    Seems like mainly hard surface. The slick tread baby bushwheel wants to skate around from what I've heard. Of course in snow I'd imagine the ski itself does okay at steering.

    Interesting that Burl is selling bunches of the Baby Bushwheel ski. All the feedback I've gotten from customers leads me to believe that the tail ski with the baby bushwheel tire doesn't steer very...

    These are the automotive or weatherhead style compression nuts and sleeves that Steve mentioned. They might work for that reverse flare type you have there. Univair shows them but I know NAPA also...

    It's a good point but at least the Wag bracket looks pretty minimalist. The Atlee one is a massive bracket for such a simple installation.

    Now I'm really torn. I like the Wag seat belt setup and...

    Oh absolutely 100% cylinder priming is the best way to go if possible but there are about 20k J3's out there, probably close to that number of BC12's and many other planes running small Continentals...

    I don't think there's anything wrong with priming into the spider. If the throttle is closed then the fuel just pools on the throttle plate and then you prop a handful of blades with the mags off to...

    That's exactly it. The overall structure of the plane (gear and fuselage) has to scale to match the load that's placed on it. A little lightweight PA-11 or J3 can run the stock gear and do some...

    57329

    Looks like a regular AN913-1D that's "drilled" for safety wire, not a vent. At least that's what my brakes have. No vent hole, just a safety wire hole.

    *edit* I stand corrected. Dakota...

    I added them to my J3 and they are by far the most used mod I've put on so far. It's nice to be able to just lock the brakes and hand prop.

    39.75" From rear gear fitting to the tab. It's basically backed up against the cluster at that location. Lots of wiggle room though, the strap doesn't have to be perfectly located.

    I believe Javron makes a round tip wing extended with the ailerons/flaps like that. I don't think there's a way to do this config without pushing the aileron out and extending the wing.
