Rotax announces revised Service Bulletin SB-912-064 R1 / SB-914-045 R1 : Periodic checking of the crankshaft journal for 912 & 914 series engines.

This revision includes the following changes:

The procedure for checking the crankshaft journal has been revised slightly; checking the oil level and purging the oil system is no longer required.

The range of affected serial numbers for non-certified (UL) engines has been updated.

Rotax has previously released SB-912-059/914-042 wherein a limited range of engines required an inspection looking for potential cracks developing in the PTO end crankshaft journal. Field experience has subsequently shown that a one time inspection is not sufficient, and therefore an ongoing periodic inspection will be necessary every 100 hours of operation and/or annually every twelve months, up to 1000 hours total engine time.

In addition, Rotax engine owners and operators should be aware the range of engine serial numbers affected has been expanded, therefore your engine serial number should be checked against those listed in the appropriate SB for your engine type (Certified or UL). Engines which have been overhauled or repaired using a new crankshaft should also have their crankshaft serial number checked against specific crankshafts listed as affected in the appropriate SB release.

Rotax has also designed a new tool that greatly simplifies this inspection requirement for engines affected. This tool is easy to use and speeds up the process of meeting compliance to the SB.

For UL (Uncertified) engines, CLICK HERE to view the revised UL Service Bulletin.

Rotax-Owner.com has released a VIDEO to help clarify in detail the steps required to comply with this  SB. For more information, view Rotax-Owner’s video.

Rotax announces a new edition of its Illustrated Parts Catalog for 912 & 914 series engines:

Rotax has released the latest edition of the 912/914 series Illustrated Parts Catalog. All parts assemblies are clearly shown with excellent exploded diagrams. It includes full parts listings for both certified and non-certified versions of both engines.

As well as the engine-specific parts, the most popular accessories are listed too. Repair tools, consumables, gasket sets, and certain items of documentation are also included in this catalog.

This new edition of the IPC is formatted to the ATA Chapter standard (Air Transport Association). All of the 912/914  engine maintenance manuals are now ATA format.

This is very useful, for example: If you are working on the ignition system you will be using chapter 74 in the Heavy Maintenance Manual, and if you need a part number or exploded view you will find the information in chapter 74 of the IPC.

Rotax has now released revision 2 of Alert Service Bulletin ASB-912-062 / 914-044

This Mandatory Alert Service Bulletin covers the inspection of cylinder heads #2 and #3 for oil leakages into the intake port on Rotax 912 and 914 Series aircraft engines.

For this revision of the bulletin, the range of serial numbers has been expanded. Please check carefully to determine if this bulletin may now be applicable to your engine!

Also affected are cylinder heads sold from the factory as spare parts between 31 January 2013 and 28 May 2013 inclusive (Cylinder Head part no. 623682 and 623687). If you’ve purchased spare part cylinder heads of these part numbers since January 31st 2013, you must check with the supplying Rotax dealer/distributor to determine if they are affected by this latest ASB revision. If so, and the cylinder heads are still un-installed in an engine, they must be returned for replacement. If the affected cylinder heads are already installed on an engine with over 15 minutes of running time, a spark plug examination for carbon contamination from excess oil burn in accordance to the inspection requirements in the ASB (latest revision) must be performed. For more detailed information on how to perform these tasks, see the Rotax-Owner video on this subject by clicking on the link below.

Revised Service Instruction SI-912-020 / 914-022 R7

Revision 7, covering running modifications on Rotax engine type 912 / 914 series.
This service instruction lists the latest modifications that have been made to Rotax 4 stroke engines and components.

Fittings or fuel line assemblies are available as individual spare parts to accommodate any style of fuel line connection to the fuel pump.
Also of note is the introduction of new style cylinder heads.
Cylinder heads on newly produced engines, and soon the supply of replacement cylinder heads will be changed to the same new casting design used on the 912iS fuel injected engine.
Aircraft OEM’s are encouraged to carefully review this entire document to see whether any of the changes will affect their engine installations.
