    replied to Rotax 912 Preheat
    Fortunately I live in a southwest state NM, and the winter months are not normally real harsh

    I am glad that I have a cabin heater for the cold mornings.

    Engine starts are real easy here ,but I let my engine water temp come up to operating temps first.

    For...

    I don't think that any kind of headset,earplugs combination on the planet will handle the noise of a round engine less than a foot from your head, also it looks

    to be a really low drag setup,other than that its a really cool neat looking machine. I love round engines,and the sound just...

    replied to Raf 2000 owners, help please
    Glenn I have yet to see two raf's with the same alternator , most owners have replaced the stock

    alternator with a smaller one for various reasons mostly for weight savings. Just go to NAPA

    and find one that has the same type of plug and mounting points,good luck....

    replied to fuel line orifice
    My pressure after shutting down will drop from 30 lbs to zero in about an hour,if you are

    worried about it just crank the engine with the fuel pumps shut off the pressure will zero out.

    Also if you are getting any air into the fuel system that's the problem that needs fixing....

    replied to Subaru 2.2 Cam upgrade power modifications
    the 2.2 is rated @ 135 HP boosted with 6 lbs increases the HP to 191.7 HP.My chart shows a 7% increase of HP per 1 lb of pressure

    6 lbs work out to a 42% increase of HP

    the tuning of the engine with an aftermarket ECU is done with your laptop computer plugged into it while...

    replied to Subaru 2.2 Cam upgrade power modifications
    Turbocharging can get expensive,but you will probably increase your HP to around 200 HP, with 6 lbs of boost,the turbo itself will only increase

    weight by around 8 pounds with that small amount of boost a intercooler is not needed,you will need to go to an after market computer to retune...

    replied to Dominator axles
    The best thing for a self repair would be to use another piece of 4130 tubing that would fit inside

    the existing axle. hollow axles are normally stronger than solid ones.

    But it sounds like the axle has been messed with and a new one would be the best way to go,

    replied to Radio question
    Dave I think Mark's problem may be the antenna,but I also installed the same lone star filters that you did and all of my radio problems went away.

    They really work as advertised,great products.

    replied to Overcoming Preconceptions
    Then how come I can use a cruise power setting and be going very slow because the cyclic is moved aft.

    the cyclic is controlling my airspeed not the throttle,as I move the cyclic forward the airspeed will increase,

    If I keep the cyclic aft and close the throttle I will being...

    Hey chuck lets talk about pilot chatter,what in the world does a (superregenerator oscillator-detector) have to do with which control is used to maintain altitude/or climb.

    I am not a Ph.D and will never be,but I have been taught just about everything I need to know about Gyros from pilot...

    replied to Overcoming Preconceptions
    Vance the way you are teaching is the right way to do it,especially when coming In for a landing,I mean everybody that has flown any thing knows that

    Air speed is elevator/cylic (stick forward or back) and throttle controls rate of descent.

    replied to Woodstock II Gyro For Sale
    Carl lives west of me about 60 miles and he came by the hanger several months ago,he said that he hasn't flown in quite a while,no problems he just

    got where he didn't want to fly,carl's gyro has an HKS that is turbocharged and flys really good at this altitude.

    replied to Storage
    Why not use a smaller enclosed trailer for the gyro and cut a slot in the top for the mast and have the blades on top

    with slip on covers for the blades and rotor head. I own my hanger and rent the land its on for $100.00 a year

    from the city, tie downs on the ramp are free....
