    Under what circumstances would adding a non structural support tab be considered to be a structural repair? I don't see that the quoted para is equivalent to "43.13 sez don't braze to structure."

    Ok, thanks. I should have read the service memo before posting. Now I have read it I see that it is not expected to give full spar strength as it can only be applied outboard of the lift strut.

    Do the drawings exist that allow spliced PA-25 spars to be used to build the PA-18 or was this a "hope no one will notice" production line change.

    I don't see anything there that would have prevented my fitting owner produced brake pads without approved drawings. What specifically would have made that illegal or not airworthy?

    I agree that partial fuel could be an aggravating factor. Under hard braking all the fuel that would have been at the back of the tanks in 3 point attitude will move to the front of the tanks. This...

    What do you suppose would be the answer if, as I proposed, the aircraft with the large tires was subject to the same deceleration as the aircraft with the small tires?

    It must be nice to have options like that. Where I fly in AZ a Cub is very seldom in glide range of a spot as nice as that. The places that the locals call airstrips aren't even as nice as that.
