    sluka engine mounts

    Hi Guys,

    I am in the process of getting my Sluka ready for the forthcoming season but it looks like I may need new engine (lord) mounts. Has anybody purchased any recently and from where.

    Regards

    Hadders

    If my memory still serves you need fairly standard Lord Mounts, you can get these from Skydrive

    Hi Ginge,

    They are not the ones Skydrive supply, they seem to be much bigger.

    Regard Hadders

    Humm, it seems my aging memory has let me down, have you tried Aircraft Spruce?

    It may be worth sending a PM to Gerry Holland who recently sold his sluka, he may have details of where he bought his.

    sluka engine mounts

    A few years ago I replaced my Sluka Lord Mounts with type 200 P35 from the USA because I was having trouble sourcing them in the UK. If you see the post date 28/4/07 on this forum it explains a bit more.

    Regards

    sluka engine mounts

    Thanks for the reply, the problem solved now as part of my modification we have designed solid mounts and used new lord mounts in the engine frame and these seem to work.

    Just having to do the load testing before I can fly.

    sluka engine mounts

    Hi Hadders and other Sluka type people.
    Reloction of the workshop means downsizing and one of the objects to go is the kit made up to load test the fittings for the 508 motor we fitted to Hadders machine to replace the 447 .
