'39 Plymonth Pickup with a Shaky Jake

Unread postby KlausNW » Mon Aug 29, 2016 2:07 pm

These guys in Colorado pull it off. They mounted a Jacob R-755 from a Cessna 195 floatplane in to a '39 Plymouth pickup.

Here's the Type Cert. Data Sheet- http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgMakeModel.nsf/0/9265d2336c0ca0288525676a00635d6d/$FILE/ATT95MPC/5E-11.pdf

Jay wasn't checked out on the primer... he should have pulled it out and waited for the cylinder to fill with fuel before pushing in. That type of primer usually takes about 15 to 20 seconds between strokes.

What are you gonna do with a bunch of 'car guys'?

Wonder how they check for hydro lock, or even know about it?
