Last year carl was forced to sell his house and asked me to keep his gyro at my place :wave: well since then carl has developed cancer and has had several surgeries and is going through chemo therapy.
    when ever Carl comes by he askes to see his gyro :sad: I have decided to try to fix her up for Carl as a surprise :D I have purchased a pusher prop and a replacement 2in axel tube but I need some :help: if anyone can :help: I need 1 wheel with axel & 2 small aluminum blocks that hold the axle also a 5gallon seat tank :angel: if anyone can help with these parts please call mark marlow at 509-670-1446
    Hi Mark,
    maybe cou can help me. I just got a Bensen quite similar to yours to build it up... but I do not get any papers or manteneance manuals... do you know anybody who could help me with this?

    Thanks a lot in advance

    all the best john
    I designed a electronic ign, that goes on Mac 72-90 eng, and the one on my Mac 90 runs with NO shut off's at all. The Mag that I had on it, didn't work so well. It kept on sutting off, so I built a better one and I am in the process of patten pending on it. Pretty cool isn't it? We Mac owners must improve our engines in order to survive the sky. I don't want to crash when my points in my Mag quit firing. SO tell me if U are interested in this. OK ? I have pictures of this on my engine and web page. Thanks and keep on flying.
    My B8-M has a Mac 90 and Rick Whittridge's electronic ignition. I'm just now flying the length of the runway, just off the ground. Getting a feel for the stick - it's real sensitive. Soon as I can keep her level for the length of the runway, I'll work on S-turns, as shown in Ken Brock's 2nd instructional video. I've read Marion Springer's crow-hop lesson about 5 times now - and learn something new every time. My instructor is Ed Newbold, here in central Ohio
    Hi Mark, I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner. Sue and I went to Alaska for 12 days. I like David as an instructor, but he's been unavailable for training since last fall, I don't know if it's personal, I thought we got along great while training, maybe I spooked him or something. Anyway I would recommend him if he's available. Russ
    I know my picture looks HOT, that is what my wife looked like when I married her. NOW ????????? Some what, older. ha ha.
    I was wondering if anyone could help me in locating the OLD TYPE 4" brake drum style with a 1" hole and no ball bearings in it. It bolts together with 5 bolts. It is a 8" rim. If anyone has one for sale or just get an up grade, then I would like too have it. Thanks.
    I am restoring a Mac 90 hp and I have removed the Mag neto from it and replaced it with my own design of a electronic unit which WORKS WELL. I have 350.00 into the parts, not bad hu? The New Electronic Ing, is easy too install and it will be available from me, soon (with in) 1 wk., if anyone is interested in converting theirs over. I am up for suggestion on the final price, so let me know what do U all think about it. I was thinking about a 2 year warranty on all electronic. I am also building an electric start. I'm sure someone has built it already, so let me know who. Thanks.
    I have a 1980 Bensen B8M with super mac 90 looks allot like yours havn't flown it yet no training around here. I hope to taxi it up at the airport this spring. tired of winter. Well have a great weekend.
