  1. High Oil Temps

    Rotax part # 956-585. They aren't cheap. $101 each http://www.cps-parts.com/catalog/rtxpages/912914oilradiator.php?clickkey=896593
  2. High Oil Temps

    That particular drain valve many times won't open because it hits the bottom of the plate inside the oil tank.
  3. High Oil Temps

    It's sitting on top of the oil cooler. Just take it off. Put some 90 degree fittings on and route the hose. Make it look like a CTSW.
  4. High Oil Temps

    The last CT I had with that oil thermostat we took it off and didn't use one. temps went right down.
  5. Hi All, I will be out of town from June 1, 2018 to Aug. 15, 2018. If you need any front suspension guide pins, CTSW rubber engine mounts, front suspension red polyurethane spacers, 22K capacitors, oil filter wrench or door lift struts you should get them now. When I leave town I will not be able to ship until I get home after Aug. 15th.
  6. FD did use softer rubber rubber isolators in the begining. If you buy from your source they are still rubber. Here in the US they are more like a neoprene. They out last the rubber ones hands down. I buy them in lots of 100 from overseas. I coat mine with a thin coat of silicone paste before I install them. This lets them slip into a non stressed position as I torque the bolts down. It also helps keep them in much better shape through the years.
  7. High Oil Temps

    A hose with a reduced radius? The two I have found were the stainless fittings on top of the oil cooler. If you look at the bends they may be crimped down some from their original ID right at the bend. I removed these and replaced them with fully open fittings and the issues went away. Just something to check.
  8. Hi Jerry, You guys are welcome to give me a call. I'll be happy to help. These are easy to do once the engine is off.
  9. General Info about the CT

    We're not arguing we're defining . Corey and I don't argue. We're both happy campers.
  10. General Info about the CT

    If you read this I believe someone meant silicone. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-the-difference-between-silicon-and-silicone.htm In short, the difference between silicon and silicone is that silicon is a natural chemical element, while silicone is one of several man-made products derived from silicon. Silicon is generally found in solid crystalline form like sand or glass, while silicone may be a liquid lubricant, a semi-solid adhesive or a rubber-like plastic polymer.
  11. General Info about the CT

    Inox MX3 has no silicone. No need to have to alligator wrestle those zerk fittings when you're just a quick spray away. I use it for all my fittings on aircraft and don't have to worry about any residual damage. I buy mine at Ace Aviation (Ace Hardware). Some Ace Aviation's don't have it. I know Amazon has it, but it cost a little more. The big can of 300 gm should last quite a while. http://www.inoxmx.com/inox/mx-3-lubricant/ https://www.amazon.com/Inox-MX3-Lubricant-300gm/dp/B0043TQ760/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1527117430&sr=8-2&keywords=inox+mx3+lubricant Why MX3 ? Displaces, penetrates, lubricates and protects. INOX-mx3 contains no silicon, acid, kerosene or dieselene. INOX-mx3 will not harm metal points or surfaces, plastics, paints, enamels, fibreglass, formica or neoprene seals INOX-mx3 doesn’t dry out, gum up, become gooey or sticky or wash off with water. INOX-mx3 is non-conductive, non-static, non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-staining. Over the years INOX MX3 has become known as the “Supreme Lubricant” and the go to product when the highest of quality is needed. The special MX3 anti-corrosion, anti-moisture formula is now sought after all around the globe making it one of the leading lubricants in the world today. These qualities make it safe for almost every market out there including: Automotive, aviation, commercial, domestic, electrical & electronics, engineering, farming & mining, firearms, fishing, hobbies, manufacturing, marine, motorcycles, sports and transport.
  12. General Info about the CT

    Those zerk fittings on the rod ends require a special tip. Just spray therm with some Inox at each annual and you're good to go. Some rod ends have those zerk fittings and some don't. Some CT's have those zerk fittings and some don't.
  13. FD and Rotax general service?

    Couldn't change a tire and left out 75 other things and it only took 19 hrs. Think if they had both inspection checklist. May have taken 2 months. And two weeks to inspect a CT. You could do 4+ in two weeks. So when I look at that list I would like to know what they missed since that's all they wrote down and didn't use a list. It's just one of my little pet peeves when people that don't know the engine or plane and won't use a checklist and then you come back and find 1-2 pages of things they missed.
  14. FD and Rotax general service?

    That just shows ignorance. I can work on a Rotax. Would you trust me to work on your jet and then you go fly? What if you work on VW cars does that mean you can rebuild a Duramax diesel engine. Does this mean they just absorbed the jet and turbine info or did they have to learn it, just like the rest of us have to do with a Rotax. It's a different animal. Print out the Rotax and FD check list and tell them to use it and fill it out and not just pencil whip it. Ask them where are they getting the specs to do the annual? Ask them is they know the difference between an oil vent and oil purge. What's the gap for the plugs, what do you put on the plugs and do you even have any. My bet is they put anti seize on them which is a not acceptable. Ask them what the engine ring mount bolt torque is and if they checked it. What's the FD engine mount bolt torque? How do you do a gearbox friction torque check.? Tell them the answers are all in the Line Maint. manual. Ask them if they are going to check the Rotax and FD SB's. If they say where are those then go else where. A lot of top mechanics have messed up a Rotax engine and usually fail to do a decent inspection on the engine and fuselage. My point is with all the above is to show they know nothing and evidently not smart enough to know they really don't know and are failing at getting the info. A good mechanic would have said I need to study up and find all the pertinent information, manuals and SB's for this inspection.
