    I finally got a chance to fly the new Catto prop this afternoon!

    1) At idle, it was pulling harder. On the very slight uphill grade from my hangar, at about 800 rpm, I had to stand on the brakes...

    It arrived yesterday! Beautiful!
    Now I just need some time and reasonable weather to do the swap. My hangar is un-heated and it's still around zero (F) here.

    I'm not an expert on these things, but sounds a lot like a Zenair 701, even more like an 801.

    Strange Cylinder Base Bolts

    The bolts on the base of the cylinders on my old O-320B2B are for internal wrenching. The socket is not hexagonal but rather looks like it needs a Torx-type wrench.

    Fuel Drains

    I'm getting tired of replacing those Saf-Air fuel drains. They don't seem to last long before they start to drip.

    My Catto 84-36 should arrive in a couple of weeks. It will replace a Borer 82-42. I'll try to get some performance numbers.
