Hello,

Can someone point me to a reference for the Merlin 500-600-700 series engines?

I'm going to be flying the "Vintage Wings of Canada" Hurricane Mark IV in 2011, and it has a 500 engine.

I'd like to know more about it -- my practice when checking out on a new vintage aircraft is to start with the engine.

I've put together a thick file of reference material for the standard marks of the Merlin, but 500 data seems hard to come by.

Thanks,

Dave

Dave,

I own a 500-29 engine which I believe is the same engine installing in the VWC Hurry.

A good general manual on the single stage engine is TSD293. Readily available on the web.

You are welcome to PM me for more information and operational points.

Regards,

David.
