    Thanks. No chance that I will use a starter solenoid for a master. You all covered that last year, and Wendy's story of course clinched that.

    Parallel. Take a simple tape meaure and check front center and back center. On your tires any toe in more than about 3/4" will give you trouble. Much better to have less than 1/2" difference, but...

    Yep. And Cub brakes as well, and Stinsons - usually folks just come to me for brake bleeding, and I safety wire that little lever forward. Steers better that way. On the Clevelands, apparently that...

    Spruce has Aeronca caps for under $20, both vented and non-vented. Look a lot more like original Piper caps than the ones from CC and Atlee.

    Once in a while you can get the pins too slippery and set up a chatter.

    Building time and instructing? A J3 is better, and at this point a more economical choice.
    Instructing in the 12 is ok, but you don't have great views of the countryside back in that hole. And if...

    I should add to that. Sensenich makes good props - I have an airworthy prop with a 1952 overhaul sticker.

    The interface between metal and wood is critical, but more so out near the tip. ...

    We can’t answer you because the federales now want all prop work done by approved shops.

    As as far as I can tell, only aux. fuselage fuel tanks require that the 337 be on board.

    You can't just send a 337 in (well, you can, and nobody looks at them for validity any more) - you need "approved data." The DER may be able to generate that, but an IA cannot.
