    I would wonder if you could just get your feet in a position to enable a kick? IF that had been the right wing instead of the left, it certainly would have been nice to have a fully openable left...

    Hoist the plane over the floats at the proper location and angles. Be fussy, make certain the alignment is perfect. You may find there are slight angular differences between the bolt alignment and...

    I remember seeing something about those floats years ago. As I recall there was a disconnect in the method of connecting with the FAA and their procedures for approvals.

    What Bob says. That wear is not obvious to the casual looker. Also place a dab of grease between the plunger and the piston. The plunger wobbles slightly on the piston. Only one O ring is needed for...

    They have the correct one in the picture but don't seem to offer it. The others are all standard "Aviation" snips.

    I found a set on E-bay a week ago, but they are gone now. I've had these for 50 years. Someone was selling them in Sport Aviation magazine.

    Oops Charlie found some.

    Don't throw in the towel too soon. You are not far from having good brakes.

    That's what I'm talking about too. The caliper pistons don't move much, so they require very little fluid from the master to apply the brakes.

    The pistons do not return 100% of the distance. If your brakes are dragging you have too much fluid in the system. Take out a couple of drops. Fill the cylinder only to the bottom of the brass...

    I have the "stock" split doors on both sides of my Cub. It is just as sturdy as a one door Cub and I use both doors on nearly every flight.

    Thank you for the memories of flying in the far north. I visited several of those places Ft. McMurry, Yellowknife, Tuktoyaktuk, Inuvik and others 40 years ago with my 185.

    Look at the physics of a tail wheel vs a tricycle landing gear. The further forward of the center of gravity of the main gear of a tailwheel airplane, the more tendency there is for a ground loop....

    It's easy to make your own. Most any aluminum sheet will do. Try to avoid the soft stuff.

    With my Brownie box camera? That would have been more entertaining had there been some of today's modern camera equipment handy. Like Farmboy's 360 degree swivel camera.

    Can't you just mount a mirror on your crane boom which you can see from the Cab? Maybe paint a couple of stripes on it for alignment purposes?
