    Only have a couple more FAA guys to pay off, and I think I’ll have enough of them on my side to get an AD out against those lettering kits. Gabe is an alright guy, but I can’t forgive him for...

    That’s tho most accurate comment here so far. Nothing more depressing than taking an amazing wheelplane and putting floats on it and turning it into a dog... always amazing how it’ll pull a beast...

    I think technically youíre limited to stock gross unless you have 2960ís- stc is pretty plain on that in my opinion, and I sign these things off. That being said, the airplane hasnít ever...

    I was told the only difference between d’s and e’s is the thickness of the bottom skins- same shape, etc, but I’ve never verified that. I run a 180j with a set of d’s that were supposedly upgraded...

    Had a rag wing 140 with a o-290 in it and it stalled as meekly as any cub, but I did almost die in an overgross downwind turn but that’s another story...

    Funny- I’ve done a gazillion of screens and filters, and I detest the drool associated with unscrewing the filter and then the mess of cutting- I find the screens easier to deal with on most...

    Flying it regularly does far more for it than any fancy filter adapter will- I know a 135 operator that runs 360’s to tbo regularly with 100 hour oil changes and screens... but they fly a lot... ...

    Legal, but why? You don’t have to remove fairleads or pulleys to change- snip end off old cable, heat-shrink tube new cable to old, pull through, crimp one end, rig, crimp other.

    What both guys said is true. But don’t pass up an opportunity on a decent square wing cub, regardless of what ailerons it has. Don’t know anything about the cuff, but have flown stock airfoil...

    All that being said- I’d look at the exact same things on a 470 powered 185 as if it had the 520. The 470’s are great engines- i or o. As close to bulletproof as anything continental ever made...

    Yep- know of one that the little raised plastic trim piece that prevents turning the selector to the “off” position was omitted after annual- normally if the handle is aligned fore/aft, you’re on...

    Minor point, but “off” crossfeeds just like “both”. Gotta select left or right to prevent cross feeding. Inner spool in the valve has ports forming a “T” shape.

    I get the theory behind Clyde’s argument, but manufacturers drawings and tc’s don’t spell out what is major/minor. Piper also had drawings for pk screw layout for fairings, interior panels, etc. Is...

    About 4 minutes- land, kick out the photog, he films the takeoff, and subsequent landing, gets back in, and you’re gone. Cover up n-numbers, and you’d be done long before anyone made it aboard. ...
