    Except for the toe brakes, these were delightful airplanes. Six gallons per hour in a Super Cub!

    I would only change the brakes and seat pans - but if you must, consider the 160 hp. I have time...

    I would love to justify an MT prop for the Decathlon. One of my buddies reports that he is getting poor results from a 4-bladed prop on his Malibu. First overhaul at 350 hrs for $7 grand, then...

    Sometimes we get sneaky and think of "minor alterations." I can tell you that dope, rattle can, and Aerothane go really well on small repairs. Again, this is not Alaska.

    Well, that is a definite plus. Can you release the components that catalyze it?

    I have had no blistering on the Eko-fill under dope or Poly Tone. Of course I do not live in Alaska, and all the...

    if it is non-toxic, how come my buddy wore a full body suit and face mask? You ought to be able to spray it with a bandanna around your nose.

    I could only find a requirement for brakes in CAR 4a under transport.

    I put 1080HDs on, and realized that you cannot rotate the Hydrasorbs - the bolt holes need to be parallel (of course).

    I did them with the engine hoist method shown here in past threads. I doubt...

    If it flies, is in annual, and has no paperwork problems it is probably already sold.

    Yes, Steve - many times. Word for word after your last post. I am ready with excerpts.

    I have been searching! I apparently asked the identical question in 2019, and found a Univair statement saying the 1080s were standard. This year both Univair and Spruce say the 1080 and the 1280...

    Shock Cords on Hydrasorb Struts?

    Shop ordered 1280HDs. Aircraft is a lightweight 160 Super Cub used on paved airports only.

    Would 1080HDs be better for weekend flying? Pilot is a 120 lb blonde. Rarely carries passengers.

    I don't think such correspondence goes in the aircraft permanent records. It is just part of a formal process, and apparently they have to give you a "reasonable time" to fix your submission.

    Nice breakdown. Only change I would make is repairability - Stewarts can be easily repaired. You cannot blend the finish as with dope, but then you really can't do that with Poly Tone or Aerothane...

    If something happens to allow a nut to shear .032, I doubt that .040 will stop it. I agree, loose is better than gone, but there are places where if loose happens, something else is already broke. ...

    Doubt it. And why is .040 so important? Once those nuts start backing out you are in trouble no matter what size safety wire. The wire is not designed to maintain torque.

    The stall warning horn in my Decathlon was set to go on a full 8 mph before onset of buffet. Obnoxious on approach.
