    I sure love my rk.  I'm using it on a different motor but I'd highly recommend giving it a try.
    I bet you'll not want to go back to the hardy disk.

    I'll crank it up in the morning and go at -5, as long as in a few hours the sun will help me out a little and bring it up to 10 or 15 at least.
    Pretty wussy compared to the guys in the far north that have been going out in -30 or worse over the last hundred years or so!
    I read those books...  I'm good with that level of participation

    Wow if that's your plane and your day's adventure:
    My hat is off to you for a good job getting down, and sympathy for everything that goes with that situation.

    The more I think through the remote oil tank idea I wonder if might be problematic.
    Part of me wonders if having the tank that far away might mess with the scavenge pump's ability to clear the extra oil out of the engine.  And also in a steep climb the tank might end up lower than the engine and how would the oil pump do in that case trying to lift out of the tank?
    But then again, usually I overthink things that "might not work" and  am proven wrong when people go out and do them with no trouble. 
    Like I always joke:  if everyone double thought things as much as I do, manned powered flight would still be theory LOL!

    Oh and not a well thought through idea but one way to get some weight shift might be to run the oil tank back behind the seat.   
    Not sure if it is a good idea due to the long run of oil lines but it would add some heat to the cabin too.

    Yeah Jim no slush over here at all.   A few areas where there are "snow domes" but no really bad hard drifting yet either.
    Looks like that might all change here with this next storm though.

    Yeah I love the rk on my rx1 kf5 floatplane!
    Great for the cold winter starts / warmups too!
    In talking to Teal he is planning a full end housing adapter plate for the Phazer to fit a c/e box in the up or down position.  It is on the "to-do" list of his.
    And as far as the shoulder,  338 I can see your fab abilities here and am jealous!   I'm sure you don't need my 100 level input but will throw out the idea of an exterior locating profile (since there's not room on the interior with the clutch drum so close)

    Whoops I see there in post #2 your dowels and the gearbox cut.  Missed that first read through.
    Bet that will lock it in place just fine. 
    Looking forward to watching this Yamaha build!
