Default Frequently asked installation questions for the Glastar & Sportsman

Over the coming weeks, our staff will be posting our customer's model specific installation questions as well as our answers and guidance from our notes. Eventually, this will create a searchable knowlege base that may be of help to people in similar situations.

Feel free to post your situation and what you did to overcome it. We'll chime in if we have something to add or if we know that your solution might not work with another known configuration.

8 years, 3000 plus exhaust installations and we still run into new "challenges"

Default PFS for OMF-160?

Darren,
I know this is the Glastar/Sportsman Forum. Since the Symphony is the factory cousin, just wondered if there is a kit for the OMF/SA-160? I believe I saw a 2005 for sale listing a Powerflow exhaust on it, but have seen nothing further on it. Is it still available? Rumor from OSH is that Symphony could make a come back in 2008 (Can't keep a good plane down) Thanks for your time.

Ron

Ron,

I'll answer this for Darren. We do have a system for the Symphony / OMF. In fact, our exhaust system was available on new aircraft as a factory installed option. I hope you're right about them building planes again, I think it's a great airplane and we really enjoyed flying it during our flight test program.

Give us a call if you have any specific questions about the kit.

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.
