    The two 185 graphs are the same as mine.
    Maybe the one I have is from a 180?
    Can't recall who sent me the scan,
    as neither of the early 180 owners manuals I have (53 & 57)
    have any engine out /...

    Can you post a scan or photo?
    Or give us a example--
    for example, Eddie's chart shows 20 miles of glide from 10,000'.

    My question / comment is only about the POH best glide graph.

    I believe Eddie has a C180H.
    Different gross weight, correct.
    May be why it shows 85 mpg glide instead of 80.
    That's a pretty...

    Curious what year POH that's from.
    The owners manual for my 53 model doesn't have best glide info,
    nor does the 1956 owners manual that I have.
    Somebody was kind enough to send me this scan of the...

    Just a thought....I remember reading a Berry Schiff article years ago where he suggested in some situations trimming to "minimum sink" airspeed might be better than trimming to "best glide" speed....

    High pitch / low pitch terminology always confused me.
    Judging from the sink rate results,
    I'm assuming "low pitch" means fine pitch (blue knob pushed in),
    "high pitch" means coarse pitch (blue...

    No, you can see in the video that the RH wing comes off just after/as the LH wing impacts the ground.
    So either the failure was transmitted to the carrythrough structure, or ?

    I would guess that the "authorities" are gonna be more open to road op's for something like cropdusting,
    than for "it's in front of my house" or "just because".

    FWIW I believe that 4ply 800x4 tires are approved on the TCDS.
    I believe that they are approved on the C120/140 TCDS.
    Not 850's but maybe the next best thing.

    On a similar vein, I'm thinking about adding a non-STC'd / non-TSO'd (aka "experimental only") 6 point CHT / EGT to my C180.
    This would be in addition to the required single-point CHT, so is it...

    A friend of mine has a 320-powered 12, his uses the stock mount but it has some of the tubes beefed up--
    I believe you split a larger tube & weld it in place around the stock tubing.

    most notably, a scaffold-- one support was hit by a truck and collapsed,
    bringing down the whole structure.

    That stinger is $2200.
    If replacing mine is the solution,
    I think I'll continue to mask the problem.

    I think it's just an adjustment thing though--
    so far no shimmies, after tightening the...

    Same load as usual for day-to-day local ops, minus the pilot.
    Tailwheel head angle looks about level or maybe even leading a little (vs...

    Tightening 2 more flats didn't stop the swiveling,
    it's stopped the shimmying.

    I used a wrap of velcro fuzzy around the wingroot vent cans in my C180 to prevent them from rattling & self-opening.
    Worked great.

    Was there a "runway closed" NOTAM?
    Although I rarely check notams unless I think there's a specific reason to,
    I admit I would be at fault if I landed on a closed runway- X'd out or not.

    Yes, but tightening the kingpin nut also compresses those springs.
    Don't know any other way to do it, except maybe add spacers to each spring--
    like adding washers to an oil pressure relief...

    50psi on the 10" t/w tire, good angle.
    I'll get a pic of the angle later today.
    Not much you can do if the angle is trailing,
    never heard of re-arching a stinger like you can a leaf spring.
