Default RV7A UL POWER PROJECT - 200HP 520iS FWF UPFIT WITH PICS

OTHER PICTURES AT POST #43, #47, #53, #54, #57 and #62

Ok Gents,

As promised here it is. Pics of my 200hp UL Power Plant Upfit on my RV7A.

All work is being completed by Ray Lawrence out of Sanderville Ga. Please contact him direcly with and questions about the power plant itself and prop itself..Im just the money man..he is the brains behind the install. A good friend and an incomprable AC Mechanic and Builder.

His Contact: 478-232-9560

We encourage all comments, encouragements, and questions.

Ray will be giving the answers most of the time. I will be updateing with pics as the project advances. FWF first then the all new panel.

The plane will be at Sun N Fun in Paradise City if you want to see it first hand. The FWF with Cowl complete and painted is our goal for the show but that is ambitious at best. Ray will be in attendance.

First pic starts at the pick up of the project, then with the Egg still installed and its removal, clean FW, eng mount, engine install pics, and finally muffler install on one side and brand new upgraded gear leg and fork with Anti Splat installed. Finally the cowl off to the side that will cover it all.

Enjoy, and fire away!

Tango (I'm Stoked!)

Right On! can't tell from the pics, but is the rear of the engine offset to account for P factor? how far forward did the prop end up? I looked at this set up for my 7a before going Lyc. Looks good!

Exclamation Nose wheel stop bracket

Your nose wheel stop bracket is installed incorrectly. This is what most likely cause the nose wheel collapse on the aircraft in another post that just showed up a day ago. Please look at the SB that explains this and then get it installed correctly. Looks good other than that!

Prop forward dimention is 11 inches.

NO, not a James Cowl. This Cowl is specifically designed, prototyped and made for this specific installation option with this engine on an RV7A

Good eyes man!

But the stop bracket is already broken and is only being used temporarily for set up to allow for the engine installation. It will be replace with new and of corse installed correctly at that time.
