Hi Jon videos arrived yesterday think the 0-200 runout is what I will go for anything below 8000 is a bargain because thats what continental charge for a crank case, saw a freshly overhauled example in UK GA classifieds for £8000, and crankcase on ebay for $2000,plus I have the manuals rummaging around on the net,what cruise speed do you get with your 0-200 cruzer , I picked the standard ch750 STOL because I thought with the 100hp engine I can get - afford there would not be much difference in cruise,Jan over at viking alludes to this on his site.Go hi tech with viking or rotax and get thru 15 litres an hour get an 0-200 and go thru 20 litres an hr, It probably is the best choice for me, brewing my own auto conversion magnifies all the problems, bespoke FWF parts, the mount aligning it, the carb, the ECU, the redrive/PSRU in the too hard basket, however should I win the lottery I will go with this :)  http://flyrotax.com/produkte/detail/rotax-915-is-isc.html

Hi Jon,

Yes I will keep you posted, we got rid of the dual alternator thanks to Robert Helms, we are still seeking advice and help on wiring, the MGL system is close and we are very close to engine start, paint and phase1.  Thanks, Art
