Posted

I have an 700E for sale for $4000. I do not know the time on it but it looks and act like a low time engine. I removed it from my Gull and tried to keep all the wiring intact without cutting anything. It is a higher serial number so has a 1000 hr TBO. This engine new is now $10,998.
IT starts, idles and makes good power, no smoke, no leaks, I just dont have a logbook with it.includes oil cooler, oil tank, and hoses. Oil cooler thermostat. I also have a new $900 EIS (engine information system) with all this including wiring and all so should be easy install. Read, OAT, CHT left and rt, EGT left and right, oil pressure, oil temperature, voltage, tach, hours meter warning light is anything gets outside of the set parameters.

I also have a new 3 blade Aerolux pusher prop, 69" white, still in box for $800. reply to this add or call 907-378-9632 or exfaa@outlook.com

I have a set of new wheel penetration skis, 51" long, 12" wide with UHMW bottoms. The wheel protrude just a tiny bit so you can land on asphalt and still go land on snow. These skis are off a ridge runner but are the same design as the ones kitfox and avid flyer made years ago. You can extend the UHMW plastic past the edges of the skis if you want more flotation in the snow.They come with the axles and some rigging. I have the plastic bottoms, just not shown. reply to this add or call. Thanks for looking

Yesterday you were putting this on your Fox what happened? I only flew behind an HKS once and it was a gutless wonder compared to a 582 in the same plane. Sure felt like a LOT more difference than 5hp. Plane was not an Avid but I wouldn't have put two people in it with the HKS. Fuel burn is incredible on it but that was about all that impressed me.

The HKS is a great little engine, but realistically it is comparable to a 503 as far as power is concerned.  You are right, Joey.  It's no 582 replacement.

I believe Zadwit has (rightly so) determined a 912 is a better fit for his Model IV Kitfox.

I think so as Well cause you can't beat the 912 and I will go that way when the bmw gives up the ghost

you  are all correct. The HKS is a poor engine to installl in a kitfox. Someone out  side the group sent me a message and he has been fighting the  installation for 6yrs. Overheating problems, low power output. He said  same thing, makes a kitfo a single place plane and even then performance is  piss poor. I guess if they were a red hot deal there would  be lots of them. I posted the engine for sale on here not so much for kitfoxs but you guys might know someone who needs an HKS for some other design..I just cant throw any more money at it....

So when you guys mount that style ski Is it like a 3/8th rod that slides all the way through the axle?  Also what do you do with the bearing grease cap?

The first skis that I had were like this on my Bungee gear.  I had a second dust cap with a hole in the middle.  I put an o-ring on the shaft going through the middle and it sort of kept the grease inside.

 

I have a buddy with a Ridge Runner project that would love to go 4-stroke.  HKS would work well on that one.  I sent him a link...

Mike Ricketts has an HKS in his Avid, and it seems to perform fairly well.  Everything I've read about them indicates they are much closer in power to a 503 than a 582 though.  The big thing is how much weight are you expecting that engine to pull around.  Remember that when the first Avid Flyers came out, they were powered by a 440 Cuyuna engine.  Those planes were very light though.  JImChuk
