How did Dennis pass?

 I got to know him at RR three years ago when we were sitting around having cigars a few nights and now and then share cigar photos on Facebook. 

I also would enjoy watching his timelaps video of RR.  

God Speed Dennis.

Thanks Chrissy, this is a Cozy IV mount, I'm not sure I made that clear. So mine likely does not have the addition brace correct? Still, I think I'll just inspect it until I see evidence of cracking or more reports for my particular mount surface.

Dear Tim,
We've been making mounts maybe 16 years? So far so good no cracks reported.
Not long after making our early LE mounts Ken Miller contacted us and recommended adding the two additional upper tubes, we adopted that right away. In Ken's experience the highly cantilevered LE mounts cracked most frequently at the top tube within the heat affected zones of the welds (within 1" of the weld) or on the top cross tube.
Most LE mounts out there are original Brock's or Weldtech (Weldtek?) typically smaller diameter tubes on the dynafocal ring and all wall thicknesses were 0.049" these mounts were mostly per plans for much smaller motors than are common today.
The example Marc shows is a typical crack and if it were under powder coat you would never be aware of it until the tube is fully broken. This is why we strongly recommend to prime lightly and use a rattle can of high gloss refrigerator white.. or shoot gloss white epoxy paint, just make it a light coating of glossy white paint. It is easier to clean, inspect, and detect.

Marc, untrue, probably since you emailed us about it I think over a year ago we have added this mod to Cozy Mk-IV dynafocal mounts. All LE & Cozy III dynafocal mounts have included this mod for years.

The CG Products Long-EZ mounts have this reinforcement. However, their COZY O-360 mounts do not, and they should. I don't know about anyone else's engine mounts, if there even is anyone else selling mounts for these planes anymore.

Subject: COZY: O-320 / O-360 Long-EZ/COZY Engine Mount Cracks

Folks:

While in the process of getting a customer's Long-EZ ready to sell, I performed the equivalent of a Pre-Buy examination. During this exam, I found a crack in the engine mount. The crack is located at the tip of the purple arrow in the picture below and wraps from the top of the horizontal tube all the way around to the bottom - about 180 degrees.

 

 This is a relatively standard place for cracks to occur when using the original engine mount design (I had my O-360 engine mount on my COZY MKIV crack there at about 1100 flight hours as well), due to a design that was carries over from the original O-235 Long-EZ engine mount and never upgraded for heavier engines, with more vibration and G forces.

Any structural engineer (or anyone that understands structures, engineer or not) will be able to look at this and tell why they crack there - the top dynafocal mounts are cantilevered at the weld where they meet the two other tubes - the vertical one coming from the bottom, and the horizontal one coming from the top fuselage mounting points. The dynafocal mount wants to bend aftward and down with G forces and the weld zone takes all the bending stress. Very bad.

The fix, and it's been around for a zillion years, has been to install triangulation tubes in the location of the large red line - connect a point on the top cross tube, near the dynafocal mount, to the horizontal tube, close to the fuselage. This removes the bending loads at the weld and turns them into tension loads in the new tube. Voila' - problem solved. This is almost certainly what we will have to do with this aircraft - PITA to remove the engine/mount, fix it, and then re-install everything.

Here's a picture of the crack in an inspection mirror:


It's just a faint black horizontal line in the mirror, but it's there. I saw a small crack in the paint (which sometimes is just paint cracking), so I sanded off the paint and primer. The crack was hard to see until I blew out all the dust with compressed air, and then it was obvious that it was, in fact, a crack in the tube at the weld heat affected zone starting at the base of the weld.

Anyway, for those of you with larger engines on your Long-EZ's, or for those of you with COZY's, you should be inspecting this area of your engine mount very carefully at every CI, if not every time you remove the top cowl, especially if your aircraft has more than a few hundred hours on it. If you don't have reinforcements welded onto the original engine mount, you should think hard about installing them. I figure about 15 hours to remove an engine and mount, weld in the reinforcing tubes and reinstall everything. Not too much time, especially if you're not paying someone to do it.

The CG Products Long-EZ mounts have this reinforcement. However, their COZY O-360 mounts do not, and they should. I don't know about anyone else's engine mounts, if there even is anyone else selling mounts for these planes anymore.

It will still whittle things down for you but you generally get less hits for it than the other search. It's better than scanning through emails.

I went to this reference a hundered times during my build for good andswers and solutions from real inventive or intelligent folks who just are not accessable anymore.

Is there a volunteer out there who would like the challenge of making a new email archive text search engine fur us and future builders? I'd do it but my IT experience goes no farther than an online download.

Re: Canard Aviators Mailing List Rules and Guidelines

Since when did we have rules?

Hello,

 

Of late I have noticed a post or two that goes against our informal list guidelines and want to ask a moment of everyone to consider the following guidelines (which I adjusted for the Canard Aviators list from here).

 

You can find the full and adjusted list of guidelines below, but the highlights are as follows:

 

  1. Keep the conversation related to canard aircraft, particularly the building and safe flying of canard aircraft.
  2. Absolutely no personal attacks.  Example:  “…uninformed Zeitlin crap.”
  3. Discussing politics is prohibited.  Example:  “Socialism is…”
  4. Discussing religion is prohibited. 

 

You may push the limits however you like, but please understand that some amount of moderation is presently in place to prevent posts that violate these guidelines from diminishing this forum’s value.  It’s time-consuming to moderate “flagged” members – we do not wanted more moderated members – and so it is obviously easier to prevent a member from posting altogether for a period of time.  So PLEASE, make best efforts to keep the conversation focused on canards.

 

The full list is below.  Thank you for your time and keeping the dis! cussion most interesting and informative!

 

 

1. Civility and Respect. If you cannot be as nice and courteous as one would expect from an in-person conversation with a stranger and their children, then please move along to somewhere else on the Internet; abusive behavior and personal attacks will not be tolerated here. Moderators will delete (not edit) the offending post.

2. Absolutely NO POLITICS OR RELIGION. Do not risk the one thing we have in common (canards) with polar topics and references. Anything remotely resembling a pointed political or religious reference will result in deletion of your post.

3. Subject Matter. Keep your posts related to the building and flying of canard-type aircraft. The only exception to this are posts made in the 'Coffee House' sub-forum, where general aviation-related topics are allowed (and encouraged).

4. Maintain Subjects when Possible. To facilitate easy reading and following of discussions by others, avoid changing the email subject text whenever possible.  Realize that when changing the email subject text you are effectively starting another discussion topic.

5. Succinct Post Quoting. For best reading by others, make an effort to quote the relevant parts of the post you are replying to and remove the rest. It usually is never the case that the next reader desires to re-read the entire content of the post you just replied to. Try to use quoting "surgically" to provide context to your answers. Moderators will not likely comment on "violations" here, but you might expect to be ignored by the member community.

6. Avoid Post Noise. The Canard Aviators email list is not intended to be a one-liner chat room, Twitter feed, or Facebook status founta! in (although we may link to these services). The purpose is to provide useful content, so consider that other members may not care to weed through one or two-word "me too", "ok", or "smiley" responses.

7. Inappropriate Content. Please avoid in your posts, avatars, signatures, etc., anything that another might regard to be vulgar or sexually explicit. We have people from all walks of life here, so do not expect much of a second chance here.

8-9. N/A.

10. Violations. Typically offending posts will have the member posting warned. The first step will be moderation, where posts will not be visible until reviewed and approved by a moderator (whenever time permits).  Excessive warnings or blatant disregard of these guidelines may result in banning the member for a period of time.

11. Advertising and Commerce. Vendors and suppliers are an important part of our community, as well as individuals who may provide some sort of service to the community. You are welcome to include a tagline or web link in your signature.

Also, treat vendors and related people with respect and refrain from "bad mouthing" any company or anyone in public. The more qualified vendors we have, the better off we builders are.

 

 

Thank you!

Jon
