Question about Century Cw-748323 Century Wings Sr-71 Blackbird Diecast Model

1 Answer

I'm fairly sure that the engine inlet spikes in my SR-71 model have been fitted wrongly. The spikes on the real aircraft are assymetric and are angled slightly inwards whereas on my model they are angled slightly outwards....if they could be removed and swapped over and reinserted this would fix the problem...any ideas ?

Can I be certain that my new E-Drive will fit my Lycoming installation?

A starter that is a replacement may not always fit the actual installation of your engine that is why manufactures offer a variety of models.

Could the resistance to the starter be the reason that my starter is starting slow?

Jessy is correct, but there are a number of other points to note.

You didn\'t mention the aircraft type nor engine type, so I can\'t be too specific. The location of the battery is important; some aircraft have the battery in the back, some under a seat and some in the engine bay. The distance from the battery will have an effect on the starter. Earlier aircraft types have been known to have aluminium battery cables. If they are fitted on your aircraft you should change them to copper. (Most copper cables will be \'tinned\' so they will look silver, don\'t confuse them with aluminium). The engine is mounted with rubber mounting blocks, there should be a large earth strap or cable fixed to the engine from a \'ground\' point on the aircraft or engine mount. This earth lead is very important and should be very well secured. If it is not the starter will find an earth through other electrical leads such as the \'screening\' around the magneto switch leads or the alternator field leads. This can cause a fire. What I normally do is to take each earth lead and secure it using a \'shakeproof\' or \'star\' type locking washer between the lead head and the engine or airframe ground point, (like a sandwich). This helps to make a sound connection. The live leads should not be overlooked either, nor the condition of the battery and the battery terminals. Lastly, some of the smaller aircraft engines were plagued with bad starting due to the fact that the starter turned the engine too fast and the magneto impulse coupling retracted so not allowing the impulse to catch on the impulse pawl, thus the ignition was not retarded nor was the impulse \'wound up\' to give a good spark. The solution to this problem was to fit starters with a different gearing that slowed down the cranking speed. There is a Lycoming service letter on this subject. So, check that you have the correct starter fitted to the engine type - not all starters are the same!
