      Re: edo 1400 installation

      Happy to be of some help. Back when I was younger the Old Men of Alaska Aviation were not very willing to give up their secrets and knowledge. That was their culture until they got to know you, and you (me in that case) proved to them that it was was worth their time to share. That's why I started being brief and direct...to eliminate tire kickers...but when you fly that Taylorcraft on floats it'll be worth all your efforts.

      Keep us posted on your progress.

      BTW factory blocks and other float parts have EDO manufacturer markings plus part numbers. Part numbers when alone can be applied by anyone with a stamp kit to machined parts.

            Congratulations on the new configuration - SES! Enjoy the floats. Try loading forward and aft within TCDS limits to see how she does taking off-stalls-cruise.

                I'd want to see 2350 rpm static on floats and close to redline full power in cruise to guarantee performance. Try to find an accurate outboard tach checker to determine that. It may cruise mid 80's to low 90's if the prop's flat but will carry a load better on takeoff.

                    Longer the prop the better the thrust...but eventually we have to cruise. With my C-85 Stroker (a C-90) I use a 74-40.

                        its not the length of the prop its how you use it
                        id rather have a short prop than no prop at all

                          I swing a Field Approved Sens M76AK-2-40 (74") at 2425-2440 static. But that's with a C-150 exhaust and a Donaldson free flowing air filter. Longer is better for takeoff/climb vs shorter. Shorter takes more pitch to absorb and transfer horsepower.
