Here's some before and after photos of my Lycoming UAB (from 1933 Dodge Model 301). Please bear with me while I figure out this uploading process..... - Dave Triano LY1.jpg

another before, Port side view. It's been a lot of fun so far working my way through the engine, and I look forward to some warmer weather so I can fire it up...(3 feet of snow on the ground still), and should have the boat back in the water by Spring - Best regards and Happy New Year to all - Dave Triano before2.jpg

I particularly appreciated seeing the pictures of your Lycoming UAB. You certainly have done a fine job. I am building a 1931 replica of a Hacker/Monk hydroplane. These were raced in the early 1930's in the 125 ci class. One of the common engines used was the Lycoming UA and UAB. I picked up a UA a couple of years ago and have it partially rebuilt. The engine was missing the starter/generator assembly, the heat exchanger for the oil cooler was shot and the fuel pump was missing. Hopefully, I will have it running by spring. Any thoughts on the rebuild or info on parts would be appreciated.

Hi Dave-

Thanks for the kind words. Quite a few Lycoming marine parts can be had from the Ben Lowell family (although Ben has recently passed away, I understand the family is continuing to sell the parts), and their number is 810-626-4072. Was your starter/generator the 'Owens Dyneto' type? Really hard to find, I've never seen one under the rocks I've been turning over... By the heat exchanger do you mean the actual piping assembly inside of the oil cooler cover? Might be something that can be fabricated by careful effort. I'm currently working hard on the starter, I want to keep it 6V, but the darn thing won't turn the motor adequately with the plugs in.....aaah, 6V....!
Best - Dave Triano

Dave T. Curious that Lycoming didn't see fit to provide a scavenge tube from the crank case breather to the carb intake/flame suppressor.Best install a bilge blower under your engine box for safe measure......

Hi Bruce-

Thanks for the heads up. I fully intend to get the system well ventilated, and this Dodge has a simple 'doghouse' over the motor, very easy to keep open during starting. I've heard a couple of other 'kaboom' stories from older mechanics up here, no desire to repeat that historical aspect...:)

By the way, just got my wiring finished, looks pretty good. I used repro vintage wire and components from a guy named Bill Lopoulos, his business is called 'Magneto Parts', in Tyngsboro, MA. He has a website, don't have the link offhand, but a quick google of his name should find it. Great prices, and friendly service. Even has hinge top oiler cups.

The topsides have just gone into paint, hopefully I'm on track to launch the boat in a couple of months.

Best regards - Dave Triano

Just fired up the Lycoming UAB for the first time in 30 years for two brief runs, it did great! It's still quite tight, so I had to turn it over with a 1/2" drill motor with a 'T' fitted to engage the one way cog on the front of the crank. After a bit of priming the fuel pump (that's what the two port on top of the AC pump are for, I figured out....:)) and carb, it started right up. Runs smooth, I just have a bit of carb work to straighten out, and I have to re-gasket the oil cooler (leaks cooling water readily). Really fun to hear it run, a very raspy, spitting aircraft type of sound to it. Happy Day!
