    Got that sled all ripped apart... and that pesky clutch off!  
    Now for the fun part!

    Yeah, blindly sending money overseas has some risk!
    Luckily steve and copro have good feedback in dealing with Luga.
    I think Air Trikes rebrands the Luga under "Kool".  That is another outlet.

    Luga Propellers
    With invaluable real world data from Steve Henry, I compiled my notes on Luga Props and posted over in the Yamaha Group.
    Here's a link if anyone was interested in more info on these props:
    (Sorry for the crazy link!)

    Wish the bubble doors you are thinking about would fit my KF!  I'd sure be interested.  The KF factory kit price is fine for guys with deep pockets building a new S7... but a little out of my aviation budget!
    Vance, Dumb question:  If I were to do flat lexan door replacement, could I put 3m tape on the frame then slap an uncut sheet on it, stick it down, drill and screw it down, then trim the lexan to the frame?  Roto-Zip it or something? 
    Kinda a quick and simple "for dummies" job that a guy with my talents could appreciate!  LOL

    Setting it back farther might save some cowl rework time too?

    Yamaha with c box is left turning, like a 582 c box.
    So opposite of 912.
    So jared i think a little left is correct.
    Avid experts, the question remains on up/down tilt.
    Go perpendiculal to firewall?
    (That was my KF5 answer)

    I think we need a sub-forum for this too ed!

  9. Yamma-Fox added a post in a topic New Sub-forum for gear options?   

    One really cool thing about the AFF forum engine (which btw is the best I've ever seen of all the forums I'm on) is that when a moderator moves a topic (like reorganizing into a new sub-forum), the original topic title remains as a link in the place it was moved from.
    This really helps to keep members from saying  "now where the hell did that post that was right here go!"

    New Sub-forum for gear options?
    Wow, there is alot of posts and discussion on HD gear / bush gear/ wide gear/ big tire  options!
    Wonder if it is worth a new sub forum?
    Move all previous topics in there.
    Great way to have a one stop place for people to find info.
    (No skin here...  I'm a float guy!  Just an idea.)

    Exactly jim.
    The avid guys are the ones to listen to on this.  Jared i would post a new topic with the question of engine angle on the avid model you have.
    The way I did it on my kf is how the subaru was set up as a factory fwf kit.  You would want to come up with a way to convert that to how avid does it

    my kf5 firewall is parallel to the fuse.
    I went 4 deg left and zero up/down (level using cyl head top)
    But I wont tell you how great it is until I fly it!  Lol!

    Yeah but therein lies my problem...
    No money AND no brains.
     
    But I do have a really hot wife, great kids, and a hangar queen (with a half installed snowmobile motor) in my garage stall.
    So I'm pretty happy with things!
