    Funny enough I was talking to a mate today about wanting to do the exact same thing..... neither of us have any idea if it has been or if it can be done....

    Yay, 1/4-28 threaded rod end arrived,  1/4-28 with 3/16 bearing hole rod end arrived.  Now I need to submit a mod to install them and pray to god I am allowed to secure with 2x 1/8 rivets slightly staggered at right angles.  Else it would have to be welded and for that the CAA have to send a coded welder to do it.....at great expense.
    You guys in the US have it easy with your experimental system.  Saying that our "Experimental" system in the UK is still way easier than the normal C of A regime.

    Good to know.  Could you ask your good friend next time he sees Mark to ask if he could possibly look at his emails as he has 4 from me dating back to 6th April..........

    I would either try another compression tester to try the compression tester on another engine.  My 582 has compression of 150psi (ish in both Cycl).

    Are they willing to make another one and send it to the UK?

    Thanks....although the part that someone else bought for their repair (which I have now  bought) is 3/8"-24 thread and I cant seem to find a heim rod end with that thread that has the right size bearing  Also the rod end bearing hole is only 3/16 as is the bolt hole on the bracket.
     
    I either have a wierd MkIV or most of you are refering to a KitFox

    So further research.  The rod end that is on the aircraft is an Aurora MW-3M-1 Which turns out to be a special part from Aurora which is no longer available.  it was a 10-32 thread.  So now I need to find a threaded rod end that fits 1/2 inch tube and has a 10-32 thread.  not an easy task int he UK

    Was this for an Avid or Kitfox?  I ordered one, but the thread is way to big.  So I need to figure out what thread I need.  As usual my manual doesn't list the item other than calling it and elevator push rod.  So I though I know I will look up the heim in the manual....naturally the manual simply calls it a rod end with no other information ....well it labels it as F-40.

    In the UK with it in series the aircraft will not get a permit to fly.....as it is against the manufacture requirements.

    That doesn't meet the Rotax guidelines as that is series and not parallel.  If your Mikuni diaphragm fails and blocks off then your facet pump will make no odds.

    Facet Fuel Pump
    If any of you are running a facet boost pump on a 582 can you tell me if you have it feeding both carbs or one carb?
    On my Avid it is installed in parallel as per the Rotax guide lines, however it is only feeding one carb.  That just doesn't seem right to me.
