    We've been doing those damn colored letters for 5 years now. I was a huge hater at first but after putting them on the cub I have to admit they kind of add a little sumthin to the look. Denny we're...

    None that I've heard of. If it's real deep you may drag the pod a little in the snow but it won't damage anything.

    The above are correct. Cleveland sends out a permission letter with the STC if you buy the boxed wheel and brake kit from them. Without the permission letter it's not of much use.

    Try and be clear about what aircraft specific installation you are talking about. I assume you're referring to the A185F example above. The PMA in question covers a lot of aircraft for which the...

    Neat looking build!

    Airframes does make a 3" extended, 4" widebody shock strut. AF12844-43 measures 20.625" eye to eye. Hopefully that helps.

    The J3 tank can get an air bubble trapped in front of the filler neck when you're on big tires that may sacrifice a gallon of capacity. Whenever I was real hung up on that I would fill the tank then...

    In my opinion the brake line is not an issue. Most covered gear will have the brake line exiting the fabric below the axle and that's just the way it's done. Lots of cubs running around with brake...

    That was a good year for Bushwheels. Keep them out of the weather/sun and give them a spritz and wipe down with 303 once a month and they should last 8-10 years on average. I like to park on a sheet...

    Agreed; I really like my tailwheel with only 3 as well. Same with 3400 series tailwheels, seems like many setups run too many springs as a way to mask underlying setup issues and tailwheel shimmy.

    Just my opinion and aircraft setup but I prefer the short pawl. That's what Scott used throughout production and if it isn't broke don't fix it.

    That being said, it depends on the steering arm....

    Think about what greases where available when Cleveland first certified their wheel designs. Or when Scott first designed the 3200 tailwheel. It's easy to over-think what grease to use.

    I have not heard of any Strombergs actually developing an issue with worn throttle shafts. That's mainly a symptom of the Marvel carbs.
