BRCC added a topic in Avid Kitplanes.comModel "C" 912ULS ConversionWe received a grant to purchase a motor mount, cowling, radiator and oil tank mount to convert our Avid Flyer (currently outfitted with a 582LC) to a 912ULS.
I'm a firm believer in the "Search" function, and I'm loath to ask this, but can anyone help direct me to a source for advice, part numbers, etc? I've emailed or called a few POCs, but haven't heard back. I have time constraints that force me to come here and beg for help!
Thanks for any assistance!

BRCC added a topic in Avid Model CEngine Cowl Exhaust DamageWe're at a point in the Non-Metallics class where we have a composite project. Since I dragged all the equipment out I decided to undertake repair of the engine cowling where the exhaust has been rubbing and burnt/cracked it. The builder added a blister to the cowl, but it wasn't large enough and not exactly placed correctly.
I removed the cowling and wrapped foam around the exhaust and then reinstalled the cowl. I carefully nipped away at the damaged area and estimated the clearance I would need. This shot was taken after some time spent at the downdraft table removing the paint, bondo, and heat shield from the inside. The extra space on the right was where the original blister was located.
