The conversion manual I ordered is finally in my hands!
254 pages of information, knowledge and wisdom on converting a Chevrolet Corvair automobile engine into a reliable, powerful and economic to operate aircraft powerplant. Manual #801. I'm entering the arena!
Much to read and digest, but so far the instructions don't seem that complicated. I can do this!
I really like how the author William Wynne thinks and writes. Lots of motivational anecdotes and examples that speak to simplicity without compromising goals. Very cool!
Back to work on cleaning up the shop.... :)
Merry Christmas everyone!
