We're a small group of pilots looking to buy our very first used ultralight with a 912 UL or ULS.

From the documents SB-912-041-UL and SB-912-057-UL I can see that the TBO has been increased for new engines a few times over the years. I'm curious as to how the year of manufacture relates to the TBO (since the year is all I see when browsing the used aircraft listings).

The documents specify the following serial numbers as the first engine in each TBO-"group":

912UL
- S/N 4,152,667 (TBO 1200h/15y)
- S/N 4,404,718 (TBO 1500h/15y)
- S/N 4,409,716 (TBO 2000h/15y)

912ULS
- S/N 4,427,533 (TBO 1500h/12y)
- S/N 6,775,790 (TBO 2000h/15y)


Rob, can you please also look up the year of manufacture for those engines?

Thanks

Hi Rob how are you ? could you please post some info on this engine ? #4407181 ? we need to purchase some spares from overseas (crankcase and shaft) and we need to make sure they are compatible to our 912S.. (year 2005) by the way, is there a way to figure out if a crankcase for certain engine is compatible to another one ? and also, from which serial# the crankcases for a 912UL started coming with the though-bolt ? THANKS A LOT !!

Hi Rob, how about the year of 912 ULS 100 HP serial # 4429402?

Could you tell me what is the right positioning (installation) of the WESTACH EGT probe on this serial number engine (old manuals says 7cm and the newest one says 10cm)? Which is the correct?

Thanks a lot!!!

Best regards.

Ney

I don't have access to MFG dates. Hopefully Rob will field this one.
