New Internal Spacer for GPL Electric Starter

For Rotax 447 and 503 Engines

GPL Enterprises, manufacturer of electric start systems for Rotax engines, has announced changes to the internal spacer on their electric starter kit for the Rotax 447 and Rotax 503 2-cycle aircraft engines. "This new spacer eliminates the shimming problem present on a small percentage of past starter kits," says GPL Enterprises president Gary Lutke. "This allows the user to install the shim, or remove it for tight-fitting installations, eliminating the need for a replacement spacer."

The new updated kit, identifiable by the green spacer, is currently being shipped with affected GPL kits, according to the company. "This change was made in GPL's quest for better customer satisfaction and product quality," Lutke notes.
