Greetings,

I'll be installing a 912 on the Slingshot, and I've been looking around for pictures of similar 912 installations. With all the the stuff you have to mount for a 912, there seems to be no standard location from the few pictures I've seen. I'd be interested to see where others have mounted the radiator, reservoir, oil tank, and oil cooler.

The oil cooler is the one item that appears to be mounted in the same place by nearly everyone. Typically it hangs off the back of the engine mount, but they make two oil coolers, a small and large. I've seen both used, so now I'm not sure which one is needed for TN latitudes?

I've seen the radiator in front of the engine, but that may interfere with the BRS canister.

I'll be putting the fuel tank where the rear seat would be, so there's an open area below the engine. Unfortunately, I don't think any of this stuff can be mounted inside there.

Thanks,
Rusty

Rusty,
I don't know if Ralph Burlingame from Michigan is on here but he is on the Facebook page. Maybe he could take pictures of his Kolbra with a 912 ULS for us. Have you watched his videos on YouTube? Might see something there too.

Can you email me at davidrgerdeman(at)gmail.com ? Slingshot talk...

Good ideas David. I found some nice pictures linked to his FB page, and made some captures from videos. If I need any specific details, I have to believe he'd take some pictures since he doesn't seem to need much of a reason to use his camera.

I noticed that he's got the smaller oil cooler, but most of his videos have snow in them too. He also doesn't have a BRS in the way.

I considered mounting the BRS in the rear of the plane, but there isn't enough room. The only other option is on the bottom of the fuselage, pointing backwards of course. With the proper routing of the bridle, it's not a bad option really.
