Default Baffle inlet ramps - engine pictures

I've got an old IO-360 baffle kit from Vans,I'm having trouble telling what is what in the hand drawn plans.

Anyone have pictures of the baffling where the inlets meet the fwd center of the engine behind the flywheel?

Thanks

Aaron

Default Baffles

Hi Aaron,

I have recently bought a set of baffles for my RV8 with an IO 360. I have the RV drawings which I could get copied for you. I have to say, the RV baffles are very poor and need extensive trimming, very time consuming!

Let me know if I can help,
Regards, Brent

If you've got the plans CD, look in the OP Drawings folder for OP04 IO-360 Baffle.pdf.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have the OP drawing, even with that the baffle kit is like a jigsaw puzzle. I think I have mostly figured out. Now I just have to adapt it to the showplanes cowl...

Try looking through this thread for pictures.

That area is one of the most confusing parts about the baffles, and everyone seems to have a slightly different end result.
