    EGT question for the experts?

    My ride is a 2007 CTSW. Just to ease my mind while flying today as other days my left EGT was measuring 1470 or so and my right was about 1380. These numbers concern me as the left side is approaching the yellow scale. The temps were OST of 28 degrees. Please educate me as to the concerns with regard to EGT and what indications should worry me. My Dynon maybe giving me too much unnecessary information! 30 years ago I would of wondered what EGT was! I never had that on my Cessna airplanes of the time! Thanks

    EGT question for the experts?

    By the way I’m stripping all the exhaust wrap off the pipes. I appreciate cleaner uncomplicated systems especially if not need! And then one over wraps and makes things worse! 🤔 In Phoenix in July probably needed!

    EGT question for the experts?

    I’m always entertained when I descend powered back and the EGT temps rise! Then I remember too much information can spoil a fun flight!

    Snow birding in Kingman Az?

    Hello everyone! I’m snow birding in Kingman Az for a few months escaping Montana’s cold. Are there any CT enthusiasts in the Kingman area or near? Thanks Buckaroo from Montana

    Snow birding in Kingman Az?

    Hello Larry! No I’m down here in my 5th wheel escaping the Montana winter for a few months. I know Arizona is the CT capital of the world. If your in the area in your plane give me a ring. I’d like to share some CT war stories with you. It would be fun to see another one as well. 406-366-0504 Dave Beggins

    Thanks for the reply! I went out to the Kingman Airport today but it appears like there’s no FBO there. I’m still researching things. Is there a CT owner in Kingman? Thanks Buckaroo

  11. My tape is getting rough lately so I pulled some off the stabilator top. The rest will be replaced when I get the tape. Question: If one we’re to remove all the tape would stall speed or handling in general change significantly? I’m mainly interested in stall speed! Also has anyone tested the effect on cruise speed? Thanks

    Glider tape question?

    I’m with you Andy! I hate the look of important things like stabs looking like tape holding things together!??

    I can picture a complicated circuit board where expansion and contraction regains circuitry!?

    Mine wouldn’t start a couple months ago. I iced it then it started. Since that time I’ve put 26 hours on her with no problems starting.

    Fuel pressure question?

    Today turning right from the upwind leg my fuel psi gauge dropped momentarily to 0 psi and flickered around 1 and 2 lsa just to return to its normal 3 to 4 reading in the mid green. In order for me to understand the system and feel more comfortable can folks explain this systems operations to me? 1. If the gauge drops and stays at zero will I have engine failure? 2. Gravity fed fuel to engine still requires fuel pump. 3. How does fuel pump interact with psi on Dynan?

    I’ll work on getting her to go solo! Lol

    912 ignition modules

    I bought a set of those awhile back. I’ve assembled some specialty tools recommended by Roger and Tom. I guess my concern is I don’t know what I’m doing and then when done I will take my wife flying!??

    912 ignition modules

    Yes I agree! What going on now is my 5 year hose job is do. I have a IA who is willing to take on the job. I’m going to contribute 50% in this task but he and I have never tackled this before. He’s a 30 year Cont Nd Lycome Guy. He’s actually a very well respected aircraft wrench in Montana. I have the hose kit from Lockwood and November 1st we’re tackling this job. My plan is to send the carbs to Roger for rebuilding and to change all the engine rubber out. Question? Can anyone give us a simple listing of basic steps to take in the process? His idea is to cut a hose and replace a hose. There’s more involved like draining coolant, gas lines, oil lines, accress points etc. Would some of you be able to give us a simple listing of steps to take in this process? I probably will have questions along the way. Thanks everyone!

    Mine wouldn’t start one day. I cranked and cranked in all choke positions. She had gas and the fuel shut off was on and she has 25 gallons of gas. I figured it was a module. I was told to make sure my new Odyssey battery was good. It tested good. It’s always on a battery tender. Then I iced down the modules with a large bag of ice for 30 minutes. Then I tried to start it and it fired up immediately. That was last June and she starts every time now. Question? Is one module going out or is this just a fluke? My CTSW starts usually on the first 1/4 turn and hasn’t let me down since. Are the modules indexed to where they can fail in a certain position? My CTSW is running brilliantly with 790 hours on her!

    REMOVING RESUDUE WHEN REPLACING TAPE

    Goof Off let it sit some wife off wet again let sit 5 minutes wipe off. Takes a little rubbing. I left tape off my stab and under fin and like the look much better!?
  21. Someone told me there’s a solution to the need of carb balancing. That’s replacing the tubing between each carb with a larger diameter piece. Can someone please elaborate! I’m very interested and if true why isn’t it a popular mod? Thanks Buckaroo

    Glider tape question?

    I took all the tape off mine with the exception of the wings. Looks cleaner to me! Why tape the bottoms if it makes no difference in performance? No one see’s the bottom.
  23. Ok I’ll bite! Please tell me about the SYNC light? ?
  24. This is true! My thinking was earlier in my post that if a simple larger radius balance tube would eliminate the need for carb balance then why not do it! Simple as that. But now reading these posts I agree that the engineers at Rotax would of developed this early on. So with that in mind doing it the standard way in fine with me. I have come to the conclusion that modding these wonderful engines with turbo’s, zipper kits etc. is only going to get you gremlins in the end. Its fun for me to throw stuff out on this forum to hear the replies plus you learn a lot! ? My engine is bone stock and it’s staying that way!
