    Poly tone is like lacquer.  It will melt into itself.  Just mist another coat over the damaged area.  Done.

    912 has a mechanical pump driven by a cam in the gearbox.

    Still waiting to see that elusive 2-stroke Detroit that does not have a blower.
    BTW, this is the smallest Detroit 2-stroke, a 1-53 engine.  Note the blower on the side.

    I’m based at KRRL, my friend with the Avid is at a private strip WI00.

    If you're interested in the road trip there's a couple of us up north...  Mine's a model 4, but I have a good friend with a Mark 4 Avid that will give you a ride, too.

    With the pitch setting I have now, I see 5500 to 5600 on full power takeoff roll.  The Prince I was getting 5200.  
    Cruise at 5000 rpm I see 100 mph now and ~90 before.
     
    I played with higher pitch settings and saw 125 mph at 5500 rpm...

    So far, so good.  Performance is good.  The Prince pulled harder out of the hole, but the Luga/NR is faster on the top end.  I went from 200' takeoff to 250'.  I can live with that.
    After the world of bullcrap is over, I'd like to try a pair of 79" blades in it to see how they perform.

    Not engaging in an argument, but yes, I would very much like to see a 2-stroke Detroit Diesel engine without a gear driven roots type blower.
    Please educate me.

    For the record, ALL 2-stroke Detroits have a blower.  These are not super-chargers they are blowers to move the air through the ports to the combustion chambers and evacuate exhaust gasses.  Without the blower it would not run.  They do not provide boost over standard atmospheric pressure.
    Later, more powerful engines added the turbo to gain boost over standard atmospheric pressure.
     
    Great looking project, BTW.  Have you ever tuned into the "Bus Greasemonkey" on YouTube?  He's a traveling Detroit mechanic who only works on old GM busses.
