    Just talked to another Rotax repair station and he said he has done it before with no problems.

    Helicoil repair
    Can you use a helicoil repair kit to replace a stripped plug in a cylinder head? I should have explained it is on my 503 rotax.

    Tiny Tach
    I replaced my old tiny tach with a new one, but it reads twice the rpm on my 503. Not sure why.

    I have a Dewalt electric coat and love it. It has elements in the sleeves, collar, chest and back. I use it all fall and spring Turkey hunting.  It uses 20v batteries.

    I used the same 3M glue. It came with my kit in 1994. Still good. I used some last summer.

    Yes the fan shroud will hit on the bump out. You might be able to cut out part of the bump out to make it work though. I didn't think the extra inch or two was worth messing with so I went with the flat firewall.

    If you use the 503 you have to use a flat firewall so you will lose some legroom with that installation.

    The 503 is a plug and play engine.  It's a pretty easy installation.

    I will take pictures of my installation this weekend and post them. I hope that will help you. This has worked good for me.

    I have have been running my 503 for 24 years now.  Dual carb, dual ignition. I switched to mixed gas. The oil injection was a pain in the ass. Burning 5 gallons a hour at 5950 rpm. Cruises 69 mph. As light as you are it should do pretty good if your airplane is light. My Bandit started at 456lbs, but now is around 485 or so. I am using a 3 blade ground adjustable 66" ivo prop. I am thinking the 582 is the same mount as the 503. Does anybody else know for sure?
