  4. Oil temp gauge?

  5. Oil temp gauge?

    Oil temperature gauge( steam ) works fine at idle. Wait for 120. Full rpm for takeoff or flight goes to nothing (like no power or input) Just started. any ideas
  6. Oil temp gauge?

    Ok . That was the plan just wanted to make sure there was not something else to look at. Thanks
  7. 912 ignition modules

    Time out guys. Here is the central question I was trying to ask. If one has a 912 uls that has old style ignition modules (non soft start) and it is starting fine should one upgrade to soft start module ? (essentially 2 k dollars). It has a new battery and is starting very easily and well. (The previous battery was old and it did kickback a couple of times when it was cold) It is in inspection now and I can get friction torque measurement soon.
  8. 912 ignition modules

    I have an early 912 uls with 180 hours. Runs great. Has 2 green non soft start modules. Has had a little kickback but not since I got a new battery. My understanding of choices: 1 Leave it alone 2. buy 2 soft start modules for 2k 3. Go experimental. Buy one soft start module and Change to 2 mag switches and a starter key or button. Start on one soft start module and then switch the second on.
  9. 912 ignition modules

    If you had individual mag(ignition)switches instead of rotary, I understand you could start on just the soft start and then switch the second one on. Correct or no?
  10. My question stands. I am not worrying about a ramp check just curious about what happens if one is ramp checked and something like that is found.
  11. Thanks all for your comments. Hypothetically what would be the outcome if one were ramp checked as noted above?
  12. I ordered these from http://www.crowenterprizes.com/ Great folks to work with. The buckle I ordered allows addition of antisubmarine 5th belt which I have not done. Standard plastic buckle is probably easier. item 30104 2X2 4-Way 52'' Lap belt W/2''H-Harness Sewn into Lap belt, Pads & Plastic Sternum Buckle Black 2 84.00 168.00 *** all wrap around ***** 1 15.05 15.05 UPS Shipping Charges 1 Tracking# 1ZE83651-03-5869-4305

  15. cowling attachment piece

    Actually that's not my plane. That is a ct fuselage that Lockwood aviation uses to teach the rotax classes. I took the first 2 day course this mon and tues. I just noticed those pieces and took a picture. One of mine has broken. I thought the course was very well done. ( I do fly without the main wheel pants, but the front pant/pants? is on my plane)

  19. Passenger foot rest

    I do not intend to start a discussion on the safety risks of passenger foot rests. Wanted: Passenger foot rest or Pics and Plans: I have a friend who has a machine shop and I think I can get one made without difficulty. Rich
  20. Passenger foot rest

    Will let you know. Still wonder if someone has measurements or plans so i dont have to recreate from Scratch
  21. Trouble latching door(s)

    Has anyone installed an interior door handle to pull closed? If so any pictures ? Rich
  22. Anyone have measurements. I'm sure i can just measure in the plane but would be nice to have them from one already done. Rich
