Harry, aircraft engines are shoes from the factory with these installed
if the engine is not going to go in an aircraft within a month or two.
They remove moisture in the cylinders, where most moisture is produced
and collects. The ready of the engine is "preserved" by running the
engine or pre oiling the engine with a percentage of preservative oil
in the mäin oil that coats everything and clings. This oil is also
sprayed into the cylinder through the spark plug hole then the engine
sealed with the dehydrater plugs. Engines can sit for many years that
One engine overhauled I know works only on large radial engines and is
still buying up engines in metal cans sealed up during WW II. And there
are many good usable parts in those engines.

Fellow Corvair Nuts,
I received an email from an aircraft company today referring to tools.
Naturally, I was curious so I started poking around the catalog. I came
across "Spark Plug Dehydrator" and could not for the life of me figure out
what that would be. After I read it I figured it would better be called an
"Engine Dehydrator". I also thought it might be something some of us could
use in our Corvairs. Other thoughts and comments appreciated. Here is a
