    Thanks so much, nlappos!
    I will call Rick tomorrow. As you can see, I have zero experience with Rotax engines. All I know is, I'm not throwing myself behind a 27 yo pickled 2 stroke without an overhaul.
    It is very apparent that Rotax Rick is the guy to talk to.

    I see that Rotax Rick has very competitive prices on OH and trade in.
    Do you have a 670, nlappos?

    Isn't that a snowmobile engine?
    Would you take that over a R100?

    Advice On A Project That's Been Sitting For 27 Years
    Hi, all:
     
    New here;
     
    I recently came across an MK IV project for sale. The wings are done, the gear and tailwheel are complete.
    The original 582 Rotax (1992) is mounted and still pickled, and has never been run.
    I called Lockwood about zero-timing the engine, and the first question out of his mouth was what ignition system it had, 2 or 4 spark plug.I did not know the answer to that question, as I had assumed it was 4. The worst case scenario is that if it is the old point system, it is basically a boat anchor and unserviceable. If it is a 4 plug system, it'll cost about 3500 dollars to overhaul.
    My original hope was to extract value out of the never used engine and upgrade to maybe a 912 or something else, as I wanted to put floats on it. I'm certain that this is not feasible after further deliberation.
    So my question is, the guy is asking 6 grand for the project. What do you guys think? Bail out? Still a good deal considering I may be buying an airframe sans engine?
    TIA.....
