Garrett AiResearch JFS-100 starting unit assembly.

Postby j79guy on Wed Jan 21, 2009 7:51 pm

Used as a starter on the A7 "Corsair-II" aircraft, for the Allison TF-41 main engine. A few found their use as starters on industrial packages as well. Neat little engine. Fully self contained, with oil sump, ignition unit, ect. Many are finding their way into home built creations, and two were used as turbojets on a BD-5 "Microjet", as seem in one of the James Bond movies. (Converted to pure turbojet, via the elimination of the power turbine assembly, and the fitment of a converging tailcone.) Getting tougher to find now, Tim Arfons is one of the few guys left who has an inventory of parts.
This particular unit is a starter on a Allison 501KB based 2.8mWe, trailer mounted electrical gen set.

After looking back at the F-16 & F-15 aircraft, these starters are the types used even in the newer models. Do think these JFS starts are the same? Did these units get an update to a different model?

Bill,

There is an uprated model, the JFS190. These units are turning up on the internet for sale occasionally, but for considerably more money than the JFS100's. The JFS100's are rated at 90-100 shp, and as the model denotes, the JFS190; 180-190 shp.

Robin.
