Firewall Forward Installation Kits

Firewall Forward Kits for Lycoming Engines

Description

MAKE IT EASY
OK, you've finished all that metal stuff on the empennage, wings and fuselage. Now it's time to hang the engine! You've got a choice: you can research, choose, order and install each piece of the engine installation separately. There's the baffles, the cable brackets, the oil cooler, the cable controls, the exhaust system, the alternator, the solenoids, the air filter, the…..well, you get the idea.

Or, you can order Van's new Firewall Forward Kit.

The kit includes virtually every component necessary to install the engine and make it fly. Not only all the big items are included, but the small, often overlooked, bits and pieces are there, too. For instance, all the fuel and oil hoses are included, professionally built and checked. The breather tube, often an afterthought, is ready to install. Order Van's Firewall Forward Kit for either a fixed-pitch installation, or buy the constant-speed installation which includes the propeller governor.
SEE THE EXAMPLE LIST BELOW.

CAUTION: There are engine combinations that occur in the field that don't occur in the Firewall Forward Kits listed below. An example is a "fuel injected 180hp vertical induction engine". For the closest fit for this particular engine you would use a carbureted (O-360) version of our Firewall Forward Kits, with some minor changes.

None of the Firewall Forward Kits are designed for the CONICAL style engine mounts. If you have one of these engines be sure to inquire about the necessary changes.

PLEASE if you have any doubt about your engine applicability CALL FIRST.

RV-6/6A builders can also use the RV-7/7A kits with minimal modification. Order part number "FF-6/6A ADDITIONS" which contains the additional parts and drawings needed to modify the RV-7/7A kits to work on
RV-6/6A's.

RV-7/7A builders who want to install a vertical induction IO-320 using the RV-7/7A O-320 mount and cowl must modify the lower cowl by removing the scoop, and installing the FAB-6- SCOOP- 360-1. The O-360 lower cowl will not work with the RV- 7/7A O-320 upper cowl that was designed for the O-320 engine on that airframe.

RV-9/9A owners who intend to use vertical draft fuel injected engines should be aware that the fuel injection throttle body will require a deeper scoop on the lower cowl half.  This scoop is available either by replacement of the bottom scoop on the standard O-320 cowls with a FAB-6-SCOOP-360-1 or at time of the finish kit order the substitution of the O-320 lower cowl half with: COWL, 6/6A BOT. O-360.

The RV-10 Firewall Forward Kits below can be ordered with or without a three lever throttle/prop/mixture quadrant part number "CT10-3". If you opt for the NON three lever quadrant, your engine control cables will be supplied as vernier style.

From December 2007, FWF kits DO NOT contain the wiring harness.
