Can anyone give me any tips or rules of thumb for getting the C-210 slowed down w/o shock cooling the engine? Like 2 inches per 2 min (example) And how far out to start slowing down when your up? How about for a Baron? Similar?
tathepilot said:being that we are on the subject. i fly a ce210, i believe it is a 78' model.
turbo, intercooler, factor oxygen, i forget the model number.
i have a problem with the aircraft let me explan.
the first start of the day, 99% of the time works no problem.
let's say i fly for 1 hour, land, and than 15-20 minutes later, i have trouble starting..
i get mixed answers on how i should be doing the start..
the owner that we bought the a/c from told me to do the following:
use the fuel pump to get the fuel flow needle jumping (mixture rich), than proceed to start with the mixture lean, than advance mixture on start....
many other people tell me to use no fuel pump....
im wondering how others start a warm/semi-warm 210.... i love this a/c it is a great bird, but i hate the thought of killing the battery, and i have a few times..
Yep. With the n/a IO-520, I usually tried to keep it above 1,000 rpms ...one time I didn't and the engine quit right after landing ...took at least 10 minutes before I could restart, sitting there barely off of the runway ...probably gave the tower guys a good laughblzr said:Once you get used to the 210, they are beautiful to fly and are quite simple. The biggest problems I saw with new freight pilots was just after landing after a medium or long flight. Just about the time the plane was slow enough to turn off the runwy, the engine would quit. It can be aweful hard to restart and rather embarassing if there is traffic behind you.
An old 210 guy gave me and the other pilots a little tip that really helped. After touchdown on your rollout, just give the throttlt a little turn to the right while you are breaking to keep the rpm's up around 1500 or so and then let the plane idle for about 30 seconsd before you cut the mixture. After that, I in't have any problems with it.

The proceedure that worked best for me was to hit the boost pump for about 15 seconds with the mixture full rich to get the pressure up. Then, I'd start cranking with the throttle cracked and mixture back at idle cutoff, and start advancing it up to full rich while cranking. The engine would usually light off when the mixture got between about half to 3/4 of the way up. When she fired off I'd just advance the throttle and keep it running until she smoothed out. Worked just about every time as long as the battery was good and hot. I would think that the same or similar proceedure would work on the 210.
