I'm with you....I've got zero hours, but with everything open....seems like good preventive maintenance.

Default additional item to check?

While replacing the broken bracket I lifted the coils beneath the ignition modules and found the powder coating worn completely through (located at the end of the red line).I primed and painted this small area then used a washer at each end of the coil attachment to shim vertically and prevent further abrasion.

Great idea, Tom! That's why I love this blog. You get the benefit of stuff found by hundreds of owners.

Yes and it's a tool that could be precious to VANs too... If they want to listen to their customers rather than to their lawyers!

Kind of a cheap shot don't you think Jean-Pierre?

I know you haven't been around here since the very beginning, but you have been here for quite a while so I know you have seen the huge # of times there has been a response to things posted here in the forums.
Everything from answering questions to instituting design changes as a result of customer input.

And all of that when there is actually an official means of making contact with someone in engineering if a service difficulty is discovered .

It is clearly described in the RV-12 Maint. Manual, but very few seem to be aware of it.

Have to agree with Scott on this one...

That comment is just so innappropriate on so many levels I find it impossible to respond to.

This original post needs to be removed from this thread.
It isn't worth the space that it takes up

Come on guys! It's just his opinion. What happened to the country that guaranteed free speech? We don't have to like the points of view, but we should tolerate them as long as they are presented civilly.

Thank you Rich!
The only thing missing was a request to ban me forever from the VAF Forum to give me the feeling I was facing a lynching mob
