    Rebuild RescueRebuild Rescue

    This week on Rebuild Rescue we’re diving right back into our Cessna 401 project! After over 15 years of being exposed to the elements outside we will finally be bringing this airplane inside our new hanger to start the cleaning and repair of the engines!

    After the insanely disgusting job of blowing as much bird debris out of the exposed engine as possible, the engine is finally starting to look clean, and the turbo is accessible enough to get the oil feed line off and start working on getting the turbo to spin freely.

@Dick Trickles We means more than one person, you see. I took that to mean that a few of the people involved here have got an A&P license. Your repetition of the question looks like you're setting up a little "gotcha" about the presenter here not having a license but, as I'm sure you know, he is entitled to work on the aircraft under the supervision of a certified person.

I can honestly say watching your first video I thought to myself, “of course you get it started, otherwise you wouldn’t post this video.” Seeing the outcome made me genuinely appreciate the fact that you bring us, the viewers, along for the entire journey. I’ve had a YouTube account for over a decade now, and have only subscribed to about half a dozen channels. I subscribed to yours on the spot. I look forward to seeing you get this bird in the air!

Twin Cessnas are notorious for having rotted out engine mount beams caused by exhaust leaks. There were some airworthiness directives that addressed the problems. It's quite an extensive project to replace those beams as they extend back to the spar inside the wing.

@Conrad †† to Conrad as I have posted before I already dropped this channel in my opinion Rebuild Rescue and it s presenter are incredible in the legal sense that aircraft model without the main Spar repairs by certified rebuilders and amateur tinkering with it only makes it worse as for the engines they have a maximum service life and regular service interval that must be maintained for airworthiness all this takes beaucoup bucks the question is does he have them already or is he going to use yours and mine?? He is a quote monetizing content provider!!! So is your local Philharmonic Orchestra so is your local movie theater so is the nearest bar and strip club so is your TV and radio not my dollars to any, not today I can't spare it cqcq over and out

@Charles G Stockmeister I'm not sure that is fair, it is entirely possible that he is the local aviation mechanic, he got a financial backer off the back of the large number of views, one whothen agreed to either fund or supply partly repairable airframes for him to restore, they monetise the airframes they monetise the onsale - it could be the owners of the airport for all you know. I know you say they are in his name but that may be just a contractual thing to allow him to (legit) do the videos, then sell them.

Awesome channel! I know nothing about airplanes but I find this to be most interesting, especially the fact that someone would be willing to take on a project like this! A bit of what I hope is constructive criticism, however. I believe that your viewers would be well served by you giving a little more credence to safety, and especially the proper use of appropriate PPE. I follow other channels of this nature, car/truck rescues, etc., and you are not alone in this regard. I would hope that there would be some younger folks subscribing to channels of this nature and this may be the only exposure they get to safe work practices. Please keep up the good work!

Hey man, this is a pretty awesome undertaking. Your other videos I have watched from time to time with the vehicles reminded me of what my grandfather did in the last 20-30 years of his life or so, before there was even internet. It's kind of hard for me to watch those, cause I still miss him, and those vids remind me a lot of the few times I went with him to do those things as a kid. But airplane engines? Wow man. I decided to finally subscribe and I wanna see you get this free plane. Remember your goggles and mask. Yup, I know, it's a pain. But take it from someone that has had glass/metal shards repeatedly bounce off his goggles (and some even stuck into them) when repairing technology stuff....

After hearing comments that someone, with aviation knowledge and experience, had the forethought to take the numbers off the tail wing, and used it to identify this plane was brilliant. Your comments concerning that 'this plane' had not flown is probably correct, but the missing log books, might also be attached to the phantom plane that is using this planes' identification numbers.

Vor 3 Monate
Chris T
Chris T

I doubt that happened. The Flight Tracking websites are notorious for "phantom" flights, especially with aircraft that have shorter registration numbers because when flying VFR, ATC will sometimes "shorten" the registration they put in the system since it's not required to have the full one in or put the wrong one in and not correct it because it's all done "on the fly" and at the end of the day doesn't really matter that much.

Hey Brother, two things. First, a pressure steamer is the way to go with cleaning that bird. Do the entire outside, from top down, then do the engine areas. Second, the very best penetrating solution is something you make at the shop. 1 part acetone to 1 part transmission fluid. Steam clean the turbos and soak it with that solution. They'll break free.

I am really interested to see what happens when you get it to fire after freeing the turbo bearings with penetrating oil. I feel like there is a good chance we will see something akin to what you see in those high powered diesel trucks exploding on dynos. It might be wise to watch some of those videos, so everyone on your team knows where not to stand when you do go to fire it up for sure. If it were me, I would remove the propellers also, just in case.

thats just a bad choice for this plane, very expensive for what can be done with a pressure washer or sand blaster, the reason they use that on classic cars is because the rubber and plastic parts are not made anymore, you cant buy them, instead you have to preserve everything you can. Everything is still available to buy for these engines, waste of money dry-ice blasting.

In case no other A&P’s mentioned it already, I seem to remember seeing two leads running to at least one of the mags. That would indicate to me that they are shower of sparks ignition rather than impulse coupled. Bright side, no impulse couplings to stick or fail. Downside: there’s a vibrator box which sends the “shower of sparks” through the retard points for starting; this all relies upon battery power, and upon another set of points within that box. So, rebuilding the mags may not be enough. Also, that is generally the left mag which has that system. The right mag should be off for starting unless it also has a starting circuit, which I haven’t seen, but is possible. My point here being, for the sake of making the engine run, you could rebuild/repair the LH mag, make sure that the shower of sparks box is working, and fire it up on the LH mag only. Once it’s running throw the RH mag switch on and see if it works. To test that start box, disconnect the starter cable and hit the start button with the master on. You should hear a high frequency “buzz” from wherever it’s located on that airplane. My guess being somewhere in the engine nacelle.

@1one3 Racing Expecting it to be flight ready only by the efforts of this guy is not logical I agree. But after getting the engines running and taking the ownership of the plane, he may find some sponsors to raise money to work on it Or he could sell it (at a reasonable price) to someone who would be willing to spend money to make it airworthy (again only if the price is right). Getting this airplane for free will be a huge head-start and will bring up opportunities. Let's see where it is going to go.

As an aircraft engineer I'm watching this with the peverse thought that at some point realisation is going to kick in about the AD and also the amount of corrosion you're going to have to address. This plane is write off. But the engines might be good for a speedboat! Now there's an dea worth thinking about.

@Rav3nX I agree. The manuals and supervision is what is missing is my point. Unlicensed guys can be just as smart and do just as good work, sometimes better. But I agree with you. If that makes sense

@tcepilot I'm talking about random people, with no licenced supervision, no training in working on aircraft just 'figuring' it out. It's a very very bad idea. You can't be serious it's just 'fine'. DOM of a large helicopter company.

Been waiting on a follow up video on this 401, great video. I keep reminding myself that you are just trying to get it running, the A&P side of me keeps depressing me with the expense of what it would take to get it flying again. As far as it being dirty, I bet some of the Radial engine guys that work or have worked on the big ones are probably saying "that's not dirty", I know for myself, having worked on a lot of P&W JT9D engine equipped airplanes, they get pretty grimy under the cowls, and if there isn't a puddle of oil under the engine, bring out a case of oil, and start adding. Abandoned airplanes cry out to airplane guys, they look so sad just sitting and rotting away, as a mechanic you ask yourself, "could I make her fly again", they pull at your conscience. You see, pilots fly airplanes, but mechanics make them fly, it would be difficult to scrap one that hasn't been wrecked or crashed.

@Antwan1398 as you know he did not look into the inside of the plane yet and he has to put fix the wings on inside which is going cost he $75.000 alone each Chair and carpet and window its all the little things that are going add up fast what time frame do you think it will take him to have that plane ready 1 year more and its going be hard work and will it ever be fit to fly? i hope he makes a lot of money but i would never fly that plane once he done bad feeling in my gut the plane going brake a part this is going brake then that part way to old and to save money he wont test them or replace them.

Love this project! I flew a 421 in the 1980's - the pressurized big brother of your soon to be airplane. I'm sure you will get the engine to 'run' although that's a long way from getting this bird airworthy, I would bet you can do that too. Well worth it, these are really nice airplanes. Best of luck. Oh, and please get some decent overalls, gloves, masks and eye protection.

@John Hogan actually you're wrong somebody has to have a license there has to be paperwork associated with any parts put on the airplane... That's the magic...he's not representing himself as an average shade tree mechanic he's working on an airplane and he's doing things way out of the scope of an owner... You know if you pull your head out of your ass there's a whole world out there.

@Dick Trickles i dont think he expects to get in flying. Not for nothing, i dont suspect it will. I dont think he suspects he could get much for it if he sold it either. You know what i know, and he KNOWS full and well? All the click through, likes, subs, and every hating comment you give him fuels that sweet revenue he gets from YouTube. If you understood The algorithm and YT monetization like you do planes, you would understand the reason to undertake this pointless project. Cause guess what? Not everyone has your experience. Most people dont know jack shit about aeroplane maintenance. Its an interesting topic “barn find plane” will definitely get alot of clicks. And in HIS business, clicks make money. if you KNOW they’ll never let the bird fly, then why hate so much? So what if he does it or he’s got a circus car full of trained mechanic monkeys. who cares? Its content on YouTube, and all the hatful comments you’ve made in this comment section, makes HIM money.

As Mr Honey said, I also found Part 1 and subscribed with the intent on watching this whole series before going back to view your other content. Quick poke about a comment you made in Pt 2 Time 19:40'sh with regard to perhaps needing a vacuum. I've worked on cars for years, and I'm also in the North East (Canada). I can tell you, a vacuum is ALWAYS NECESSARY, lol. As is a compressor to blow out those tiny spaces, nooks, and crannies. However, I'd highly recommend using that Tug again to drag that "guano" infested thing outside to blow it off and wear a tyvec suit with full mask. You don't want to be doing that in that pristine shop/hanger. Going back to the episode to see how you progress. 🤞👍
