they exist these usually show up when we perform a Vibration
Spectrum Analysis of your engine/propeller configuration. The result of a mechanical problem like
those in the table above is always the same; it just won't balance
beyond a certain point, however even then a significant improvement can
still usually be
made in the overall vibration.
supply you with a copy of the vibration spectrum chart and printed reports
and will analyze the results for you.
go beyond just balancing your prop - using an incredibly
sensitive analyzer and using 2 sensors - at both front and rear
of your engine allows us to accurately display and pinpoint
other most causes of vibration in your engine installation. It's also sometimes magnified by worn or hardened engine
mounts or contact between the engine and the cowlings. It is
a very valuable additional service for no extra cost! It's
one reason we pride ourselves on being the best in the business!
of the vibration we find is caused by an
unbalanced propeller or spinner and can be corrected by adding small compensating
weights (balancing). Even if the vibration is quite severe. These weights weigh only a few grams but
can make a
But won't having my propeller dynamically balanced hide or
mask other engine problems?
Not at all - an engine with an internal problem causing unusual vibration will not respond to
dynamic balancing in the same way as a healthy one. Once the
prop/spinner assembly is correctly balanced, any remaining
imbalance above normal is easier to identify.
Our Spectrum Analysis Reports
are extramely useful
in helping track down an internal engine fault. Keeping them on file
allows you to track changing condition in your engine over time.
