Thread: Can ya give me a hand here?

  1. #1

    Default Can ya give me a hand here?

    I normally post messages in the right place but not this time. Can someone on this board point me in the right direction?

    I am looking for manuals and technical info on Lycoming T53 L-1 turbine. I believe that this was the original turbine in the UH-1 Huey that put out 700+HP.

    Thanks,

    Bill Pearce

    PS, no they will not be used in the Thunder Mustang!

    Thanks for the links. I will see where they lead.

    Although the idea of a jet powered bicycle is intriguing and well within my fathers lunacy envelope, that is not the case. A friend purchased a twin turbine streamliner. Now we need to figure out how to start it (wink).

    Need a driver? I'm licensed to at least 265mph on the ground.

    License? we don't need no stinking license. Just strap yourself in, slam the little peddle on the right, and "F" the rest.

    Wayne, after doing a quick search on Google I think I might have your answer... it's a jet powered car The kind seen a the Bonneville salt flats no less. Guess we'll have to wait for Bill to confirm this but that's what my money is on.

    Right on Stevo. It's a land speed racing "car" for Bonneville, Muroc, and El Mirage.

    This is similar but not my friends http://www.teamvesco.com/car.htm. I think the late Don Vesco is the holder of the record around 460 mph.
