Default Progress

Hi,

I am making some headway on the 13b rebuild and the instrument panel. Here are a few shots of the iron side housings. i am sealing off the old intakes ports because the aluminum rotor housings have been P Ported.

I also built up a mockup thin aluminum IP to see where the instruments will land. EFIS in the middle. I might change this by moving the compass up and see if I can get the Alt and AS lined up underneath it.

Almost forgot, Does anyone have a 3rd gen front cover for a 13b? Want to go with a sensor and gear instead of the 2nd gen CAS. Thanks

T Mann,

Paul Lamar was offering the service and I got in on the first 10 housings. I had a 89 that I wanted to use but after disassembly it had launched an apex seal which took out the rotor and the housing. I found a good rotor housing on ebay and shipped them to Paul. They mill the hole and weld a stainless tube to the liner. Seal plates with O rings address water jacket leakage to the out side.

Out of all of the P Port housings this solution seems the best. No epoxy holding the P Port together. He did this to a Renes and ran it on a dyno without any problems. If you go to his website I believe the machinist took over the operation.

Started working on the rotor housings by grinding the welds, drilling the holes into the outside wall of the water jacket and tapping for (4) screws that will hold the seal plates to the block. The plates have an O ring while rtv takes care of the screws. I want to use longer screws to capture the slide throttle mounting plates spacing the plate out with 5/8" spacers so that the plate is flush with the tube.
