Turbomeca Astazou

This engine was purchased along with the propeller hub and several spare
bits and pieces. The intention was to get it operational with a propeller
installed. However unfortunately finding the correct parts such as the prop
shaft proved very time consuming despite being able to visit some wide
and unusual sources that actually operate the engine. (the engine must have
its prop shaft or a complicated test adaptor installed as there are several seals
on it and internal galleries for lubrication of the front gearbox brg and
actuation of the prop pitch change ram, a splined adaptor and the front
gearbox bearing itself) Digging around for all of this took weeks and weeks
and ultimately proved beyond my patience level and available schedule at the
time so after a great deal of mulling I let it go. It eventually found its way onto
a wing and to my great pleasure I have since seen it run installed with a prop
fitted. The engine systems looked a lot more complicated than they were.
It was all quite straight forward, just different in places that's all.
