Kinner R-55 Oil Pressure

Recommended Posts

We have a Kinner with the oil pressure on the low side, so have adjusted it and are about to test fly. 

Straight after start of a cold engine what are you guys seeing for the oil pressure?

In the cruise once at normal temperatures what pressure do you get?

We are using Aeroshell W100 Plus. No oil cooler.

 

Thanks

The R55 when cold will have high oil pressure until warm. Once warm it should be around 80 PSI. It's not uncommon to see 100 PSI or greater when oil is cold. The R56 will run 80 PSI hot or cold.

  You should be running 120 oil , not 100.
