Just something to look out for- I almost had a BAD day Sunday. We have been chasing a slight vibration that we thought was in the tailwheel wen I landed and felt it through the right brake. It broke where the bead of the tire seats- it was around the inner wheel half about 4 inches. We do land off field some but nothing like the guys up north or out west. It is apparent that it has been broken for a long time and it finally decided it had enough.
This had the Cleveland conversion on it and we have been running 8.50x8 tires.
If it had let loose I would have definately ground looped as the wind was a direct 15kt crosswind.
A new set of wheels will be here tomorrow and we should be going quickly.
