Goldwings Yak 55

Goldwings Yak 55 engine installation

This project involved the removal of the original fire wall as the MacKay engine being fitted was a longer than the usual engines  fitted to this airframe. A custom manifold was manufactured to suit the engine and exhaust can.

To ensure there was sufficient cooling for both engine and pipe, a baffle was fitted into the cowl to direct airflow over the cylinder head and then over the exhaust.
