Tee Dee The CEF TE Visits the Kennedy Space Center

Post  Sig Skyray on Mon Jun 06, 2016 7:19 pm

Photos from the TE's visit to KSC. But first, some preliminary and interesting formalities from Wikipedia:

The John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) is one of ten National Aeronautics and Space Administration field centers, and is NASA's Center of Excellence for launch and payload processing systems.  Located on the east coast of Florida, KSC is adjacent to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
KSC has been NASA's primary launch center of human spaceflight since December 1968. Launch operations for the Project Mercury, Project Gemini all the numerous Saturn/Apollo missions, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs were carried out from Kennedy Space Center and managed by KSC.
Located on Merritt Island, Florida, the center is north-northwest of Cape Canaveral on the Atlantic Ocean.

There are about 700 facilities grouped across the center's 144,000 acres. Among the unique facilities at KSC are the 525 ft tall Vehicle Assembly Building (the VAB) for stacking NASA's largest rockets, Operations and Checkout Building which houses the astronaut crew quarters, and 3-mile-long Shuttle Landing Facility.

Nicholas and I were honored and humbled to host the TE here in Central Florida.  We put 3 runs on her for a total of about 12 minutes with our high RPM being recorded around 19,000 with the 5x3 prop. We were using Cox 25% nitro fuel. There's an engine run video on the previous page of this thread.

Long live the traveling engine and the CEF!

Greg & Nicholas

(Sorry for some of the engine pics lack of focus!)

Fantastic report. I can't think of a better place to show off the Traveling Cox Tee Dee .049. Maybe we should try alcohol, LOX, and castor oil. Call it Redstone Model Engine Fuel
Thanks Greg and Nick.
Rusty

I could do it again. I've built three planes that it could go in since the first time round. Besides, I forgot to write anything in notebook the first time.

So I added some goodies to the kit. I added a pressure backplate, bored and polished venturi, two GloBee flat coil heads, and a red Valentine spinner.

I bored the Venturi to 9/64 then polished to a mirror finish.

I replaced the used head with a NOS high compression head.

I also replaced the piston. There were stress fractures starting around the top of the piston where the ball socket base is. It was in need of a reset but it was too late for that.

So it’s ready for its second tour. Get signed up!!!!!

Whoever wants it I can send it out.

Amazing Jason, simply amazing. I love the whole presentation as I do with all your offerings. But I am so unworthy of that engine. I'm waiting for a plain old .049 maybe slightly scrubbed up and neatly packaged Babe Bee.
