Default Big day today ( 12-11-2013) for the radial RV-8R

Engine is on now. Rotec manufacured the engine mount. The mount is a swing mount allowing me to do maintenance on the accessories if need be. They did a great job as the engine fits right in place. One bolt at a time.....

Bravo. We just came out of the shop bucking rivets on our -8. Great to see some out of the box thinking. We'll look forward to hearing it run.

I hope you bring her to OSH and bring back memories of the S2F I used to crew on for the USS Randolph.
