Under the cowl part temps

Safety Officer

Recommended Posts

Just for fun,


The other day I wanted to know what the under the cowl temps were on two parts. The ignition modules and the reg/rec because 170F for the modules are a killer and after shut down there is no real place for heat to escape.


I used a couple sets of temp strips on each. The ignition modules at their hottest which I assume was sitting for a few minutes after landing with no appreciable air flow was 130F. The reg/rec was 115F. These temps for the CT are well within any problem areas for the Rotax parts where heat can cause failures.
