    I finished the installation of the heater core and cpu fan.  Total cost might be $60.00 bucks.  With outside temp at 24 degrees and water temp at 174 the heater core puts out lots of heat.  Will make for nicer flying this winter.

    I just laid the cpu fan on top of the radiator and zip tied all the way around.  Its a great solution until I customize something.

    I’m curious how to install a heater core. Do I tee off the radiator line and then tee back in or does all the radiator fluid route through the radiator and then to engine?

    Fred if your flying in temperatures around 20 to 32 degrees is that heater sufficient to warm the cabin?  Thanks for your suggestions.

    Cabin Heat
    Good Morning,
    I need some advice on cabin heat.  Per the picture below a gentleman made a diverter that strapped to the muffler.  My question is if it would be okay to welding one together and weld it to the muffler or should I should strap it to muffler.  Pros and cons please.  The only reason I would weld is to keep vibration from wearing a hole in muffler where the diverter touches and to seal off any cracks where the diverter touches muffler.  What's your thoughts?

    Zipper kits are 4300. I did work myself. Very easy.

    I installed the Zipper Big Bore kit (114hp) a couple months back.  In my model C it feels like it will climb straight up.  There is so much cruise power that I cannot firewall it for fear of exceeding 130 mph. No need for the tuned intake.

    I owned a magnum.  A rotax uls 100hp was not sufficient to turn that prop.  Would be a disaster on a 582.

    T3 tailwheel Mount
    I finished all the modifications to mount a t3 tailwheel.  Added some reinforcing while I was at it .  This summer I was thinking about how much force is on the rudder cables to stop the plane short.  Decided to reinforce the rudder attach point and the brake peddle attach point just for piece of mind  
    Thanks

    Avid Flyer C Model
    Good Afternoon,
    I am thinking of buying the bubble doors for my Avid C model and am wondering if the doors are the same as the Mark IV doors.
    Thank You,
