    Does the Sky-Tech XLT starter need a hole in the front cowl ?

    I am putting a O-360 in my super cub. I haven't had a starter for 20 years. I am being talked into a starter. I might. If I bot on the Sky-Tech XLT, which someone said was the lightest on the market, would I have to cut a hole in my nose bowl to accommodate the XLT? I hope not but maybe someone can tell me.

    NL and HT models don't need a hole in the nose bowl. XLT will need a hole.

    Yep, you need the hole. We switched gears and swapped an NL for an XLT. Here are some pictures. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&sour...=1569584214637
