Re: Wanted: Continental -8 Rear Case, for filter mod

Hi Colin Yes I am very pleased how the Continental-12 oil filter adapters have turned out, just need more demand for them. Thanks for your kind offer, however I do now have a rear case for the -8 now. The -8 oil filter is now being drawn up, hope to get the paper work in to the LAA in the next month...

As always with these thing the devil is in the detail.

Yes there would be a weight penalty of may be around 5Kg.

At the end of the day only pilots below a certain weight could fly the Luciole with full fuel.
