Wink Retrofit

Thats a big deal for a retrofit, isn't it? Do you know if Cies would provide a single sender for each tank. I can live with accuracy when the fuel is nearing the lower levels.

That's looks like a real good solution. I need to know if it will fit on the RV-12 oil cooler. Does it close off completely? Looks like it remains partially open probably for safety.

It is, indeed....

CHT

What is the truth with CHT on a Lyc.O320 / 160 HP in a RV9? Is 460 F really too much in a long climb up to the flightlevels? Is 360 - 390 good in the cruise ? :confused:

Thanks for your advice!...
