    Forgot about that. Even if the coolant doesn't make it onto the windscreen it's nasty to breathe and it can really fog up the inside of the canopy really badly. We had a minivan that had the heater core leak and I got a headache every time I rode in it till it was fixed and like I said the windows fogged over and the defroster couldn't really clear it off.

    Here's a specs page translated into English


    I'm a little surprised that, at 75% power, the 80HP acft could cruise at 140 kts (260 km/hr) ("Plane" version, non ULM). It looks to be a "clean" aircraft overall, but those slotted flaperons look "draggy" to me. But if they've measured it, that's surely more credible than my unprofessional eyeball estimates.

    the engine is a car

    Citroën AX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    No company convert this engine.

    Only in the plans of Gazaile, there are instruccions.

    If you have knowledge of mechanics or mechanic friend, it's easy, and visit the websites of the builders gazaile.....

    I'd be very careful about using an engine that you may have trouble getting parts for.

    Ron getting part may be difficult? i seems to like diesel engine conversion more than petrol, as most conversion on KR series are either VW or subaru but using such less fuel with long trip makes it more attracting to me.

    Yikes haven't been back on this thread in awhile! Sorry guys!! I stopped translating the plans when life got in the way...I'm working on getting my A&P ratings right now. Besides that, I lost everything when my last computer died and the harddrive quit on me :( Still looks like a nice little plane though.
