Default Re: Installation issue with cowl flap on Glastar

Installation notes on Glastar: Cowl Flap hinge conflict:

We just spoke with a customer who has a Glastar with a fairly standard installation Lycoming O-320, factory standard exhaust and standard cowling per the plans. He ran into difficulty routing the Power Flow exhaust out of the cowling and not actually running into the cowl flap hinge. The best resolution was to move the hinge about 1/2 more forward to create suitable clearance of between 1/4 and 1/2 inch. After flying he didn't notice any vibration or buzzing so he has not got any contact points in flight and he thought the aircraft had noticeably more performance.
