    Nope, but we'd all use overhead hoists until they aren't available. Not available describes 99.9% of my airplane life. In this case Eddie already bought hydraulic bottles.

    High Power question. How do they seal the top? With a fixed hinge edge its pretty simple. And effective. How do you seal an articulating door?

    Suggestions on hangar size

    You could park a pickup in front of my one-piece Schweiss and I'd wager the door would move the truck. With southern exposure snow melts back from the door even in the cold months so not a problem...

    What’s the EGT spread between full rich and peak at cruise power? Your flows sound like mine used to be. No criticism, just interested in the fuel flows of different PPonks. Mine had carb work...

    Go see what the leaning authority is at cruise. That's the test that matters. It sounds like you should test yours as well.

    What power settings are you using to see 13 gph? I'm generally at...

    That's Pponk's term. Kenmore and TS call them O-520s, as do the vast majority of Pponk owners.
