Anybody install the optional 68k capacitor on the battery? Also, the UL manual says that extra protection circuits are not to be installed on the alternator but some have installed over voltage protection relay circuits. Can others enlighten me?See More

I did order mine for Aircraft spruce.   I ended  up needing some 90 deg ports off the top and was able to order them directly from Andair.  Surprisingly,  I received them in about a week.   I have heard that they have less than good response times.   They proved me wrong.  It is a well built valve.   I had one in the RV 10 that I built before the cruzer.

Also John  I'm using a 2300 VW/Porsche Engine(direct drive)... I'm not building a standard pulley, I'm using the flywheel end(the proper end)!!!   These engines are use in Europe and one company has a certified design!   The Porsche engine was used in the Moony's year ago!

Hey John

I don't think or remember what the ohm readings on the iss senders???  I did use the IIC senders as well as the gauges.   I purchased my senders from Van/s and my gages from ACS.  Vans use the same gauges but they have them branded with the Van's name on them!!!!  ACS is the best place to buy the IIC gauges and senders from.  As long as you use the same senders as the gauges it did not matter!!!!

Hope that helps... I have switched over to building the 750 Cruzer now as it came out just as I was finished redesigning all of the mods that the CruZer came out with!

The UL engine is awesome. A friend of mine has one in his 701.

I have a 601HDS with a Rotax 912, which is a great engine.....but if I had to change out in the future I would certainly think about the UL as a replacement.
