Homemade Pre-Heater

Postby scubarider2 » Sun Jan 24, 2010 12:22 pm

Just wanted to show you my homemade pre-heater for the Rotax.  All I did was take a ceramic heater and a dryer kit and mounted it with JB Weld.  So far it has worked beautifully.  I just put a blanket over the cowling and stick the hose up into the lower cowling and put it on a timer.  I usually heat it for about 2 hours and it starts in 20 degrees weather WITHOUT choke.  Here is a pic:
