Wanted Dick Harvey timing case for external oil pump

Postby Reliant Flyer » Sun Apr 25, 2010 2:10 am

Hello,
I am looking for a Dick Harvey timing case made for external oil pumps as mentioned on page 90 and shown on page 92 of the 750 Racer book. I am converting a Reliant engine for a vintage 1930's ultralight aeroplane I am building.
Thanks,
Clarke Tate

If you can't get one I have a Mocal pump with a nose drive for the Reliant engine, drives off the cam If I remember correctly if you want to dry sump it, or run an external pump. It came off my Hague 81. Pm me if you want it , I also have two Dick Harvey head gaskets for the high comp race engines.

Hello Ian,
The Dick Harvey unit seems more appropriate for my needs. Once I have learned more maybe I'll appreciate the option you just offered me. Thanks for the gasket offer, I'm not trying to take anything too dear. How much better are these gaskets? I will only be running the aircraft engine at about 3,000 to 3,500 RPM so may I assume a standard gasket is adequate? I might need to move this question to the tech area. Any input is appreciated!

Those Dick Harvey gaskets are really superb. I managed to re-use them very succesfully - just required a very thin layer of grease to make sure they didn't stick firm, and the only time I had one fail was when a couple of my head studs had pulled the threads in the block. I tried standard gaskets but they failed. Buy them!

I have worn parachutes and there is not much room for one in a tiny, wood construction ultralight aeroplane. It looks like I am headed toward a racing engine philosophy versus "auto" engine. I know I have a lot to learn. I see Ian that the Evans coolant is used by Rotax in Aero engines. I have learned something just looking at your website link. NOW ABOUT THOSE GASKETS, how may I buy those from you Ian?

I have been pm'd was that you ?

I am the North European distributor for Evans cooling systems, Rotax spec this as OE for their aero engines. Zero corrosion, 200c boiling and -40 freezing so pretty usefull in an aeroplane really... ;) ........granted a parachute is probably a tad usefull as well... :shock:
