    Anyone ever use a sea doo engine?
    Hi all,  was talking to a guy today, and he mentioned that he could get a near new 90 HP 4stroke engine from a Sea Doo fairly cheap.  He asked me my opinion.  Told him I would ask on here as I have no experience in that direction.  I'm guessing there's a reason I haven't heard of any being used.  Comments?  JImChuk

    Couldn't open the link, it's easy to post pictures or links to youtube videos on this site.  (even I can do it :-)  JImChuk

    I was chasing high water temps on a plane once, and tried the water wetter stuff.  Didn't notice any real difference with it.  One person said that when he was able to get cool air instead of the hot air that just went through the radiator going into his carbs, it lowered his water temps quite a bit.  JImChuk

    What type of kit was it if it was a kit?   What type of redrive?  Is it a duel spark plug engine?  Duel carb?  Has it ever flown?  Where is it located?  If never flown, are there any hours on the engine?  (was it on another plane before this one)  Any FAA paperwork?   I'm not in the market myself, but these questions might help to give more info on the plane.  JImChuk

    Is Team Kitfox off line?
    Title says it all, since yesterday I haven't been able to get on there.  Wonder if they got hacked.  JImChuk

    If you are in the process of trying to register your plane as a new build, I believe there is an option of having been built from parts.  JImChuk

    All right then,  I have a very low hour 68" 3 blade IVO I  might sell.  Right now they are going for $660 and you will probably wait for a couple of months.  I will let it go for $450 plus shipping.   JImChuk

  10. 1avidflyer added a post in a topic The value of avid mk IV kit   

    I think he is a buyer, not a seller.  It comes down to how much you want it.  Somewhere between $5000 and $10,000.  That kit probably sold for $15,000 or more then, factor in inflation and the price would probably easily be double that today.  And they aren't making them either.  Does the seller have a price?   JImChuk

    If you have the 2.58 B gearbox, that prop should work real well.  What kind of prop are you looking for?  JImChuk

    Most likely you will find that the main wheels are in front of the datum point.  In that case, they become a - number.  In other words, in front of the datum point are subtracted.  In the Avid MK IV, pilot moment is 16"  wing tank fuel is 15".  I believe the C model is the same.  JImChuk

    Wow, those are some crazy high prices, especially the colored concrete.  Unless you were just getting a small load or something.   The cement company up here always gave me good prices if I was doing something at home.  Being a construction superintendent for 20 of my construction years, I was ordering concrete from them all the time, and we knew each other pretty well.  (at least over the phone)  JImChuk
