Anyone have a Rotax “C” or “E” Box they’d like to get rid of?

Have a c box, what ratio are you looking for, or does it matter?

Hey Turbodog,
I’m really trying to figure that out and having trouble finding much info on it.
I have a 68 (ish) inch older 3 bladed Kiev Prop that I want to turn with a 582/C-Box.
The prop might be too big for the motor, but I think it will work. Any thoughts on that?
But in order to get decent prop speed, I think I need the 3.0 ratio. I am looking at another one of those now.
What can you tell me about yours? Ratio? What shape is it in? What are you asking for it?

Thanks,
Scott

I ran a 68" IVO three blade on a 532 with a 2.62 gear ratio.

I have a couple of c boxs and I am fairly sure one of them is a 3.0, tommorrow I will find out the ratio and get back to you. The 582 will work with a 3.0 ratio on the 68" prop. What kind of airframe are you intending to fly, single or two place?

Hey Turbodog,
So sorry for the delayed response. Newly retired and the virus thing have got me totally off my rhythms.
Thanks for your offers. As it turns out, I did find a good used 3.0 C Box.
Fir now I’m in good shape
Thanks again,
Scott
