Default 912 - Gaskets, etc - What do I need?

Hoping to move my 12 parts to a hanger for assembly soon. I need to know which gaskets I need to have on hand in order to properly service my 912ULS during the first 50 hours or so. Thanks in advance.

I suggest that you become very familiar with the Operator's Manual, Line Maintenance Manual, and Heavy Maintenance Manual for your ROTAX 912 ULS (https://www.rotax-owner.com/en/suppo...series-engines). Your first 25-hour inspection/maintenance task is critical and must be accomplished and documented in accordance with ROTAX's requirements if you are to maintain your engine warranty.

I maintain a couple of extra carburetor bowl gaskets, copper gaskets for the oil drain and magnetic plug and a couple of O-rings for the intake manifold.

The magnetic plug on the 912 gearbox does not use a gasket.

Rich was implying that there are two commonly used “Gasket Rings.” I’m sure he intended to say “crank locking pin plug” (42), not magnetic plug (35) there only a few mm apart.

Yep, Mike, I misidentified the locking pin plug.

I keep a lot of stuff in the hangar just in case, like an extra set of plugs. I mentioned the stuff I routinely need.
