A milestone for sure. Did you hang it solo?

Default Jealous!!

Wow! I'm completely jealous.

You have the Ingersoll Rand 2 stage compressor??!!

Just kidding - I hope to be at the "hanging the engine" stage one day too! Congratulations!

Excellent work! Now when you sit in the plane and make airplane noises it will be that much more realistic (and expensive)!

I built a ND for my current one. I like it. You may need to drill/tap a shallow 1/4-20 hole on the flat boss above the starter for the left ramp brace.

Not a solo effort - my financial and 'when needed' build partner (and RV-6 owner) lent a hand (and a hoist):



You guys are a riot...I did sit in the airplane tonight, but was muttering foul language running the wires for the Dynon and unwiring the OAT probe from the connector for a re-route; also figured out the governor studs are too short. Not sure what an ND is...

2 1/2 years in and finally able to remove the sawhorse from under the tail, and the garage door still shuts. What's not to like?
