can run on jet-A, kerosine, diesel, gas/diesel mix or bio-diesel the power is related to the BTU output of the fuels, but of 1st concern is maint. proper pyro-temps you DO NOT want to over heat a turbine ! #6's are at their torque limits that is where the torque meter control comes into play limiting torque thru the drive line Gerry, James, Dennis or some of the other turbine guys w/experience could go into this deeper ! G-how u-doin dude ? have the rinse system finished ?

Jay I think you really are becoming a Turbine GEEK
Looks like you can retain all the Bull [email protected] i spew

Yes the t53 has a torque metering system This is a hydromechanical pressure gauge that is dash mounted.
This actualy measures the output torque at any given throttle
range. Basicaly for those of us that run the weak #6 drive
it allows us to measure the amount we are applying to the drive when we are on the sticks.
The big guys like Geico run Shaft drives.

Anyone want a pair of sixes traded for a pair of Arnesons
ASD8,s????


The water injection is complete Herring 38,s are on and we
are Ready.

Stop by Saturday if ya can.
Oh yeah got some new brake pads with some race compund
stops the rotor within 4 seconds. The other compound was just to soft.
