If you found receptive and fair minded officials, that could happen and might help set precedent to make an STC process a bit easier down the road.

Default Next batch

G’day Ross,

When are you taking orders for the next batch?

Wouldn’t mind a set for io-320 & o-360

We take orders continuously and put folks on a waiting list. I just doubled the next run quantities which should be in hand mid August.

Still shipping orders on what we have left in stock to those previously on the list.

I'll add your name.

Thank you.

I ordered a kit for my IO540 as I always suspected an intake leak on my engine. I had already replaced all of the flat gaskets, but the idle was still not as steady as it should be. While doing the install, I found that at least one of the flat gaskets (and maybe two) were leaking.

It turned out that the intake tubes, which are connected to the plenum with rubber hoses, just didn't line up with the stub-outs on the plenum, This caused the stiff rubber hose connectors to exert too mush pressure on the tubes, which in turn caused the flat gaskets to leak. My number 1 intake tube was 7/I6" lower than the stub out it was connected to! It was impossible to use the o-ring replacement from Ross without correcting the tube alignment.

I've ordered new parts from Barrett and will have them custom TIG welded when they arrive. If you plan to use these on a 540 they are difficult to install. If you have a cold-air induction system make sure the tubes line up with the plenum first.

-Marc

I received another order of green silicone hose for the injected engines today and have red flanges in stock. Anyone with an injected engine who wants red flanges with green hose, drop me a PM or email and we can ship this week.

I expect the clamps for the carbed engines tomorrow and we can start shipping red flanges for carbed engines then.

Have red flanges, CT clamps and hoses in stock now for carbed engines. I've contacted most people on the "list" now. If I've missed you somehow, drop me a PM. Thanks.

For those who don't know Ross' work ethic, I received a call from him Saturday afternoon to say the parts were available. How many vendors will call you on a Saturday afternoon?!?!

Sorry I wasn't able to answer the phone, Ross. Was being vectored around north of Montreal and had my hands full with an on-the-fly low level re-route.
