Geared Drives recently completed a complete engine package for our first pusher customer, Erik Franks, in California and we are anxiously awaiting reports from Erik on the installation and his first flight! He has graciously allowed us to mention his name and to post photos of his engine package on our site.
Please feel free to email or call if you have any questions regarding the Geared Drives engine packages for your pusher application. The photos below are of Eriks airplane as he had just finished mounting the engine to the firewall.
Click on any photo to see it full size.
The photos below were taken as we prepared to remove the engine from the stand for shipping, which is why the coolant overflow tank is taped to the engine mount.
All aluminum water cooled Chevrolet LS1 engine with altitude compensating electronic fuel injection. Spur gear propeller speed reduction unit with fully automatic centrifugal clutch and flywheel assembly. Ships already assembled and test run for bolt on application to Foxtrot firewall. Custom programmed ECM and wiring harness. You add your own prop governor, prop, fuel pumps, and fuel regulator/filter.
