Both engines quit.

Recommended Posts

Well, there I was level at 10,000 in clear air and  pulling about 1450 lbs on both engines at 1900 rpms.  I took off from KSMF with full fuel tanks about twenty minutes earlier.  The left engine quit and I feathered it.  About five minutes later the right engine quit.  I feathered it and dead sticked into KMYV.  Once on the ground, I went through every thing I could think of in terms of flipping switches and neither engine would start.  The temp was above freezing at altitude and at the surface.   Never had such a problem before.  Any ideas?


Update:  I must have over torqued the engines.  There are two red "lines" on the torque gauges.  I couldn't find any max torque for take off info so I assumed the upper limit might be a time limited take off setting.  Guess it it isn't. :Tounge:

Did the same. It would help if we had that info right?

Hi PR,


I agree.  So, I emailed Carenado and they answered and advised: "The left engine will fail after two minutes if you are overtorquing it."
