BTW, Scott is this month's centerfold in Kitplanes. You'll find an account of his adventures to date, and future plans.

As a bonus, Continental was kind enough to grant access to their development facility for an internal tour of the CD230/CD265 series diesel, with photos of the interesting bits. If you like the article, tell 'em next time you visit a Continental display.

Back to the rudder stop...

<Edited> I shouldn't have commented. I remembered the -10's rudder stop as being like the one on my -6. It isn't.

Mike,

I did use another bulkhead for the doubler and door. Was able to piggyback my order with another local builder. I had to run an aluminum angle along the right side of the doubler to stiffen that side. Feels like the original bulkhead. I'll try to get a picture for you.

Scott,

Iím also interested in how you framed the access door in the bulkhead. Not sure if you were going to PM the picture to Mike but is there any chance you can post that picture here or PM it to me as well. Thanks!!

Default Baggage Bulkhead Door

What a fantastic idea building a door into the bulkhead. I stripped out those lower corner screws way to many times getting mine off and on!

All of Scott's airplane is an example of attention to detail and ease of use. Continental couldn't have asked for a better RV-10 test bed for the diesel engine.

The stock stops shear the rivets (empty holes in the photo) attaching them to the hinge bracket? Got it. No fundamental change to the load path into the aircraft structure.

Default Bulkhead Access

Note: I am not an engineer nor has one reviewed this mod.


My opening inside the doubler is approx. 11" x 13". I did use a second lower bulkhead for the doubler and new door, but I guess you could do this without it if you cut the door opening carefully. Also, I had planned on using 1/4 turn fasteners, but the edge distances didn't quite work out, so I used #8 screws instead. The outboard side needed an aluminum angle for stiffness due to narrow strip of material remaining compared to inboard side. Run the angle to the bottom of the hinge and to the top of the aft bulkhead. Depending on how wide your door is you will need to trim the stiffener at the bottom to match the angle of the frame.


Send me a PM if you need more.
