I couldn't wait for the weather to cool off. It did get down to 103, so I gave the rings a 5 min break in time and put one 10 min flight on the plane.

It has way more power than it did this morning before the ring change. It was about 87 degrees when I flew at sunup and I couldn't get good vertical performance. This afternoon I had unlimited vertical at 103 degrees. The hesitation on takeoff at the midrange transition was also gone.

When I replaced the rings, I set the needles back to the factory setting and didn't adjust them yet, so the engine is probably running a tad rich.

Love the new rings.

My DLE 40 Twin engine has not had good compression from the start. It did pick up a little but not nearly as much as the DLE 35 that I took off the plane at flt #150. I had a total of 248 flights on the plane today. I decided that with 16 hours of run time on this engine, it isn't getting any better.

I had a Bowman ring for a DLE 20 from a couple of years ago that I never put on an engine, so I just got a second ring and put them on today. The compression is way better already and I haven't even run the engine.

One thing I noticed during the ring swap was that the right cylinder had a lot of carbon on it and none on the left.

Can't wait to see how it runs when the weather cools off a little.

08-18-19.....This morning we confirmed where the source of another water irrigation was leak at the field....the cover broke the incoming pipe where it feeds into the secondary irrigation valve that feeds all of the fields lawn irrigation system. The primary water valve is shut off that allows water to this secondary valve so we can get the repairs done. There is water to the sink and drinking fountain though. We cut out both inlet and outlet sections of the PVC to remove the valve so that Bob McDuff can make the repairs for us. Should be able to resume watering the main field perhaps Monday night if all goes well.......

Last thing for today - installed the gear on the mounting block. I bedded it with Hysol and that takes around 18-24 hours to setup in this heat. Longer in the winter. I was going to use JB Weld but since I had plenty of Hysol I used that. Hysol is likely as good or better than JB Weld. In this application  anyway.
