    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.

    Sounds good to me.  And makes good sence to have it locked down comin up on the ramp verse comin down off the ramp so it not backoff.

    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
