    Kinda funny I offered him $8K right before I bought my Kitfox. There is 2 guys involved with that project and I think at least one of them is having a hard time letting go. The current owners have done very little on the project but the workmanship so far looked real good. Mike

    I think I am going to bite the bullet and get a new prop, the one I have is the older style with allen screws holding the adjuster tangs on the blades and one of them is worn out. Mike

    Best prop for a 532/582 with an A/B gearbox
    I think I am going to have to buy a new prop for my little Kitfox. It has a 532 on it now with an A gearbox. I have a new 582 greyhead I will eventually put on it which has a B gearbox. I think I am more into smooth operation over performance so I am thinking three blades. I would like something that will work on both. What is the best diameter to run? So let the suggestions fly I am all ears. By the way I can not use an IFA prop because I fly light sport. Mike

    I fly as a sport pilot because of my medical issues, so I can not use the IFA hub. No problem Joey I am beginning to realize this prop is real old and needs to retire so I think I will put it on Fleabay as parts. So I guess I am in the market for a new prop. Mike

    Thanks for all the responses guys. The old cable is on its way to Tewco where they will duplicate it for me. Mike

    WTT Ivo ultralight inflight adjustable hub for std hub
    I want to put the Ivo prop back on my Kitfox because it is so much lighter than the Warp Drive. Any way before I order a new one from Ivo anyone out there want to trade? Mike

    532 with Bing 54's. I got one from Spruce and I can not adjust it to open the carb all the way. I actually would like to modify it to work. Mike

    Throttle cable supplier or make my own
    My mag side throttle cable has seen better days, way better days. Does anyone make these or should I get a motorcycle cable building kit? Mike

    Someone is going to get a seriously nice Kitfox! Wish this had been available when I was on the hunt I would have been all over it. Good luck with the sale. Mike

    I had a 97A in my Arrow, used mostly as a backup but was a great little radio. I think the AT50A is pretty much obsolete but does have some value. Mike
