    Looking for old Popular Science LTD 465 Hyper cycle article

    Hey ... long time no see. I'm trying to give a young Air Force Captain, and fellow Steel Soldier, a hand with a thesis he is writing on the hyper-cycle multi-fuel engine. I know that either Popular Science, Popular Mechanics or Mechanics Illustrated did a pretty big article on the 465LTD when...

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    OK … I’m stumped. And after 3 days, more than a little frustrated. 6 weeks ago my Deuce was running great, except it was “making oil” in the oil pan. My wife had her hip replaced … so I let it sit for the 6 weeks. I was coming up on my annual maintenance so I figured I just do...

    A couple of M35a2 design and history questions

    I've done a bit of searching, both here and on the web, but I can't seem to find any answers to these. 1. Does anybody have any idea if the removable steel hard top was part of the original design workup or was it an after-thought add on? If the top came after the first Deuce's were built ...

    Photos of combustion chambers & injectors from 2 engines running WMO

    For what its worth. Recently, I have been disassembling a LDT 465 to determine the cause of its broken cam shaft. Interestingly, this engine has been run for one year on a WMO blend. I have determined that this camshaft failed due to worn cam bearing and that its fuel did not enter into the...

    Hose ends ... upgrade to camlocks?

    I've been processing and running WMO in my Deuce for some time now. I've been on a tight budget, so I've cut corners where I could.

    Cessna L-19/OE-1 Birddog

    I always admired the guys that flew low and slow over Vietnam ... just LOOKIN' for trouble ... and givin' their all to help out the guys on the ground. The Cessna L-19/OE-1 Birddog couldn't be more aptly named. No hunter ever had a more fearless, reliable and ready companion. This is not...
