  2. You need to contact your distributor and ask for the flap programming instructions. There's three versions now I believe. Make sure you provide your aircraft type and serial number. These programming switches ship with the airplane in a small bag, along with some other misc tools that are meant to go with the airplane when it's sold. If you dont have these, you'll have to build your own or order them. Note: if you build the flap switch incorrectly, you will fry the board. First hand experience. It becomes a $1500 repair.
  3. You must have the switch attached. It bridges two of the terminals together which activates programming mode, and the third triggers programming position. The flap programming guides have schematics which can be used to create your own
  4. Is it always the same one? Is it possible it was exposed to the sun for a few minutes before you got to it? Is it warm only on one spot or along the whole length?
  5. One CHT is in the front, and is exposed to a little bit cooler air.
  6. Record all total time by tach in the US. You're devaluing your aircraft excessively by tracking anything by hobbs. You can still maintain by hobbs as recommended by manufacturers as long as you don't overshoot the 100hr total time (unlikely). I personally maintain by hobbs but TIS is tracked by tach.
  7. That would absolutely be a faulty regulator, or faulty charge/sense wire. The rotax manual has a drawing for the charging system. You need to find the wire that looks like a jumper, and make absolutely sure it is a clean, solid connection. If it is not, the regulator will keep the charging circuit closed and voltage will spike.
  8. Rotating the prop is done before you empty the reservoir. It scavenges the residual in the crank case. There's no risk of air introduction that way. As for your overflow problem, I can't comment. At best i can say, someone added extra oil.
  9. @Odowneyeng Make sure you weren't being quoted an instruction and rental policy. That's what it sounds like you were being quoted.
  10. Those have tabs that are accessed from the top to remove the connector assembly for further disconnection.
  11. It will have been done at overhaul. The only out of round part that we can do is the front part that drives the gearbox. The rest can only be done with complete disassembly and we don't have the information for it (such as checking journal out of roundness) Distortion is done with a rotax tool placed in the plug slot, and the use of a flowerpot gauge. The crankshaft components are interference fit, instead of one piece. You're checking to see if the crank managed to twist. There's a table that states the allowable degrees from zero.
  12. The 20 dollar chargers suck. Either they don't float charge, or they don't fully charge an AGM battery.
  13. Is the stick shaking from slop or can you feel it when you put a very slight pressure on it?
  14. I'm not sure how I had missed this topic, because this is a subject that I know about. Air and surface tension in lines is well documented. An air obstruction requires more pressure to dislocate than it takes to simply cause fluid flow in a hose.
