Re: Just Bought 2003 156 Selespeed 2.0 JTS Veloce
be not too afraid of Selespeed, my 156 has done 93K and no problems, just check ss oil regularly.
Just a week ago I had an engine stall after a stop, could not start for a couple of minutes. Read out with Examiner indicated
"speed engine open circuit intermittent", after a reset and cleaning of the gasvalve house and butterfly, and relearning the system i.e. bleeding (which is done by the Examiner system) all is ok ! had nothing to do with selespeed. Too slow idle caused this problem, engine now idles at around 900 rpm (previously 500)
p.s. Examiner is magic
Rarebear 'fastest piston engine airplane in the world' 4000 hp twinspark (!) radial engine.
Thta's what we call an ENGINE>>>>
