I'm considering the addition of an oil check door for my Allegro 2000. My question is, has anyone installed one on their aircraft, and if so do you have any information on the process that you can share?

Thanks,

Larry:

I have an oil level check "door" on my Allegro 2000. It is part of the top engine cowel, and it came with the airplane kit which I completed 2 years ago. I have over 300 hours on the Rotax 912 UL engine, and have never used the door. It is a useless addition. Here is why. Each time you check the oil level in the oil reservoir you should also check the coolant level in the small expansion reservoir on top of the engine (this is not the overflow bottle). To check the coolant level you have to remove the top engine coweling. This allows you to also check the oil level. This also allows you to inspect your engine as well. It only takes a minute to remove the top engine cowel.

I would not waste my time by adding such a door.
