Jeff Jones recently got his System32 equipped RV-14A into the air.
Here are a couple of pics:
This sure is a nice looking bird! This plane has a Lycoming IO-390 engine with full System32 engine management.
Jeff has a nicely outfitted panel:
Jeff had an interesting engine problem after first start. Pickling oil was working its way out of the engine and fouling his lower spark plugs. A couple of good hard run-ups finally cleared the engine.
* Update on this issue * Engine oil may have been coming in to the combustion area through rings that hadn't seated yet. In any case, a hard ground run cleared up the spark plug oiling.
“Once we got past the problem of spark plug fowling from the pickling oil, the EFII system has run flawlessly. My confidence in the system is so high that after a couple of hours of circling airports I was ready to head east from Denver over the empty plains of Colorado where the only place to land is a plowed field. This is the smoothest Lycoming I have ever flown.”
