Converting from a hand prop to electric start Varieze

VariEze Yesterday, 09:02 PM
Greetings, So my Verieze prodject started with a complete airframe but no engine, due to limited funds I ended up with a C85. Previously it was built with an O235 but was taken off from another home builder that just wanted the engine and mount for his project. It was originally built without a starter and was hand propped but for my own safety I went with the sky tech starter. Originally the battery it has is only a small motercycle 12v battery and is not sufficient to crank the engine. Another problem i foresee is the added weaight of the new cables, celinoids, and larger battery. I'm o...

I'm curious about building a Long EZ and was wondering where do I start? It seems like plans are hard to find. Would I purchase foam cores from eureka cnc or try the hotwire method?

De-watering an engine

General Engine & Fuel System Topics 21 Oct 2016
I have had a bad experience with rust so I keep a dehydrator on my engine that runs about three hours per day.  It probably doesn't help cylinder walls much but I hope it helps the cam and lifters.   http://forum.canarda...31&postcount=40 http://www.canardzon...roject/?p=57071   Another thing I do is blow the moisture out of the engine if I'm not going to fly for a few days (pic)  This is a 12V air-mattress pump from Walmart (pic).   When I turn this on, I will see 3-4 seconds of moisture come out the breather.  That moisture, left in the engine, would cond...

Hi gals (any out here?) and guys    Living in the heart of Europe... Been flying a Varieze for 4 months now...
