Sorry, mis-spoke earlier. Said air bubbles, should have said vapor bubbles instead. Moot point however, your engines can't run while ingesting a quantity of vapor bubbles either.

Also, there was a pro-photographer out at the field the day i had my engine failures, and he got this shot of me on downwind with the first flameout at 300'...

over at daffys yesterday and we ripped apart the troubled engine. here is what we found after taking the prop and hub off... that's the front seal in two pieces!!!! we ripped apart the back (much harder) and replaced the rear seal too, but it was in much better shape. now to put it back on the wing with a new 40/17 prop and see what we see...
