What ever happened to the Subaru x-100 ? by Wooduuuward
I know it was a car, but it looked like a jet trainer body, riding on three wheels. It was around in 1981 or so. Had a Subaru twin cylinder engine rated at 100 mpg.

Rotax 912 Full Throttle Springs by Mark Callahan
I have recently acquired a Sea Rey equipped with the Rotax 912S engine. While familiarizing myself with the carburetor synchronization procedure, I noticed that the springs that open the throttle in the event of a throttle cable disconnect appear to be backwards. The documentation indicates that...

Sonerai Alternator Regulator/Rectifier by Pete
You could also try the 'regulator' from your rotax dealer for the 912 - altho it's truly overpriced for the crude job it does. I'd think that an automotive regulator would be the best choice also, if they can indeed handle the crude output waveforms. Cheers, Pete Europa A239
