Does anybody know when the first Bell 204s were sold to the civilian market?

Any luck with your fuel control? I too have a -3 engine that I put in a car. I am curious what your "ground application" is. Most are in boats.

The D and H models were bell 205's, not 204's, Army wanted a version that could carry more troops. Bell's solution was to stretch the HU-1B fuselage by 41 in (104 cm)Production started in 1963, the D models had the Lycoming T53-L11 and the H model had the T53-L13 1,400 SHP derated to 1100 SHP.

Since i was a kid i'm fascinating with aircraft. most of them a Huey helicopter, or UH-1 army copter.. as it approaches overhead our place, we used to run chasing and trying to watch it flying beautifully, till now, specially when i realized and know the very importance of that aircraft,, i hope it'll still be an aircraft for many future generation..

To address the questions on the UH-1D/H they were based on the model 205, not the 204.

I was with 1st AV BDE,10th BN, 92nd Assault Hel Co 1970-71. Flew about about a total of 900 hrs split evenly between UH-1C and UH-1M's fitted as gunships. Both the C & M had the 540 rotor system, same as the AH-1 Cobra minus SAS. SO there were more M's flown than the three indicated in this listing. Both were fine birds and served us well!

The original UH-1A Rotor configuration was Stablizer bar under the rotor hub like the OH-13 and hanging counter weights. The UH-1b came out with stand up counter weights stablizer bar ab ove the rotor and a longer mast. The original A model had a habit of main rotor blades cutting off tail fin during hard landings.

I'm proud to have been on the airframe design team of Bell in 1956 and to have worked on the 204X and Y models. Little did i know then that this would become the DC-3 of the helicopter world. I never got to fly in one. Keep'um flying!

The lift point is the main lift fitting on the lift beam Txsm area, If the trans is installed top cover has lift ring,or install main rotor mast and use the mastnut lift point on top If strap is used around the lift beam don't crush the webs,or other fittings,,,,,

Hope someone in the system told Gerry that he needed a full belly strap or use the jack points. as late as this is I'm sure he found out.

Where is the info on the UH-1D and H model? They were the real work horses of Viet Nam.

This is a very nice summary of the 204. Unfortunately, it fails to address the two models of the UH-1 that were the most produced and most used by the US Army. The UH-1D, and its successor the UH-1H, were produced in greater numbers than any other model, and logged more flight hours than any other 204 variant. Recommend some research on these models as well as some info concerning their employment by the US Army. Great site.
