    Also inspect your carb heat/air filter box and cable controls. Any carb heat that leaks by the flapper when cold air is selected will reduce performance and create a richer air/fuel mixture. The...

    On weaker gear like factory taylorcraft we have to be careful about toe-in, especially on hard ice with frozen raised patches. The raised patches can quickly force the ski nose sideways. The former...

    What advantage do skis with rubber bushings have over those with solid pedestals? I've flown both but never could figure out the benefit of Federal's design. Just asking those with more experience on...

    Another option might be to put an air intake adapter (or another in addition to the original) in that sump cover plate and feed the heater muff. I did that on a PA-11 with a similar opening and it...

    I tried to post pics above but no luck. I did look up the C-170A Parts Manual and it shows what you describe, not what's in the C-170B Parts Manual for S/N 20267-25372. I'm corrected. The mufflers...
