Joe Block's Lycoming Powered Glastar

Power comes from a Lycoming O-320 engine fitted with an SDS EM-3 4F driving 50 lb/hr Delphi injectors and one electronic ignition pack firing NGK spark plugs plus one magneto to fire the bottom set of plugs. Joe says the engine starts and runs great using only the throttle (does not use the mixture knob). Some certified airplane drivers have inquired to install this system on their planes but alas they have to stay 50 years behind the times. Joe has 270 hours on the installation so far with several long trips under his belt.
