    Nice video. Does sound like you are lean. Intake leak possible amongst many other things. My neighbour had the same kind of problem and his carb had come loose so you want to check that out for sure.

    If your on wheels I think idle speed is suppose to be about 650 but on floats we like to run down around 500 for slow taxi when docking etc.

    Same experience with Tulsa engines. First class. On floats we never use our tip tanks as Aerocets have 2 huge compartments on each side so it much easier to grab fuel out of the float and add fuel...

    Very valid comments. The Cub takeoffs benefit less from that rivet induced drag than the 180 - 185 due to lower lift off speeds but still noticeable. No speed boats were ever built with raised rivets.
