    I grew up flying stick & rudder, pitch & power. Still do. I feel sorry for the new crop of GA pilots who are driving airplanes because they never learned how to fly them.

    That was exactly my first impression. I liked the modest improvement in elevator authority, but the slightly increased sensitivity of the rudder put me off a bit, at first. After a few trial flights...

    That has to be a significant factor. With regard to the first part of your post, keeping the lower cowl sealed against external air entry must help. I went on a campaign a couple years ago to seal...

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned, with regard to carb heat, is leaning. Whenever I have to use heat, I lean to restore my EGT to around 1360, which is where mine typically cruises at sea level on...

    A good digital EGT is another good indicator. If it drops more than about 20 for no obvious reason, you're probably starting to develop ice.

    It CAN be broken in successfully with the 82-41 but you better keep it at a solid 2600 in cruise to achieve a decent MP number. Manifold pressure is what it's about during break in. There's no added...

    With a CS prop at a given throttle opening, MP actually does increase somewhat as you pull the prop back, unless you are at or near full throttle. With a fixed prop, I'd want more load than an 82-41...

    It broke in cruise trim. It happened apparently when I attempted to crank it up. I had no indication it broke, no "pop" through the crank, etc. Just the stab didn't move.

    I'll do that Steve. It broke right at the bottom of the yoke, just like in post #12 above. I'll put up a good pic of the fracture once I get it out. It'll probably be a couple days before I get to it.

    Agreed, a spring flattens from losing it's temper (like me) through years of load and cycling. If annealed, re-arched and re-tempered then it's basically new again. Otherwise you're just buying a...

    I may be looking at a Dodge next time. The truck you rode in (F150) has been great but the F350/6.7 diesel just coughed up an engine. There went my new LyCon motor.

    The strut brackets are parallel to the spar brackets in both cases, so I don't think that would be an issue.

    Why one mag? Shutting one off effectively retards the timing slightly but has no other effect on fuel demand. The optimal mixture will still be the same for a given load condition.
