    A commercial "O" ring which is made of BUNA N is compatible with the aircraft AN 6227 and the 5606 hydraulic fluid. In some applications it is called out as an acceptable substitute.

    Looks like an old oil & Stone surface. Not really designed for a low mounted blow torch. Looks like the Vampire's liability insurance premium will be going up.

    It is my understanding the Whirlwind props are using the design studies of the late Paul Lipps. He had some good ideas, it's too bad he went west at too young an age.

    bob has the experience with these. Often times a seal such as this appears to be a flat square sided "special" seal. An "O" ring over time forms it's shape to match where it is placed. My thoughts...

    One thing to be remembered about that particular prop. Those blades must be able to absorb all that horsepower. It takes a lot of blade area to accomplish that mission.

    pb,
    You may want to rethink the flap handle. Remember what happened to your other Cub. How would your noggin have fared if there had been an overhead flap handle?

    Don't you have the long flaps on your Cub Ron? Those performance details sound a lot like the 110" flaps on my Cub. It would be interesting to hear from someone who has the long flaps and who has...

    Don't be too quick to move the battery forward. The only advantage is to save 2 or 3 pounds of cable at the most. 150 Cubs are nose heavy in the first place. Set up a weight and balance program on...

    Where is the grease coming from? Has it been over greased getting into the electric motor? Perhaps it just needs a good internal cleaning. Grease and electricity do not work well together.
