hi, try setting the first keyframe to 1 not 0 for position keys.I think a rotation key is prolly best for a cowl flap... since it would rotate down from position.

We're using variable "cowlflap" positions for engine 3 and 4 to display ice on the wings, so it works for us, on our twin. Cowlflaps are also working/animated on the Baron, so use its throttle quadrant on your plane until you figure out how to make it react correctly.I'm not the model designer, so I don't know which tags was used on the model.
