Today I visited Tim Hess to look at the Superior XP-360 parts that Tim will be assembling into the Mighty RV’s engine.
I was really impressed with Superior’s parts kit…everything organized very neatly.
It’s almost a shame to paint this beautiful gold-alodined crankcase, but Ellen and I have agreed that the crankcase will be painted red.
Here’s the Superior cold-air sump. I was impressed with the casting and milling, and Tim pointed out several areas where the Superior sump is better than the stock Lycoming part which embeds the intake tubes in hot sump oil.
