    That is true.

    It is also true that if you have space in the rear tube as in the video, with tight wires, when you move the stab back and forth, the vertical fin will move to accommodate - in the...

    No you don't. The verical fin will not wiggle if there is no lateral motion in the stab mount.

    Another poster said you get the wires tight enough and the side-to-side motion cannot occur. I was...

    The vertical fin can wiggle, allowing what is shown in the video no matter how tight.

    Tighten one, you tighten them all. The trick is to tighten them so the surfaces are orthogonal.

    But your problem is clearly that liner tube. A new tube, properly drilled, is the cure - but if...

    Did you know that there is no TSO for tailwheels?...

    Did you know that there is no TSO for tailwheels? CAR 4a makes some kind of statement about tailwheels - maybe CAR 3 says the same thing.

    As I recall, I could not get localizer reception until I disconnected the coax from my dipole on the vertical fin and re-did the connection with a balun.

    Somebody had hooked the center conductor...

    If you are looking at legality, try studying 14 CFR 21.9 (I think). If it is the same engine, on the same type certificate, I wouldn't worry about it.

    See note 4 on Type Certificate E-205.

    You probably want that ugly oil/water mix to go overboard and cause global warming. Having cleaned a few of those tubes, I don't want any part of that back inside my engine. Looks like σκατα.

    Back in the olden days a mechanic would just execute a 337 with the STC listed on back. Now the only legal way is to get a letter from the STC holder ($). Kinda neat - like a forever patent.

    Listen to Web - and remember, you need a "balun" to hook the coax to the nav antenna.

    Also remember - com antennae do not work for nav, and vice versa.

    I had a leftover NAS bolt, so I used that. 167,000 psi. Needs a special washer, but lots stronger.

    Thanks. 23-27 figures prominently in my pile of excerpts. I have so many excerpts printed up even I need a roadmap.

    They didn't give me the chance - the denial letter was printed before I got...

    Remember, this aircraft has been flying around with these wheels for a quarter century. It can probably just keep doing that. You should see how much other stuff I found. It makes no difference to...

    Not my airplane, and doing this for free. Should have been trivial. Now it is a challenge.

    But yes - we have the Grove kit on a J3 (my partner wanted 26" tires for a rather scary backwoods...

    Cubdrvr - I get a lot of folks drifting through my hangar saying that! Trouble is, when you get to the point where you can do exactly what you want, whenever you want to, there is this big looming...

    Thanks! And thanks for the offer! I was looking for the guidance that would discuss "what if" I was trying to put Cleveland wheels on the J3 (Cleveland does have that STC). I am sure they have to...

    So, an update. I met with three inspectors. I had data out the gazoo - installation drawings, torques, static and dynamic load data, kinetic energy dissipation, maintenance data, drawings with...

    Windshields expand and contract far more than any steel parts involved. The windshield just slips into a trough, then once aligned, there are maybe five bolts or screws at the top, and maybe five...

    The Grove kit is STCd for 6" through 26" tires, and as I understand it is considerably less expensive than Cleveland. We have it on one J3 (originally 26", but now 8:00x6). Very happy.

    Used...

    When my time comes, that would be appropriate. I hope I retain enough to know myself when it is time.
    It is an age-ist comment. Why do you think they retire airline pilots at 65? Worse, why do...

    I agree. The type certificate does not call out carbs except for the C-90-8. If it is not specified in either the TCDS or your STC, it is up to the engine TC.
    It may seem strange, but the C90-8 is...

    You sure the Piper type certificate lists carbs?

    Yesterday my PMI told me radios are on type certificates. So far I have not seen any.

    Getting diaphradms is easy. Order from Univair, or make your own. You need a good rubber sheet (I used a truck inner tube) and a hole punch. Or fifty bucks. Either works fine, and lasts a long...
