  1. My plane was run exclusively on 100LL until I purchased and the bowls has some minor corrosion. I have seen the carbs (912 and the 2 stroke 503 dual carb) completely covered in condensation after a quick short flight. Likely the same on the inside. With ethanol, this gets harmlessly absorbed. Without it sits in the bottom and causes corrosion (100LL or ethanol free will both do this). I have been running 93 MoGas (with ethanol) almost exclusively for 6+ years and have never seen this since then. Pros and cons to both fuels but, most experts believe that long term, ethanol is better than lead.

    Definitely a surreal sight that I hope doesn’t last much longer. Kind of a once in a lifetime experience.
  3. Sounds like a good idea! A few of us have talked about doing this but it never really happened. I am interested and Saturdays are usually good. I’m in western PA just north of Pittsburgh. Several of us (CTs) have been to Put n Bay for a casual get together. Might be busy on a Saturday though...

    No I missed out on that flight as we were at our camp checking on things after winter. I have been wanting to do a touch & go (or 3) at PIT just to say that I did. It’s been eerily quiet. I’m with Mark, get out there fly! Gas is practically free. My wife and I have done several sightseeing flights and even one to an airport that we were able to hike directly from. Be safe out there!
  5. 1Motoshop once again has brake pads (GOLDfren 905) for the Marc brakes. Not sure how many so if you are in need, I would order soon.
  6. Check out Blue Ridge Community College in VA. They usually have Rotax classes there around the time of the LSRM class.
  7. Yes the GoldFren 905 brake pads are correct and will fit. They are not riveted and match perfectly with the original pads.

    Port Clinton 2019

    I’m in unless my schedule doesn’t allow!
  9. Put-in-bay 2019 sounds like a great plan. It’s been too long since we all caught up
  10. I got mine with extra long webbing and used the metal webbing clips. I have plenty of adjustment... Mark’s are a few inches small around the waist and we are not big guys... otherwise they are great!
  11. I have done this many times and it works great. Those suction cups really hold!

  13. Antisept, what are the wear limits of the rotor? I have not been able to find a reference anywhere...
  14. I used Crow for my LS and can say it was worth every penny. Still have the originals in case it was ever an issue down the road.
  15. Yes thanks! I spoke with Garmin and they were able to point me in the right direction. (Its the green wire in the GDL39 leg). It will certainly make the installation much easier.
