|Mark's Mustang II Project Pages|
I have purchased a O-360-A1A from Mustang Aeronautics. After looking at all my engine options and the kind of flying i want to do i decided on the new engine. The cost of new engine at OEM pricing is very attractive. The cost of a used/overhauled engine is within a few thousand of the new engine.
I spent about 8months installing the engine components and wiring the panel. Fitting hoses, putting on the prop governor, routing hoses, installing fuel pump, gascolator, vent lines, ......note this was all very new to me.
Here is the box the Lycoming O-360-A1A arrives in...my wife loves this in the living room...
I also decided to go with a constant speed prop (Hartzell M2YR).Specifications: (from Hartzell for Mustang II)
74" TO 72" DIAMETER 2-BLADE ALUMINUM PROPELLER
I plan to fly this plane for awhile and wanted the obvious benefits of the CS prop.
Engine Break-In Info
Here are some notes on engine break-in by Mattituck.
I am planning on installing a new cowling for the Mustang II that looks similar to the Lancair cowling with the two round air openings on the front.
I have the white powder coated dynafocal mount from Mustang Aeronautics and it looks great.
Also note that there have been some very successful
auto conversions to the Mustang II. Check out the mustang
newsgroup for more details.
