Do you know if he still had trouble after he did the switch? Or if his problem was fixed?

Default RE:fix

Hi Axel

Sadly N74BZ was sold Jan 2013. It now is owned by a wonderful individual and retired Air Force pilot in North Carolina.

New larger oil cooler really helped subdue the ECi oil squirter high oil temp enduced problem. I do believe that Allen's cowl flaps would have also helped. I did increase the exit air by cutting back the bottom of the cowl aft 1 to 2 inches also. Not sure if that also was helpful......???? Two plus years without my log is a bummer to rebuild my memory.

Anyway I sure miss the RV flying and hanging with the airport usual suspect all the time. I will be helping a good friend and F1 Rocket pilot build a Carbon Cub EX.

Default It worked for us

Axel, we installed the AeroClassic clone and it solved our problem with oil temp. Rarely see anything over 200 on oil temp now. Weak link is now CHTs, installed one cowl flap that helped, will probably put in 2nd one at next CI. PM if I can provide any details.
