August 2021 – I found this article, WARMING THE 0-200 by Harry Barr (EAA 7134), from August 50 years ago to be very interesting. The first thing that caught my eye was that the author came from Guelph, Ontario, where I trained for my PPL. I never met him, but wonder if any of our readers ever did. He seems to have been quite the engine whiz.

If you want to get involved in doing this to your engine, read on — fascinating stuff!
