    Nice, what can you tell us about the PSRU gearbox?
    Measure twice, cut once...
    scratch head, shrug, shim to fit.

    we after such a conversion with the rotation of the engine realized that it was difficult, and developed their own gearbox with a belt. Now that the engine is put on the plane, you do not need to turn it. (friends, forgive me for my English, do not speak fluently, I use an online translator)

    Gearbox with gears we design now, but it's not basic, the reducer with the belt is easier, so we stick to it.
    And this is how Honda Fit looks like with a reducer for an airplane ....

    How heavy is the belt reduction drive? (and your English is fine)

    The Corvair is a great choice, I worked for William as a design engineer in the mid 00's I built one for my project. Engine is done and has some test stand run time on it, airplane project is still in the works.

    Beyond the excellent work that Mark did on his site for his Corvair build I Details on the engine build (start to end) can be found on my web site https://gouldaero.com/0-164-corvair-...-engine-build/

    William @ www.flycorvair.com & .net is the way to go if your wanting to go this route.

    Hope this helps,
