"I'd first confirm there is no power at the start/run switch when the batteries are turned off. Assuming there is no power, then I'd suspect the alternator shut-off switch is either not wired properly or faulty."
"Not sure which engine you have, but it takes a while to burb all the air from the 130's cooling system. We even removed the jiggle pin from our thermostate believing it may help vent the cooling system while filling. If the 130, do you have Viking…"
"I think he just wants a lower the idle speed to test run the engine while waiting to install a propeller. "
"Thanks for the compliment. Filing or cutting should work fine, but have you also looked at relocating the throttle lever? Hope you're able to improve on some of our ideas, and pass it on. "
"Without a propeller installed, we lowered our idle speed to between 850 and 1000 rpm by backing the idle screw all the way back. Our engine also speeds up as the temperature rises, but seemed to recall it remaining below 1200 with the idle screw ba…"
"If I recall correctly, Jan's reason not to have an ECU switch is that it just adds another failure point. "
"If we replace the key ignition switch with a stand alone start switch, which is better: 1. Keep the start relay with a low amperage start switch, or 2. get rid of the relay all together and use a high amperage start switch? If we got rid of the st…"
"Our 750 STOL has a door lock as well, but if the 701 is anything like the 750, removing the doors from the hinge takes about 10 seconds. "
"Why do you now have a stand alone switch for the alternator? Having the alternator powered by the Ignition Switch made sense?
"Just to clarify, what you call the canister/bottle, is this the new round aluminum canister Viking has been providing, or does it include the plastic reservoir we currently have for filling and venting the gearbox?"
