Please be sure to include documentation with anything you send us. There should be a work order form in the box. Either download this from the forms page, or call and ask the Service Writer to email one to you. If you are already in our system, the form he sends you will have some of the information already filled out for you. In that case, please make any corrections/updates appropriate, scan & email or fax the form back to the Service Writer, and put the hard copy in the crate with your engine/component.
If the mailing address we have on record for you is different from the shipping address for the engine, please state that and include the shipping address with the documentation.
If you are sending an engine, please make sure you have put the engine log book in the crate with the engine. We cannot begin work on your project until we have that logbook. It is also wise to put the logbook into a Ziploc bag or some other water/oil proof container to protect it.
Please be sure all fluids are drained from the engine, and that the engine is properly secured in its crate. We cannot take responsibility for damage that is done in transit.
Take the carburetors off the engine, box them separately, and place them in the crate with the engine. Any other components that are sent should be individually wrapped before placing them in the crate with the engine. And again, please be sure to include your engine logbook.
Be sure to bolt this engine down to the bottom of the crate somehow. Movement is likely to cause expensive damage. Any other components that are sent should be individually wrapped before placing them in the crate with the engine. And again, please be sure to include your engine logbook.
Bolt the engine to the crate somehow – movement is likely to cause expensive damage. Be sure to include the TCU and as much of the wiring harness and sensors as is practical. If you have significantly altered the wiring harness for your Experimental Aircraft, don’t bother with the harness – we’ll use a spare. The thing to consider is that the more of the engine wiring and sensors that we can test, the more confident you can be of having a trouble-free reinstallation. And again, please be sure to include your engine logbook.
