Re: AG NEE MANNE

I used to far prefer Microlighters to Avcom. These days I know there is no movement on Micro and log into Avcom to pick up interesting stuff from around the world and country. I figure I will make an effort to post on microlighters and hope for a revival.

582 Big End

Recently 3 x 582 engines lost the needle roller big end bearing, pilot side. All in the Cape. 2x Blue and 1x silver. Resulting in damage through out the engine. Is this a weak point and any others out there?
