Roger that, I work in Aircrat maintenence. If you want to be an A&P they are always hiring, timing is important though. If you want to fly than if you were hired it would be as an engineer at first.
There is always work in the bush, if you are serious about flying than that is the ticket to hours.
Technically A&P's are considered unskilled labor as you can get your cert's with OJT, or just having the airframe part or the powerplant can get you in the door. The powerplant is the easier of the two to get first.

Damn fellah, that pic of you is almost as disturbing as the one RBJ used to use of him paddling off.

Yes, another dependable Pratt&Whitney engine /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
That is a ATR42, that cargo door on it is brand new. The STC passed and all it needs now is 50 hours of proving flights with the FAA.
It is the only one like it in the world, fed-ex is interested in that plane so look for more of them in the future. More than likely they will be ATR72's than the 42.

I thought so. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I work the engines on the C-130 Hercules. What is the HP on some of those? HP is not a good indicator of the T-56, but it pumps out about 4,000bhp for a -7, and nearly 5,000bhp for a -15. (these are equivelent shaft hp) Torque is our measure. -7 usually won't make or exceed the max torque, but the -15 can usually go up to 19,600 ft lbs of torque. That is the wings limit.

However, the Double Wasp is still awesome, and it hauls my virtual Jug around very nicely! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Now if I could only find a way to mount a T-56 on my Jug..... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I am not 100% certain but I think it is a PW 120 with 2000bhp. The 72's are rated at 2400bhp.

I have a Magneto that is going to be scrapped, I will take the cover off and snap some photo's for you tomarrow and post them late tomarrow night.
You dont really disassemble a magneto, those coils and magnets are wound tight!

It is a one mag set up that acts as two. The magneto is not that complicated, it is really similar to one you would see on a toy car engine.
In the middle is the rotating armature and magnets in a metal casing. On the left and right top/bottem of the magneto you have four coils. The L1 and L2 coils on the top and the R1 and R2 coils on the bottem (could be reversed I forget)with a metal cover over the coil/armature.
It's just that simple.
The duel mag set up on the early R2800's were a bad set up from the get go and caused poor spark and timing. Fouled plugs and pi$$ poor performance changing different altitudes led to the single mag duel distributor set up during the war.
The mag operates as two seperate units but in one housing, lol.So you could say it is both but technically it is one.
I will post pics tomarrow night.
