On the other hand, if there are more than several of these things being "retired" then they may be obtainable at auction or other millitary outlet?Peter
they were never very numerous..http://www.designation-systems.net/dusrm/m-155.html
Chuck, pardon my language, but that thing is Badass! ;-T Love it.-Joe
With the military changing over to diesel power (so that everything can run off a single fuel, Jet-A civilian fuel, or JP-5 (I think) military fuel), the Guzzi powered ones will be, if they haven't already been, converted to diesel or retired. Once that happens, there is no need for spares, and Guzzi will likely "retire" the tooling. Maybe we should get them to do one last run of heads for us before they do that. ::) :BEER:
I've never seen this way of holding a propeller. Just a coarse knurl on the prop hub, and a big hunker nut to squeeze it all together. :o No prop bolts at all.
Looks like one hell of an alternator on the nose of that engine.
Should have no trouble powering some electric gloves.. ;DYa know, I'll just *have* to make up something to bolt it to. I have a junk Mouser prop that can be bored to fit.. ~;
The ecu box reminds me of the early VW T III injection -- L-jetronic?
That's EXACTLY what I was thinking! You could make your money back Chuck... selling that alternator to an aspiring 2013 V7 owner who needs to power his full Gerbing suit, and have the ability to provide power for the entire campsite at a Guzzi rally! ;D
Ok, once you get the digital data, who you gonna get to make the heads? Cheap, of course.. ;D I used to do engineering modelmaking for GM back in another lifetime, and making 100 relatively complex parts from scratch is/was hellaciously expensive. I realize that things have changed since the 90s, but I'll bet it is still out of reach for us Guzzi Guys.Believe me, Joe.. I'm not trying to rain on your parade, and I hope I'm wrong.
Phil, I don't think anything I said even intimated that safety *wasn't* a concern. When I built this airplane 33 years ago (!) a crankshaft driven single ignition was the only thing available for a VW conversion. I eventually used a Dyna S driven from the same location as the distributor on a VW engine. That gives true dual ignition. A crank triggered Dyna S firing 10mm plugs could be retrofited to the Guzzi aero engine for dual ignition, but you'd have to carry two batterys for a true dual system. I would do that. A magneto is extremely reliable, and can be inspected, etc. Electronic ignition is reliable, too... but... it can suddenly fail without symptoms. I have never seen a magneto fail without talking to you...It's a moot point, anyway. The only reason to put the Guzzi in Mouser would be the novelty of doing it. There's no performance gain over my reliable ;D VW.Yep. ;D The midwest is an experimental aviation hotbed for a reason. That said, Mouser glides at 90mph, and an off airport landing would require picking a really good field to keep from pranging her.. ;)
Is the same p8 marelli as on first FI guzzi's like daytona and california 1000. But can be used with carbs too naturally.
Thanks, Paul! I was hoping GuzziDiag would talk to it. Great news.
Thanks for the info Chuck, Ive grown up in a world of system redundancy and any other way worries me.BTW the setup in the last set of photos looks like a "pusher" application to me.I think I'd prefer the exhausts facing into the airflow or the cooling is going to need some high drag ducting in a fwd facing installation.Can Guzzi heads be turned around and swapped to the opposite side and the cam changed to suit? Never really thought about it.Ciao

yes guzzidiag will talk t it, but you can't program it, the p8 has a chip that can be changed. So if you don't like the program, you need to find someone with an eprom reader/ burner to read it, then you can change it in tunerpro and burn the contents to a new chip. But leaving the injection on it, will give new problems where to fit the parts. I would start with carbs to keep it simple. For injection the 15m ecu is a better choice because it's small. But that needs an other wheel for the pickup, I suppose it's ready available from never v7/nevada. And the 15m can be programmed.
Super Lario.. ;D we don't need no steenkin monoshock.. Tonti rules! :BEER:
