    I am building a, King Scale, Allison 1710 engine. The DVD that comes with the kit does not show the details of the plumbing and wiring. Can anyone out there help me find the appropriate references?

    Best reference I can think of is "Vees for Victory" which surely must be the definitive work on the V-1710 and related engines. I see it is available at Half.com for $56.05 plus shipping. Aside from that I have some photos I took or otherwise acquired for an article I did for Wings/Airpower back in 2001; I would be glad to send you those if you wish.

    I would love to have what pictures you have. I have located maintenance manuals that the following site: http//aviationshoppe.com/manuals/Allison_V-1710.
    Thanks for your help.

    Okay, I can't seem to upload a file, so I'll see what else I can do.
