130 Cooling system capacity

What is the liquid capacity of the 'stock' 130 cooling system (with the standard radiator)? I know there will be slight variances based on the way it was plumbed but I'm looking for real-world quantities. I received one gallon of Evans prep fluid with my FF kit but it obviously takes more than that, I'm just wondering how much more? That prep fluid isn't cheap and I'd rather not buy more than I have to, plus I'd have to dispose of it later. I can't find any reference to the quantity on the tech pages and haven't seen it on any of the videos (BTW I'm really tired of having to watch videos to ferret out tech specs and standards).

  • Been awhile since we added coolant, so I don't remember. Since you're planning to use Prep anyway, you might as well just fill with water, and then drain to measure the capacity.
  • 1.5 gallons. No need to fill the system to the max with prep fluid in order to absorb any moisture.

The engine “Know” what the temperature and manifold pressure is. From this, the correct amount of…"

"Thanks. How about the Turbo 195 - does it lean with altitude like the 130?

"Only if you would like to do so. The engine will start and warm up on its own."

"Thanks! I have another newbie question. Since the Viking engine is built to automotive tolerances regarding piston to cylinder clearance - is preheating required in cold weather?"

"Hi Bob. Yes you are right. The manual says maximum of 15% but all auto gas here in Brazil has 25% or 27% ethanol. Since I am monitoring closely and I had no issues with 90 hours of flight and it is a very clean fuel, the only concern would be the…"

"thanks jose. isn't 25% a little high for this engine?"

"Hi Bob. My 110 engine has 90hs. I use auto gasoline here in Brazil with 25% ethanol. It has 95 octane. I used 100 LL only once just to test. Saw no noticable difference."

"Chane, sorry, I misread your name.
I did some experiments with the coil spring, compressed it with a hydraulic press on a scale until I didn't dare compress any more.

"Thanks Eric,
I started my 801 in 2008. I’m getting close to finishing it now and my original bungee is sagging. I would rather change it for a spring than buy a bungee that I’ll have to change every year.  I just wanted to make sure the Viking…"
