Re: Carb needed

Sven, thanks very much for your kind offer.
I have found someone who can test and possibly service my Tillotson. It's on way to him currently. So let's wait a few days to see whether he can fix it.
If he can't then I will definitely need yours.
Thanks Malcolm

Re: Inverted fuel

Neil,
Are the Rotecs now approved?
Have you used one or do you have details of someone who has?
There is an Ellison ELS-3A going on ebay currently, wondering if that's an option to replace my Tillotson.
Also, is there any support for Ellison any more?

Thus I am looking for a replacement. Anyone got something suitable that I could buy or even better borrow ...

Re: Engine removal

Paul, thanks a lot for a most comprehensive reply. Mine is supposedly a Mk 3 but not sure what an"attachment backplate" or a "rod end assembly" is. I definitely have free moving spacers though. The pictures are very useful. Moving the fuel tank is not so easy with mine as there a...

Re: Leburg

Neil, aircraft is based at Beeches farm just off A46 between Newark and Lincoln. I will try to get some photos and post them. It's looking to me like I will need to remove the fuel tank.

Re: Engine removal

I have a VW engine. The top left engine mount (as viewed from prop end, in the bell housing doesn't appear to have a nut. The mounting point has a thick circular part which looks like a spacer but which is I think actually part of casting. See picture. https://photos.app.goo.gl/PEKqGynuvYhUwDcF7 I b...

Re: BUNGEE APPROVAL

What is the mod number for replacing undercarriage with 1080 shock cord?
(My Nipper has shock cord at moment, but 6 smaller rings rather than two 1080 cords. Awaiting info from LAA on the mod which was 11001.)
