Hi,

Just some news: the engine and the propeller is in my workshop, fantastic peace of metal, marvelous work, you've excelled yourselves.

Thanks and Salutations Hervé.

Just a question: It'll be some time before I install the R2800, I suppose that the engine can stay in the box for the next two or three months (?) or what is the storage procedure?


(Rotec replied: you need to follow storage procedure and apply oil or a surface protectant to the cylinders - remove the plugs spray into each pot and with the plugs out rotate the engine using the prop or a lever through half a dozen turns very slowly... repeat ever month)
