  4. Neil added a post in a topic Wanted VW engine Mount and Cowl for Avid C model   

    This isn't the first Avid I've installed a VW. I had good success with the last one and it would haul two people around with no problem. That was in 2003 when I sold it and it's still going. I've decided to do it all over.
    My first Avid that had a upside down 582 and had 2 engine outs. That's when I decided to go with a VW. There quite a few VW's flying here in Ohio.
    So if you know of anyone that may have a VW mount and cowling for an Avid let me know and I'll see if he wants to sell it. Thank You for your interest in this post. Neil

    Model C with HH wings. The VW was 80 HP I know it's not going to preform like a 912 but it did preform well. Prince prop was the best combination for that engine. The engine was built by Great Plains Aircraft. I don't remember the empty weight. The VW weighs 180 lbs. Yes the 912 is the best bet if one can afford it.

    I had an Avid C model with a VW and it worked great. It has to be built right and have the right Prop. Prince prop is the best combination for the VW.  It's still flying. So the VW can work. Neil

    Axle for Avid model C, Help.
    When I look up axles for my Model C I'm not sure what axle to order. One has two collars welded on the axle. The other is a straight axle with threads.
    Can someone enlighten me. Thank you for your help.
