EGT Probe for Rotax 912 ULS engine


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a faulty EGT Probe on my Rotax 912ULS engine which needs replacing. It is used with FLYdat system.

 

Replacement of original is $290 (paying Australian criminal prices), does anyone know of a cheaper alternative/option?

 

Thanks in advance

Any of these look OK? http://www.mglavionics.com/html/mgl_accessories.html

 

Pulled from a forum......

 

I had a duff EGT probe on my 912S with flydat. The £180 for a new probe, was not going to happen, its plain extortion by ROTAX. Since they are standard K type, which can be sourced for £35 from Parts for Aircraft, bolt type made by MGL Avionics. They have sold many for Rotax engines without trouble and the replacement probe has metal braided lead 1 metre length which works beautifully

I went to buy some stuff from Lockwood. They wanted scans of documents. Drivers licence or passport and CC (front and rear).I purchased elsewhere.....

That's odd. I bought some stuff from them a while back without any problems. It was 2 years ago though.

Unless you were ordering C4

I ordered a set of EGT probes from Lockwood for my 912ULS only 2 weeks ago with no hassles whatsoever. They were shipped the day after I ordered them.

Try Lockwood Aviation. I think this is the one, but check with them to make sure.https://www.lockwood.aero/p-2542-clamp-on-egt-probe-1-12-to-2-clamp-1-tip-4-lead-nd.aspx

Should be a lot cheaper even with postage. Ask for USPS International Mail, no tracking.

Lockwood just got back to me, they sell them for $195 USD

Can you give me Lockwood's part number of those probes please.

Sorry, I was wrong. It wasn't Lockwood (that was my oil cooler stuff), it was a Grand Rapids Technologies that I got my EGT probes from.

Hope it helps.
