View Full Version : Help needed for wheels and brake

07-12-2010, 09:54 AM
I have no experience in building airplane....

My experimental cub was built for floats only so it don't have any brakes. I bought a set of 31'' bushwheels to put on.

- What wheels and brake part number should I use?

- Does a pair of these master would be ok . What cylinder bore? Do I need a remote reservoir?

I have lots of experience with Grove - my Cub has the original set of discs on it. The master cylinders are superb - never have to add fluid (well, I haven't added any, and I do maybe three landings a day).

If you are building a Cub, stick with what Piper did - use the castings that Gunny shows under the front seat. The Grove master bolts where that cylindrical deal is. Find out where Piper put the pedals, and put yours exactly there. You will not be sorry. No other pedal arrangement has ever been as satisfactory.
