Default Diesels

I'm at the point where I'm starting to research engines for my 14. The latest threads on the CD-155 or CD-265 are a few years old now... are they any more available or are they still pretty much a certified only option?

Glasair offers the CD-155 in the Sportsman but only in the Two Weeks to Taxi program. There is an up charge of $50k, on top of the base IO-360 at $48k Of course that includes the propeller.

But just for some pricing perspective, they are also charging $3500 for two pmags, and $80k for a full G3X panel ... almost double what a dual screen system with same comments will cost you from any Vans vendor on this site.

Give Lycoming a call. Maybe they'll pull one of these out of the basement for you. I'm hoping Vans will give them a call too for the RV-15.

JOSH---its not just the availability of the engines, but there is literally no support for installing one in a 14. You will be on your own! So, unless you are highly proficient in plumbing, fiberglass, metal fabrication, and just like building things then rebuilding them, and then starting over-----you might rethink this. NOT wanting to burst your bubble, but you become the engineer.

OH---what about the prop and other accessories----that can also prove to be a
"challenge".

OSH, 2009, I had the privilege of having an extended conversation with a Cessna engineer at the C-182 V-8 diesel powered model.

The major point I recall, relevant to the referenced 4 cyl. Lycoming diesel is Cessna went to the V-8 configuration to reduce the combustion firing impulse to levels manageable by a propeller.

Don't think propeller tech has advanced that much, wonder what Lyc has done? Maybe the issue is one reason why collaboration is offered?

FWIW
