Jimmy Tubbs, VP of Engineering at ECi, is truly a legend in aviation and an
encyclopedia of aircraft engine knowledge. Jimmy is also a very experienced
instrument pilot with thousands of hours in various single and multi-engine
airplanes. It was a pleasure to work with Jimmy in the ECi booth at Oshkosh
2005 and I am excited to be working with him on future improvements that will
put ECi TITAN®
KitEngines™ even farther above others.
The New ECiR
Sump and Cold Air Induction System
This will be available very soon from ECi. We will have a price
in about a month and we expect it to be very reasonable as all are ECi products.
Also pictured is the new TITANR EXPTM
fuel injection system that will be available in
a few months when testing is complete.

I received this beautiful kit engine from ECI in early
November. I decided to change from the original unfinished aluminum to candy purple powder coat.
It was applied to the crank
case, accessory case, valve covers and push rod tubes.
This new experimental engine has many improvements over all
other experimental engines and ECI has 60 years of experience manufacturing dependable
aircraft engine parts.
The crank gear has been torqued and the lock tab has been bent against the
head of the bolt to secure it in place
Ken from America's Aircraft Engines came over from Tulsa to look at the new ECI
engine and to give me a hand. Here he has just torqued the rods to the crank.
All ECI engine cases have 4 ports to enable you to add piston oiling nozzles for
Also, each case has 4 ports to add oil nozzles for cam lobe oilers.
The grooves in the above picture provide a path for the oil to return to the
inside of the crankcase instead of weeping out the top seam of the case as
sometimes happens with other engine cases.
Another feature of the ECI case is the grooves for O-rings to seal around the
through bolts to eliminate oil leaks.
Another great improvement ECI has made is the thrust washer between the front of
the crankshaft and the front of the case. This gives a steel bearing surface to
eliminate the wear to the case and provides better oiling to the crank thrust
surface. This is an option and must be specified
when you order.
The cam followers, O-rings, string, and bearings have been installed. The
forward nose bearings will be removed from the case after being marked (for
alignment) and then installed on the crank so the two case half's can be joined
10to1 Pistons not provided with the kit.
Idlers are installed ready for the gears.
Timing marks on gears all mated with #1 cylinder at top dead center.
Safe tied case bolts that are located inside the sump.
The cylinders, rear accessory cover, sump, oil filter, prop governor installed
and almost complete. I just need to install the dual electronic ignition and
that's it until I put it on the aircraft.

Joe is the Central Territory manager and Tim is the Western Territory manager
for ECI. Both are very knowledgeable about ECI aircraft engines and parts. You
can find them at most of the experimental aircraft fly-ins around the country.
