Rotax engine valve recall.

Unread post by Peter Bailey » Fri Dec 21, 2018 6:10 pm

Rotax have issued an effective grounding of some 914 and 915 engines , due to a sodium filled exhaust valve manufacturing problem. It is specific to about 700 engines manufactured over I quess the last 12 months. Be aware that if they fail it will lead to serious engIne failure. See the Rotex web site for the details . I am awaiting new sodium valves to be replaced on arrival from Distributor.
So much to do , so little time !
