    For sure, some do have strange rules, but I don't know of any that require the boats to be out of the water. I know the lake I live on was privately developed and is privately owned. They don't...

    I moved here after 32 years in the dry cool air of the mountains of northern NM. The summer humidity here makes the air thick enough to slice and serve on a plate at times. But that's why we have...

    FWIW, I spent a number of summer vacations flying around the country looking at real estate and airports before I retired. I landed in the Ozarks of North Central Arkansas in a small village built...

    The Champ uses a unique air box that has the top mounted flush to the carb as opposed to having a short riser welded to the top of the air box like most other planes. So the Champ does require a mod...

    The LiFePo4 chemistry is significantly different from the LiPo. It's less prone to over heating, and if overheated, will not decompose like a LiPo. The Phosphate based Cathode will not burn and is...

    I plan to pop in during the day. I was over at Gaston's a couple of times this week. Kind of splashed in last week. Runway had dried out and was in great shape this weekend.

    Also pretty awesome for removing and hanging wings so you don't have people squirming around holding them wanting you to hurry. Just get a couple of geezers to...

    They sell the same configuration with a true 2 part polyurethane clear coat. Turns out it's the same polyurethane clear coat I bought in a 1 Gal can plus catalyst when I repainted my truck several...

    That is correct, although I don't know what FAR or handbook they use as a basis for that conclusion. A number of years ago a friend dinged his amateur built experimental plane with an O-320-H2AD...

    I've not seen this one before. Thank you. Looks like the operation is similar to the original Emag except that the static timing point is fixed. If you can't get an Emag to time with the MP port,...

    This is a surprising amount of discussion over a 4 year old article and an issue that has been known for close to 10 years. Champion claims they have fixed their production issues. Who knows? ...

    I don't use the split seals anymore; even on a flanged shaft.

    I remove the spring from the seal and attach it back together behind the crank flange. Submerge the seal in a cup of water and put...

    I've had a couple of issues with the Pmags. Still really like them, but #1) had an edge connector fail, which caused one P-mag to lose two cylinders. Emag repaired for free, but had to turn around...

    I assumed that he meant a stud threaded into a boss in the opposing case half.

    A helicoil is a good fix for a pulled stud. I'm not going to look up the reference, but it's a common repair (and I...

    The API 6131 is a fine tailwheel for a light weight plane and would be a super tailwheel for a J-3 or Champ, but in my opinion, is too narrow and light for a SuperCub. I have the single fork version...
