Jim,

What you describe your engine is doing is exactly what I and others have witnessed.  When I researched for info, I found that Lycoming specifies  certain O-320 engine models for different aircraft.  Going down the list, I found only one experimental aircraft - Lancair 320.   That engine model was O320-A2B. Going to their Engine Model specifications list - this engine specifies what is called a -32 carb.  I called Precision to find out what that carb is all about and they explained very precisely.  It is a carburetor set up deliver more fuel across the entire airflow range.  The Lancair 320 has a low back pressure exhaust system compare to certified aircraft with mufflers.  As such it needs more fuel. 

It is NOT, just a larger jet size.  It has a very specific nozzle, and the fuel flow regulator (the brass doohickey in the base of float bowl), is clocked at a different angle relative to the fuel/air mixture rod.  

These features are not something you or your repair shop can change on your existing carb. 

Many people have simply bored out the jet on their existing carbs and were able to get satisfactory results.  But, according to Precision, the atomization will not be ideal.  Often it leads to uneven EGTs.

If you just recently had the engine overhauled, perhaps the rings haven’t seated yet.  If this is the case, high CHT is not unusual until they seat.

Ill confirm Gary Hunters findings.  It took me 3 tries with my engine guru to come up with the correct carburetor fuel flow nozzles.

I’m running an 0-320 with high compression pistons with the standard NACA scoop on the bottom.  I had to adjust the lower lip slightly to improve cooling during a full power climb on a hot day.

A first guess is that your exit area is too small but the best way to diagnose cooling is to set up some piccolo tubes connected to a water manometer or cheap ebay manometer and check the pressure above and below the cylinder fins.  See the discussion here.   Post #38 shows some piccolo tubes.  http://www.vansairforce.com/community/showthread.php?t=143064.   Another discussion here.  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/18661-kents-long-ez-project/?do=findComment&comment=61602

A lycoming should have 5.5” of pressure differential across the fins to cool adequately.  If you don’t have 5.5”, you can start trying to figure out why.

Lightspeed 20XL One Left!

flyingtiger05
 

Hi Canard Aviators,

Yesterday I thought I had sold them all but this morning received an email saying that one person has backed out (not a Canard person). So that leaves me with one more to let go.  As stated before they are new and to my knowledge never used. They come with the original carry bag,  ANR, Bluetooth, Phone jack, Stereo or Mono Volume controls, Battery supply indicator, etc. They are Black with soft ear and head bands. Lightspeed claims on their website that this was the most popular headset they've every sold but no long sell this model but do support it. 

One left at $350 plus 2 day shipping ($25.00) via UPS. USPS is only slightly less and FedEx is a bit more).

Give me a call at 530-386-3100 first come first served!

Hi Charlie,

Sorry to hear you had trouble with all time best selling Lightspeed headset. I've had older models in my VEZE for years and one year I had a problem which I emailed I Lightspeed and they told me to send to them. Within a few days they sent me a brand new headset of the same model. Can't ask for better service than that. 

I have now only 3 left but have a look at the following for sale website on the 20XL:


My price is $350 and they are new and not used. Granted Lightspeed doesn't make them anymore but I'm still using my older model and I've never had a problem since.  I'm not even sure what Bose is charging these days.

For what it is worth:
I had several pair of these. They all broke the plastic frames did not stand up. I have one last pair the top plastic part is broken, I can get $100 credit if I buy a Zulu set for $850.

I do like my Zulu headset.
