Engine Arrives!

Time: 0 Hours

The time has come and my AeroSport Power IO-375-M1S Engine has made its great trek from Kamloops BC to Oswego IL. The truck arrived on time and the driver made quick work of carefully unloading it off the truck. After a quick inspection of the condition of the crate I signed off on the paperwork so he could be in his way.

Once I had it in the shop I put it off of the way so I could work on the wings. With the right upper gear leg fairing done I was finished with the wings and we could remove them. With Glenn’s help we made quick work of the six bolts I had holding the wings on and we put the wings back in their cradles. I then moved the plane back into the original position so that we would have good access to both of our engine mounts for the engine hanging party we will eventually have. Next up was to uncrate the engine after I put it into position just below the engine mount.

We are shooting for next weekend to get the engines hung which will give me a week to get items ready for the big day.
