I have a few pages of pics on EAA326's chapter webpage. You can access it thru the link in my signature. It's more pictorial than technical.
My RV-8 was built with an auto conversion. A turbocharged Mazda rotary engine. So those curious about alternative engines might find it useful.
I flew it 16 hours but only enjoyed the experience for a few minutes, although I did enjoy building it. I plan to mount the complete Mazda power egg on a 'Snowplane' aka 'Aerosled', or an Airboat.
I'm posting the RV8 conversion to Lycoming power now.

There is nothing
-absolute nothing-half so much worth doing as simply messing around with Aeroplanes
