hello - call from Denmark
we have long discussions in the UL clubs about the influence of alcohol in the petrol on rubber and plastic parts of the engine.
i myself have noted softening of the rubber hoses and surface changes on the floats in the swimmer house of the carburetors.
in Denmark we can not get automobile petrol without alcohol and I would like that problem dealt with in a maintenance video.

The videos are a super helpful reference and easy to follow. We have a fleet of 4 airplanes running 914. I would like to properly check and use the tcu monitoring software for the 914. It's gotten more complicated now that the new computers don't come with a floppy disk drive and the older older type serial connectors. It will be helpful to know how you do it with the new laptops or tablets.
Thanks.

Thanks for having this contest! I know this is very basic however there are many "experts" out there with different suggestions. I would like to see a video on how to properly start a series 912, cold start, normal start, hot start and include with and without the soft start module. Also that could be included in this is how best to heat the engine for a cold start.
Thanks again!

I'd like to see a video on various methods for proper power settings on the 912UL such as MAP, RPM, fuel flow?, etc. I think there's a lot to this topic such as proper settings for in-flight adjustable props, ground adjustable, fixed pitch, etc. Plus many pilots fly without MAP, what's best in each situation. How to determine optimum settings given a variety of installations and configurations.

Thanks

Some suggestions for instruction video's:

I have a 582 so my requests are for the 2-stroke engines (There are already so many video on the 912...)


- How to replace the O-ring in the rotary valve

Sometimes you find video's on Youtube but is would be better is they were from Rotax.

Hi,
We have a 912S on a Scheibe Falke SF25 motor glider and last year we have a lot of troubles with rough running engine.
We have checked a lot of things and currently I'm checking the Carbs. I would like to see an instruction video how to adjust the idle mixture screw. I do not mean the factory adjustment of 1.5 turns, but correct adjustment with a running engine.
Thanks in advance

I have a second suggestion, Aircraft Franz in Germany sells a caliber for adjustment of the carb float support bracket arm. I suggest to make a video which shows correct use of this caliber.
Best regards,
Hardy

A commissioning and fuel flow video prior to first start - I would like to see it for 912ULS, but I guess you could do one for each engine...

Thanks for a great resource! :cheer:

Suggestion: Spring clamps or worm clamps?

When I purchased my Diamond DA20, the previous owner "mechanic" had used worm clamps on all the water hoses. Another pilot/mechanic told me that spring clamps are better because they expand and contract along with the corresponding heat. Then at Oshkosh this year, I got a good look at a new 912 engine and saw lots of spring clamps. However, when I swapped a few clamps out, I could not get them to stop leaking. What clamps are the right ones to use and where?

Did you use new hose? I think if you put spring clamps on old hose they would leak as the hose would still have the imprint of the worm clamp. Rotax advises you to position the spring clamp back into its imprint if you need to remove/reinstall a hose.
We have been very happy with the spring clamps.

How about a video detailing the 200-hour (?) "inspection" of the carbs?

A video on trouble shooting and inspection of vacuum hoses and other parts like carb flanges- I had a oily substance covering my intake tubes and no one could tell me what caused it - finally figured out it was a carb flange crack in the rubber and was invisible and only leaked under turbo pressure when running, and the oily covering was dried up residue from fuel leaking out of the socket
