CAMDRIVE 500+ PSRU
Propeller Speed Reduction Units (PSRU's) are also part of the Firewall Forward product line. The CAMDRIVE 500+ PSRU, is designed to handle up to 700 hp.
The design and and build up of this unit is the result of years of hands on experience dealing with PSRU's by both Butler and Wilson. Bell Housings are designed to fit the Chevrolet V-8 blocks being used by many builders of the Fighter Escort Wings Mustang, Lancair IV and IVP, Express, Piaggio, replica warbirds, and others.
This gearbox, when matched to a GM engine, is an economical re-engine solution for owner operated and experimental category agricultural spray planes currently using 0-470 and IO520 engines. The fuel savings by using MOGAS instead of AVGAS makes conversion payback in months instead of years. Engine overhaul costs are a fraction of Continental and Lycoming engines. Firewall forward weights are within a few pounds. Some cowl mods may be necessary. Air conditioning is easily added. Contact us for information on complete firewall forward packages.
