  1. One CHT is in the front, and is exposed to a little bit cooler air.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. @Odowneyeng Make sure you weren't being quoted an instruction and rental policy. That's what it sounds like you were being quoted.
  6. Those have tabs that are accessed from the top to remove the connector assembly for further disconnection.
  7. 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.
  8. The 20 dollar chargers suck. Either they don't float charge, or they don't fully charge an AGM battery.
  9. Is the stick shaking from slop or can you feel it when you put a very slight pressure on it?
  10. 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.
  11. Since the matco front wheels are deep groove ball bearings, I am in agreement with roger. They can take some sideload, being ball bearings, but too much will accelerate wear on the sides of the races.
  12. If there's no basis for the bad press, then they could very easily start a lawsuit with Rotax. Rotax did the same thing to Silent Hektik's voltage regulator. Silent Hektik responded with a cease and desist and threatened a lawsuit, and Rotax backed down. Source: Silent Hektik when I suggested they try working with rotax to replace the crap ducati regulators, and the response was definitely one which they said have zero desire to ever work with Rotax because of what happened a couple years prior over this.
  13. I have one of these. Works quite well.
  14. NOTAR or not? Piston or turbine driven? How many rotor blades? There's always an argument to be had
