Well -14 here last few days and think im gettin to b a whimp sometimes about the cold, So decided was time to widen the doors on the Blackfox #0021. So got a 4x8 sheet of lexan and started peelin right side door apart to change lexan and bend up a new center bar. Looks like ill get 1.75" on each side at ur shoulder, elbow, knee. My Bluefox has this done but only 1.5" on each side. Sure makes a lot of difference on the older narrow body Kitfox and probably just as well on the earlie Avid. Ill post more pic as i get them done.
I would definetly have it looked at, that way u know and there probably nothing wrong with itnbut the end seals should b changed and check/replace the waterpump seals, i had mine looked at by Darby's Performance Machine here in Fairbanks, mine was all good inside so no parts to replace was just a gasket,seal,and a mag check on crank for cracks, im sure is more to the checkout of motor, was only $380. Make sure its ur "Airboat Motor" lol. They r ski-doo/Rotax guys there with lots of parts instock.
I picked up a used supercub tailspring they r a stack of 3 leafs, and only used two of the stack. Probably could use just main spring, but im still buildin KF# 0038 so not sure on one or two leafs but think 3 way to much. Got used spring for $50
Ohhh man comon!!! 22 above is awesome flyin weather. Its 8:30am and it 19 above now. But we been havin some odd warm weather so far this winter. Hahahahahaaaa well guess if u been here 48yrs u get a little use to it but i still love my Carhartts!!! It has a 532 single ign, elctric start, muffler heat, B box, 68" GA Ivo,
Well did about an hr and a half worth of flyin and taxi work yesturday. Was a good day 22above but no sun. Still was AWESOME!!!!! My flying buddy Brian (in pic) said the Blackfox 0021 sure b a nice bird and it climbs like hell, i think she will b a ton of fun.
