SPYDER ENGINES


100 HP IFB   or 120 HP IFB
$10,500     /      $12,900

The 100 HP IFB engine that is currently available is the 100 Horsepower 170 cu. in. engine.  It begins as a 1965-1969 Corvair 164 110 HP engine that is stripped down and modified to become an airworthy experimental aviation engine. THe 120 HP Version is made of the same case but has other upgrades listed below.  


The case is cleaned and checked for clearances.  We install the IFB (Integral Front Bearing) housing and align it to the case. The crankshaft has the front steel hub and new gear installed, reground and nitrided for durability.  It is reassembled with new bearings, camshaft, seals, forged pistons, reconditioned cylinders, reconditioned heads, rebuilt valve train, new 30 amp integrated rear alternator, starter, ring gear and much more. 

The 120 HP IFB version of our Spyder engine will look very much the same as our 100 version.   Most differences are internal.  Instead of a reground original GM crankshaft it comes with a brand new counterweighted crankshaft with a 1/4" stroke.  The cylinders are brand new .060 full finned cylinders with custome forged pistons and rods.  The extra stroke and displacement cylinders bring the engine to 3.1L in size.  We dont have to machine the heads or case for larger cylinder and therefore keep case strength where we need it.  A 100 engine could be swapped out for the 120 with very little effort.  We do include a large carburetor in our FWF kits for the 120 engine.

Once assembled the engine is installed on our custom made dynamometer to test run and monitor running parameters such as oil pressure, temperatures, rpms, and torque.  These logs are kept on file for every engine we run.  We check the oil for unusual contaminants after the test run.
They are beautiful engines and make for a clean installation into your airplane.   The smoothness of the six cylinders and the safety that provides boosts your confidence as you fly.  The low cost and ease of maintenance allow for a big savings throughout the life of the engine.

This is the fourth run of this engine (2  hrs. break in) - once it is started I begin downloading engine data onto a laptop and then run the engine up to static RPM (@3000) to check for temperatures and torque.
