Hi LEE and All,
To be honest I've only had this gyro for 2 weeks and did not have the time to study it deeply, which I will have to do before taking off
this engine had a good reputation in France (before the Italian company shut it's doors because of and arguments btw the 2 partners if my informations are true !!! what a pitty) , it is ligth, short (480 cm from the main mast to the prop !) powerful.
the one I have has been serviced just before I bougth it, but unless I found spares I will have to install an Hirth or a rotax (rather an hirth 3502 or an MZ cause they are 10kg ligther then rotax imho)
the arrow has a ducati dual ignition, a mono bing carburator, I think I will be able to get the gaskests and pistons in the future but as for cylinders (nikasil) pistons rods and the crankshaft ...I still did not find anything.
I think I have a good 300 hours ahead of me but I have to think of the future
in addition I need practice in dealing with all those problems just to gain experience for future home built projects ....
regards
jean mi
ps :1 Ill tell you how the water pump is driven when I find it out ((((-:
on your demand I post new picture but not specifically showing the engine, I'll make you some if you need it regards

Hi,
In addition it really look like a custom cooling system, and really looks like a stock one ...
I spoke with a friend running an air cooled one, he used it for 400 hours, without anything issues
regards
