Listing Detail Tabs

Rotax s/n 4173577 had been installed in microlight under construction in the USA. The project was never completed, but the engine was run up from time to time.
The engine was advertised on Ebay as: "Rotax 582 Low Hour Engine", and i purchased it for US$ 2,350, Shipping & GST cost NZ$ 846$. I also decided to import a new gasket set, and more advanced pistons, on the advice of a Rotax specialist.
The landed cost was NZ$ 5,200.
The new pistons were installed and the engine checked out by a 2 stroke racing mechanic for an additional NZ$777.
Total cost NZ$5,9356.
I have since brought in a new Rotax mounting frame, exhaust pipe, priming pump (new), and fuel tank (approx 35 litres), and Rotax radiator. There is also a starter motor, but you will need to replace the existing pull start housing which you cn possibly pickup on eBay?
There is also an unfitted fuel gauge and float arm.
See photos.
The original pistons are available for inspection.
My intended use of the engine was for an experimental VTOL aircraft, but later changed to a different engine..
In NZ the engine has been run up only once and in storage for the past 4 years.
The attached gearbox is type B Rotax: 2.58:1:00 reduction
