727 Tay Conversion

Wed Dec 12, 2001 8:00 pm

Have any companies besides UPS re-engined their 727's with RR Tay's? This may have been asked before, but that thought just crept into my head.

I beleive it has only been UPS and some private customers.

I was pleased to see that someone had gotten around to re-engining the nice 727, I was curious if anyone happens to know what kind of fuel savings are being experienced with the conversion, and possible cost of conversion. I was surprised to hear that the 707 re-engined with the CFM56 had a 27 percent fuel saving.
Thanks for any help.

Hey.
Does anyone know why 727's re-engined with RR tays have all three replaced, 727's with JT8D-200's are only numbers 1 and 3?

TWA all the way

TWAalltheway, the Rolls Royce Tay engine could fit into the No. 2 spot on the 727-100. The JT8D-200, which has a larger diameter than the standard JT8D, would not fit into the No. 2 spot. So JT8D-200s were only installed on the No. 1 and 3 positions and a JT8D-17A was installed in the No. 2 position.

im building a Super 27 for fs2000/2002, heres a screenshot that shows the plane with -217 and -17 on the plane, it really shows just how much larger the 217 is and why it wont fit in the #2 spot
