    Contact Hal Stockman, he has a wealth of used parts.

    500 hours and counting on my 105 hp Zipper.  

    Operating at lower rpm (4000-5000) will consume some oil, but not at proper cruise rpm (5000+).

    No complaints at this time. Quality of the parts and the kit in general was excellent.

    My floats are the original floats that came with my engine when new in 1996.  They work perfectly.  If they aren't broke, don't fix them.

    Yes, I do believe it's the R107 model prop. 
    5500 is about 95-100 mph in smooth air.  I see 110-115 at 6000.  I could get a lot more speed if I pitched up a bit, but I prefer the climb performance.

    Yes, 105 hp through a 72" Luga 2-blade.  Climb out at 5700 RPM, 1700 FPM on a cool day.

    Then you make a call to Hal for a Zipper kit...

    One of the main reasons I modified the tail of the Mangy was to incorporate a trim tab.  Hindsight, I would have made it bigger...

    Another huge reason to use separate switches for the ignitions instead of the left-right-both-start switch.

    Lockwood set me up with the whole works including pins, plugs and the brackets to hold the plugs.  They had done this several times previously and had the list of needed parts at hand.  They even sent me a couple extra pins so I could screw one or two up in the process.

    I replaced the modules on my engine way back when I first got her flying and at that time rewired them for 6x6 plugs from the original 4 wire plug.  Easily done, and now I have the OEM soft start feature.

    Better off with a Jabaru 2200 than the KFM orphan, IMO.

    I have 2-piston Grove calipers and standard Cleveland master cylinders on my plane that work acceptably well with my 26" Airstreaks.
