Have any MTO owners over there had their coolant bottle replaced as per a recent service bulletin put out by AG. Apparently there have been instances of the plastic coolant bottle splitting causing the loss of coolant. The service bulletin is for the bottle to be replaced with a metal one and also a modification is required to the coolant pipework.
I think it only relates to fairly new gyros, there are only two in Australia that are affected. We just can't seem to get the parts to comply to the Sevice Bulletin.
Very frustrating.

2013 MTO Sport is my "starter gyro". I trained in one so I might keep it or buy another make & model

Did you get AG USA to send you the replacement free or did you buy one locally? If locally which one, it might be faster to go that route.

Disregard. Mine isn't in the serial number range because mine has the previous plastic bottle that apparently isn't brittle enough to break like the newer "bottle 2" type.
