    Sounds similar to the plane that I am working on...thinking of leaving them mounted on the 582 and seeing where it goes.

    No biggie, that is the one that I have been looking at....of course I am also considering cutting one of the singles down a bit to "make it" fit.

    My 532 had the same K&N filters as the 582 came with.  The 582 has the oil injection pump and intake on it, which is what I believe pushed it over the limit.  I had to take the front carb filter off to get the cowling to mount back on.
    I am thinking about ordering #6 here: https://www.leadingedgeairfoils.com/rotax-air-filters.html
    Just want to get some measurements tomorrow to make sure that it will fit.

    It was a compliment your plane seems to have a number of things on it that I have been searching for... Each time I see a different angle... I seem to see something that I have had trouble locating

    I actually need an air filter like that if it will fit inside my cowling. 
    No slight was intended though... The joke about it was, I think we were talking about oil reservoirs and your picture showed a coolant overflow bottle that I needed... And still need by the way... Have been looking at squeeze bottles, as you suggested... But no luck so far.

    JimChuck, You are always showing me pictures of stuff I need that has nothing to do with the question.  I was rough fitting everything today and found that the front carb air filter is too wide for the cowling by .5 inch.  How far out from the carb face does that air filter stick out from the face of the carb?  Directly out from the front carb I have about 3.5 inches to the cowl.  What is the part #?
     
    Thanks

    Cooling system design
    Refer to the attached image.
    The 532 to 582 saga continues.  My cooling system for the 532 did not look like this.  The coolant expansion tank connects between point 4 and the radiator instead of point 7 and the radiator.  First of all does anyone see any issue with this implementation?  I really don't want to have to rebuild a cooling system for it.  Second of all, with the coolant expansion tank being directly connected to the water pump housing and the line to the overflow tank being above the water pump (it is the highest point in the system) do I even need to install a vent line from the water pump?  The 532 did not have one.
    TIA

    For the 582, what version of the Tiny Tach is everyone suggesting?  The TT2A?  I have seen on other posts that people were setting this to 180 (2 sparks per revolution) for the 582, is this the correct setting?  JimChuck, I now that is what you have already said....but am getting ready to order and want to make sure that I order the correct model and set it up appropriately.
    TIA

    Why are mags remoted
    Is there any reason that the mags on a 582 need to be remoted?  I am replacing a 532, which had two coils, and they were both remoted.  I am putting in a 582 and do not see any prevailing reason to remote them.  They are currently mounted on a metal plate just under the carbs (when engine is inverted).  I would like to leave them there.
    Any thoughts?

    I don't doubt that and I happen to think that is true on my certified aircraft as well.  However, when I have to get a condition inspection, I am guessing that the mechanic is going to want to see a more concrete representation.

    Yes, the 532 had a points ignition, but was thinking since this tach was pulling from the charging circuit that it would be right

    Just so that I am clear, you are saying to wrap the one sensor wire around two of the plug wires?  I only ask for this clarification, because the Tiny Tach that I am looking at, specifically the TT2A, only has one sensor wire and of course, they show it being wrapped around a single plug wire.

    Tachometer
    I am in the process of doing an engine swap from a 532 to a 582.  I have noticed that the current tachometer, which appeared to be working fine, was wired directly into the charging circuit in parallel with the regulator.  I am reasonably sure that this should work equally well with the 582, but thought I would check with those with more experience than I.  I have seen that many people are using a tiny tach, but my concern is that it is only measuring a single mag, so of course measuring mag drops would not be possible.  Any thoughts?

    Just got another response from the Rotax forum: http://www.rotax-owner.com/en/rotax-forum/1-2-stroke-technical-questions/6135-oil-injection-bottle-installation#15833
    That indicates that it may need to be above the input to the injection into the intake.  Not sure I would be able to make that one work.  I may have to disable the oil injection and run mixed.

    Therein was the rub... None of the reservoirs were able to meet that criteria.. Not enough vertical space to accomplish that.
