    Bing 54 jet size adjustments for altitude

    I have plenty of experience dialing in motorcycle (2 & 4 cycle) and chainsaw carbs. I have a 447 Rotax with the single factory Bing 54 carb that I just put new seals and gaskets in that I will be installing on a Kolb Firestar II. The Bing is stock with the 165 main. I live at 4600'msl so I...

    Briggs & Stratton 627cc engine conversation thread

    In order to try to keep the "just the facts" threads on the Briggs Vanguard 627cc to just the facts, I wanted to make a conversation thread for people to make their comments and throw their ideas out. As I stated in the just the facts thread, I think the 627 won't produce the power I need as...

    Briggs & Stratton 993cc "Big Block" engine conversation thread

    In order to try to keep the "just the facts" thread on the Briggs Vanguard 993cc thread to just the facts, I wanted to make a conversation thread for people to make their comments and throw their ideas out. After seeing what Midwest Horsepower did on the dyno with the 993 I'm thinking I would...

    Briggs & Stratton 993cc "Big Block" engine info/no theory, just the facts!

    This is very similar to the thread I started on the Briggs Vanguard 627cc engine: We call this "Experimental Aviation" for a reason. If you are a theory person or a "thrower of wet blankets armchair engineer", please don't reply to this thread. We only want to know what does or does not work by...

    Kolb Firefly/Firestar fuselage questions

    I've read the history of Kolb pdf and gathered some info but there are some blurry parts in my mind. I know the Firestar started out as a UL with a 277. Then they made them heavier with a 447 and 503 in the "fat ultralight" years. Then they differentiated between Firestar 1 & 2. Then, to...

    Betterhalfvw/LegalEagle: still in business?

    I wanted to look into a Legal Eagle XL, but it appears their web page is gone. I know Mr. Milholand is getting older (aren't we all) so I don't know if the business is still going or not. Does anyone know if they are still in business? Thanks JD

    Vegas Cart 460 kit engine w/Ace Aviation belt redrive

    I have been scouring the net to find any information on the VC460 and Ace redrive combination. There was a thread in the forums here that talked about it but I don't find anyone using one. There is a video on youtube of a skypup using a Honda GX 390 and it flies but I can't find any specifics...
