    Thanks Randy! My "here the left hand falls" position of the throttle is, together with the windows, my best mods. Never had the problem being squeezed, you know we are pretty small over here...

    Definitely for the chemtrail container, you don't want that stuff inside the cabin!

    I sure can...

    and as mentioned I will test when they arrive and post the outcome. They appear to be the right size, to be confirmed. And we will see about the hardness...

    Thank you all for your feedback on this.
    Comparing with bushings for other planes I have concluded that a shores hardness around 40 for the "rubber" used might be appropriate. I have found an industrial model that appears to match in terms of size and after talking to the manufacturer I have placed an order. I will test and keep you updated.

    Thank you all.
    With the exception of eventually Leading Edge Air Foils, I have not found anyone proposing an off the shelf solution. And yes, I have the indications about "5/8" thick neoprene" in the manual... but there is more than one sort of neoprene and there is no indication of hardness (shores).
    Comparing with other bushings sold for this size 2 stroke I think the neoprene should be 40° shores. Anyone has a different opinion?
    My old bushings were definitely too soft (and have not aged very well)

    Being the pilot helps, just like when driving. But if you are really sensitive it might take some time to get over it...

    Engine mount bushing
    I need to urgently replace my "582" type engine mount bushings. Looking for a reference and a supplier, preferably in europe... or dimensions and rubber characteristics (shores...) for make to order.

    Is there no modified bell cranks for the KitFox like the F7A bell cranks for the Avid?

    just thinking out loud here... not sure how that one works but guessing ultra sound... and if so maybe that, like anything operating on hight frequencies, could generate radio interference... I have a 6 liter header tank with a level alarm that goes off if the level starts to go down (i.e. just On/Off, not actaully measuring the level) It is just a magnet floating around a stick with a magnet triggered switch in it.

    I can confirm that "the skis on the plane is just a sample pic" - as it is my plane and I not selling my skis! NEVER!!! 
    Whoever not buing the skis will one day regret it! So when you do (buy them that is), make sure they include the long wheel axis that goes with the skis. Can send photos if needed if the son selling his fathers stuff is not up to speed on what is a part of the kit.
