They are what lycombing provides.
I assure you it is easier to rig then your piston counter part.
Pricing on two Turbines would be half the cost of two sterlings.
I am not refering to EBAY specials eithier.
How about two completely rebuilt with vibration analisys
and test cell sheets.
They are loud. I agree. But not really that louder then my
PSI 557,s were with 5 inch Stellings.
The bell housings crash boxes brakes are all available over the counter.
Exhaust gets a little custom its basicaly built for each application.
Beleave me I,m the biggest hack out there If I can do it
Watched a T-38 on takeoff roll suck in a gull. Dropped like a rock. Since they were about to run out of runway, they tried to punch out- unsuccesfully. I was less than 1/2 mile away.
Turbines are wonderful devices but certainly not bulletproof or hassle-free.
what about the water cooled exhaust you see now. What affect does that have on the noise or anything? Warbird i believe was one of the first.
If I was to do it I would have one of the Marine Turbine Shops set it up the first time and I would just be doing the work from there on.
I have a few questions. First, what about insurance? Does Markel still cover you? Second, we float around alot just hanging out. If we get close to shore, I fire one motor and back away. How long is the start process? If you start them say, 6 times a day, will you smoke your batterys? Cheaper than blower motors? Thats interesting........
