He said there was absolutely NO correlation with the problems reported in the CASA study vs problems in US engines as evidenced by repairs or parts orders. These eagles are designed with a shorter (VW) prop in mind. The most important thing to remember is to cut the oil pump capacity way down. made CNC aluminum cases, twice the price and then some, of new magnesium Here's an example, on head rebuilding in time – why you should NEVER build an engine on a used case).

VW prop hub on AeroveeThe issue has arisen many times about Prop Hubs on VW engines and the lack of bearing surface. Whether the power is there or not for the model aircraft you are building, do keep in mind there is a significant offset, especially in a belt type re-drive. He doesn't advocate you do the same.
Re: Valley Engineering Big Bad Twin 50hp? You can also get the crankshaft and propeller hub pre-assembled as an option.
A simple exhaust system provides cabin heat and directs exhaust out to the rear of the car.

I Warren Mosler specialized in racing engines and added the engine to the list of products eventually marketed under the company name Total Engine Concepts.
The VWs build for Aircraft use seem to work OK with reasonably reliability. The short answer: it's generally a Bob Always a good idea to plan through that regardless of engine choice. Most of the carb solutions work OK, but have issues, typically with less than optimum mixture control.
