Hi Johan

Goed om van jou te hoor, dinge hier gaan goed (Yolande het my nog nie gesky nie :lol:).

Die VP het vir n tyd gestaan (Biekie kort van geld) maar is nou weer aan die gang, ekt die ring-gear en pully laat masjien en is nou by Dynamic Balancing vir balansering. sal hom maandag gaan haal dan kan ek die engine installeer volgende naweek.

As die ouns so praat van die probleme wat hulle het by CAA dan stress ek om te dink ek moet nog deur daai hele process gaan :shock: :?

naand Cedric

Hoe gaan dit -- ons is deur n rowwe 2016 - 2017
Beide ouers siek en versorg so goed mens kan maar nou hemelkinders
My seun Pieter het sy Challenger verkoop en n Bushbaby gekoop.
My KR se de registrasie van RSA het ek hierdie week eers gekry en alles le gelukkig gereed by
Nam CAA vir registrasie - ons het net vir die papiere gewag.
Gaan nou volstoom op die KR werk so sal jou binne n week laat weet van die prop hub.
Wat gaan by my pas en die ander een kry jy
Kyk onder my Kr forum asook die KR fotos wat se interesantheid daar gebeur het.
Het jy verder gewerk aan UYT

groete vir Yolandi

Hallo Johan

Jammer on te hoor van julle leed, maar hulle is nou in n beter plek. ons hoop Helmien is darm nou gesond?

Eks bly vir jou dat jy nou weer volstoom aan die KR kan werk en dat die dokumentasie nou gesort is.

Daar is darm so klein biekie vordering op UYT die engineering op die flywheel/ring gear met die pully vir die alternator is gedoen en die engine is in. Maar dit gaan maar stadig geld is min.

volgende stap is om die paneel te doen en dan bedrading en dan sodra ek die prop hub het dan kan ek prop opsit en engine start.

Groete daar.

Hi Cedric, dit lyk nogals goed gedoen met die engine mounts. Gaan jy hom met die brandstof inspuiting loop?

Hello Cedric

Werk die thrust bearing op jou enjin of het jy dit nog nie by jou nie.
Asseblief as dit nie gaan werk nie - enigsins dan sal ek dit graag wil terug he
voor jy dit vir iemand anders gee
Miskien wil ek later n groter enjin in die KR sit

groete

Hi Johan

Its going, BUT very slowly .. :oops: :( #-o

I received the prop hub and housing you send me (Thanks again for that), and removed the hub from the housing to test fit it and it fits perfectly over the Type 1 crank shaft [-o< =D>

I will not be using your housing but the one I got from Jean Crous so now I just need to get a bearing (Jean already gave me the correct size) and then I can fit the prop .. cant wait 8-[

Now that I know where the prop is gone sit I can start with the cowl, Luckily Bosvark (Eddie) has made it easy for me he loaned me the plug he made for his cowl.

NB: On the picture below I haven't inserted the hub and fastened it al the way over the crank that's why its sticking out so far when I do it properly it will fit perfectly.

Hi Cedric
Hoe gaan die herbouing - ek sien jy soek hidroliese remme.
Whow - die volksplane is so stadig dit gaan staan van self voor jy kan rem trek.
Ek spot net met jou. Het nou my KR weer uitmekaar gehaal ( net vlerke af ) om plek te maak
vir die totale herbouing van my seun se Bushbaby . Die bushbaby word nou geverf.
Ons het alles afgetrek - verf tot op rou metaal gestrip en voor begin -
My eersste kompleet recovering job - dit is n regte 4 x 4 offroarder - sal so oor twee weke op
Bushbaby forum oor dit raporteer met fotos.

My KR is dan volgende alhoewel dit al geloop en grond getoets is
Die prop swing is uit - moet elektries kan start - dan soek ek n fixed undercarriage ( kyk uit vir my asb
vir een dan vervang ek die Intrek onderstel
Wil ook hydraulic remme gaan maar is bang dit donner vooroor teen 80 mpu oor die draad so sal eers
die dromme gebruik en ver hardloop voor ek daai stap doen

Se groete vir Yolane
