The Togo is being prepared to gogo

Here at the hangar I have been hearing about the Togo and when is the Togo going to get its parts and get overhauled? So what is a Togo? Or a better  question would be where is Togo? Togo is a small country in the west Africa region reaching down to the coast and is slenderly seated between Ghana and Benin.

 I was not sure at first what a Togo was, I thought it was a type of aircraft engine that I had never heard of and that we were working on one. After further investigation I found out that it was the name of a country in west Africa and that is where the engine is going to after we are finished with it.

 The Togo engine is for a 206 Cessna that is being used for mission service with ABWE or Association of Baptists for World Evangelism.To find out more about ABWE and their ministry just click on the highlighted link.

 Here at MMS we have this engine in for an overhaul, this basically means that everything in the engine has been inspected and verified to be within serviceable condition or replaced with new parts. Josh who is our engine shop supervisor is heading up the project. He has been getting some help from Sarah Morris of Compass Aviation this past week. Sarah is working with Josh to gain some more engine experience that she can take with her on the world wide mission field.  We are very blessed to get to be a part of preparing airplanes and people. We truly do impact the world right here from Ohio. You will find below some pictures of this engine as well as a related map of Togo.

 

A view from the engine stand. A beautiful work of art in progress.

Josh is working on the quill shaft and Sarah is studying the cylinder and valve placement.

How is that valve coming Sarah?
Josh teaching Sarah how to properly hone out the cylinder.
