John Worm is making great progress on his Warner 185X. The first motor is coming off of the CNC machine. There is a Warner 185X Group on Facebook where John posts updates and answers questions. The following pictures are were posted on that Group page.
You can also get more information on his web page.
Cases are off the machine, first and second operations. Just have to do the bores for jugs and lifter guides. Induction housing jig is on the machine right now, and starting to run them by Friday. It’s been a long road to bring the Warner 185 back, but we’re finally in production!

Some antique aircraft trivia for today. According to the Juptner books, the Monocoupe D-145 and the Luscombe Phantom share the same airfoil, the NACA 2412.
