    drifter electric fuel primer

    Hi Shane, you are spot on, that primer is the exact one, I have never had a problem with the primer as I believe it is still the original one, just looks a bit rusty but when it fails I know where to get one, only problem now is can I put 1/8 barb ends on the 1/8 thread as they say barbs 6-8mm

    The primer was on the plane when I bought it 11 years ago, thought they were a standard item on drifters

    drifter electric fuel primer

    Looking at getting a new fuel primer for my drifter and noticed on the primer "med tecnica Italy" and when I went on the internet about info on this primer, barely nothing maybe one web site but cannot get into it. Does anyone have info on this primer or point me in the right direction to talk to someone about this primer, cheers.
  8. Maybe a silly question but what is the bolt on the underside of the water pump housing on a Rotax 582 and what is the torque wrench setting for that bolt, cheers.

    General cleaning of flying wires

    What would be just a general cleaner for all flying wires on the drifter, after a little while they have lost their shine and appear a dull brown colour ( not rust ).

    Why no Radio Calls?

    "Pos Comms" are always a peace of mind, I fly a drifter and if I'm within 10 miles of an aerodrome with another aircraft/s inbound I still give a position broadcast with intentions, even though I'm slow I still want other a/c to know who and where I am.

    aileron push rod bearing

    Thanks Mick, how’s the 582 going, it was all good inside no dramas. Was it just a leaky seal on the PTO end, just curious I guess.
