Just a couple of air scoop to catch and direct air across the cooling fins of the cylinder head and barrels. The vernatherm is a thermostat for oil temp, if you pull it off check the 1/4 " nut on it to make sure it is tight. The oil pressure relief valve usually is on the L/H side of the of the case above the #3 cylinder. Aeroshell oil is best IMO and do NOT use multigrade oil, this is old technology use old tech oils. Normal oil pressure will be high cold and about 60 or so warm at running rpms. This is a 320 cu in 4 cyl, 80 cu in per lung, rated at 150 HP at 2650 or so RPM, yep, if it is right it is a strong engine

That's definetly a cool toy always wanted to see one in person. Do you have to run it on LL100 or just automotive gas?

Thanks for the advice. Would it be wise to install EGT for each cyl? It does have an oil temp gauge.

I'll run AV gas. Automotive burns to hot and will kill the engine over time. Wont run as well either on auto pump gas.

There's a number of Lycs running Autogas via STC without issue, as I understand it. Never done it myself, but the EAA group has a bunch of folks who do.

re: EGT - we run JPI in our aircraft to monitor cylinder, exhaust gas and other parameters for each cylinder. Makes leaning more accurate, better fuel economy, happier engine, etc...

Will that gadget work on a carburater Lycoming? If so, where do I look at getting one?

We call them GEM (JIM) systems (graphic engine monitors) ........ You don't need one.......The big advantage is when leaning an engine to proper air/fuel mix at altitude. Set yours up to where it is going to be used and a single point egt probe will be fine. Use a noncontact thermometer to determine hottest exhaust pipe and install probe there. I reccomend 125* rich of peak at power. It is ok to blend 100LL and premium grade of pure gasoline in a ratio of 50/50 with a little MMO for upper cylinder lubrication. The issue with car gas is again at altitude, not on the grou, er, water. Just a hint, when you do develope a miss on a single mag it will most likely be a bottom plug.

What he said.

Unless you plan on going airborne on that thing, adjusted to the altitude its sitting at on the ground will be just fine...
