PostPosted: Sat Feb 04, 2017 4:32 am    Post subject: Engine plugs to identify Reply with quote

Guys

In the back of my Lycoming IO-540, near the Oil Filter, there are 2 plugs that I’m not sure what they are for.

I’m referring to those 2 which have the red female caps in the annexed photo.

May I have your help to identify them?

Thanks
Carlos

The big one is the mechanical tach drive. They sell caos for that if it leaks oil. Many planes I see don't have the cap and don't leak.
The small one I would need to see with the cap off. It is possibly an oil pressure line port.

The small (lower) one is a male AN6 flared tube fitting, which I intend to plug with a AN929 plug.

An AN6 fitting is not small. They are used for thinks like hoses to the oil cooler., Have you looked at the plans, FF1 if I remember correctly points out all the fittings you install. Then check the FF section for oil system to be sure you have all those fittings identified.

From looking at an overhaul manual, it looks like sometimes that port is used for a spring-and-ball oil cooler bypass, and sometimes for an oil cooler return. It's too small for that in this case, I think. If you have both of your AN8 lines already in for the oil cooler, then this should get capped.

That’s the problem Kelly
The Van’s manual doesn’t explain all the fittings I found in the engine.
I did install the oil system according to FF section, but after connecting the oil pressure and both Oil cooler in and out, these 2 plugs are free.
Well, the higher one is indeed the Tachometer connection, which I will not use because I’m using the Garmin RPM sensor in the Magneto.
So, I think I’ll leave the lower one with this red cap, or perhaps close it with the AN929 plug.

Thanks

Indeed I have both lines for the Oil Cooler connected according Van’s manual, so I will cap this.

If anyone else knows better what this is for, I am all ears …

Definitely DO NOT just leave the red cap on the oil port. You want a strong cap for it.

I agree. If you can't find a purpose for it in the overhaul or parts manual, definitely needs an AN cap. Plastic caps are only for shipping. They don't hold pressure and won't tolerate heat.

Ok, just did it!
And for the Tachometer connection I won’t use, where can I buy a cap for this?

Thanks Jesse



The small (lower) one is a male AN6 flared tube fitting, which I intend to plug with a AN929 plug.

The big one is the mechanical tach drive. They sell caos for that if it leaks oil. Many planes I see don't have the cap and don't leak.



The small one I would need to see with the cap off. It is possibly an oil pressure line port.

Guys

In the back of my Lycoming IO-540, near the Oil Filter, there are 2 plugs that I’m not sure what they are for.

I’m referring to those 2 which have the red female caps in the annexed photo.

May I have your help to identify them?

Thanks
Carlos

Ok, just did it!
And for the Tachometer connection I won’t use, where can I buy a cap for this?

Definitely DO NOT just leave the red cap on the oil port. You want a strong cap for it.

That’s the problem Kelly
The Van’s manual doesn’t explain all the fittings I found in the engine.
I did install the oil system according to FF section, but after connecting the oil pressure and both Oil cooler in and out, these 2 plugs are free.
Well, the higher one is indeed the Tachometer connection, which I will not use because I’m using the Garmin RPM sensor in the Magneto.
So, I think I’ll leave the lower one with this red cap, or perhaps close it with the AN929 plug.

Thanks

An AN6 fitting is not small. They are used for thinks like hoses to the oil cooler., Have you looked at the plans, FF1 if I remember correctly points out all the fittings you install. Then check the FF section for oil system to be sure you have all those fittings identified.
