#3 CHT 15F hotter than normal
After 5 flights with this condition it was enough to make me pull the top cowl to have a look. there it was, bugs, and others wedged in between. a check flight today with 35C OAT. CHTs are normal again, all within 10F. I cannot believe how sensitive the CHT is for airflow around #3 and why bugs only collected at #3.
RV-9A, Tip-up, Superior O-320, roller lifters, 160HP, WW 200RV, dual impulse slick mags, oil pressure = 65 psi, EGT = 1300F, flight hours = 900+ for all
Simplicity is the art in design.
I was born an airplane nut. I have no explanation for it.
