Crickey !!! I'm glad I never had to change the HT loom on that thing! 28 cylinders = 48 plugs and the leads to them. I never liked doing the earth leakage checks on the RR Griffon 12 cylinder jobbies on the Shackletons, so sod that lot!
Ta for the gen on the 2 stroke Capn J. I hadn't realised that 2 stroke radials existed?
I had a look at some other photos of the tri plane and some showed the port side with the rudder closed linkage. I use it as much as possible on my RC gliders because it is so much more positive. Dead easy to install too.
