    Thank you Fred. I called a friend today that works with stuff like this and he said it should be no problem. Thank you for the information. I like the wood idea as a jig / spacing tool.

    Thank you Fred. Could you give me an idea on what works best or what method you used for alignment before gluing?

    Is it ok to bring my buddy to the Avid Camp? He’s a good guy and has helped me with a lot of Airplane moving and hauling. He also lets me fly my Avid off of him private airport.

    Fixing the cowl
    I had a little mishap while moving all my Avid stuff to the Airport. My top cowling got smashed. I took it out to a guy and he reglassed one edge and fixed a spot on the bottom cowl. One of the fasteners up front had been drilled to close to the edge and split out so I had him build up that area. When I went to pick it up I could see that when he reshaped it he took to much off. Now I’m back to where I was before. I hate the body work stuff. I’m just not good at it.

    Getting settles in the Hangar
    We got the hangar all set up and I am about ready to start back to work on the final pre-inspection list. It's just a bunch of small pain in the ass stuff that needs cleaned up before the big inspection. We invited the local EAA Chapter to hold a meeting at our hangar to hopefully connect with some of the other Experimental builders/ Flyers on the Airport, Hopefully THE MACHINIST can make it down???

    I used 1/2 inch grip length with a backer washer. If the backer washer hits anything grind the edge off to make it fit right.

    I ordered mine on-line. I used a large flange rivet. You can get them in colors too. I got white because my plane is white. Here is a picture of the tag.

  23. NorthIdahoAvidflyer added a post in a topic Rotax 670 - 2 hrs TT   

    I'm sure it was built to land standards with caged bearings instead of cageless. I know Rotax Rick installs dual ignitions on these for our use. I wonder what kind of credit he would give a guy if he sent in his own engine? I have a sled near me with one of these in it for cheap. 
    I have a friend that took a 618 right out of a sled and used it in a Kitfox. He had to mill off the back and tap the holes for a gear box. He said it was a great engine. Not sure if he installed dual ignition or not.
