this case number as it pertains to finding exactly what parts go in it. But I am sure once I get it sent off to AS they will be very helpful.

Awesome man. Seeing a motor taken a part is awesome, as long as it's someone else's. Keep up the good work

Hey Jereme! I am really enjoying this part of the project. I am a wrench after all. haha
It is all apart now but ran off to New Mexico to make an Indie film and make some more money for the project...and pay a few bills.

I will keep this thread posted as I think I am going to use it as part of my log.

You've seen it but I can't help but think how this happened, so I posted it again.

Default Engine

There are quite a few -51 engines. Most likely a IO-360 C series.
Refer to Lycoming SSP-110-2 which can be found online. In the back of that document you will find what airplanes used that engine.
Looks like conical mount-is that correct.
A after 51 denotes wide cylinder deck engine or as Lycoming calls it Wide Cylinder Flange.

Thanks for the Info!
It is a conical mount. Getting it re-cut to Dynafocal 1. I was able to find that it was in an Engstrom Helicopter, I believe.

Thanks again!
