    Congratulations! You’ll fill the tanks on your way to Alaska!

    As far as I know, just those two. Longmont has grass by the runway too, but it is a very active airport with year-round skydiving ops. I wouldn't try it there. Then there's Fort Collins, which now...

    Sometimes hard to get a hold of Kevin (de facto airport manager). There are hangars with space. I'll be out there Sunday. Greeley has grass beside runway as does Van Aire--but you do NOT want to...

    Platte Valley 18V has both grass rnway and hangar spaces avail.

    Don't have the fuel receipts. Would be more "scientific" to do a say 100 mile x-c twice on same day and measure fuel burn that way. But I'm not that interested, as I suspect the differences are...

    Very wise advice George! I didn't track fuel burn--never thought to look at that for comparison purposes. That's amazing that you gained 6mph on the tape-over-the-gear. Wow.

    I did a Denver to Ames Iowa trip, 500+ miles ea way, twice two summers ago. First time on 6x8.5 tires and second time on 35” Bushwheels. Tried to carefully track speeds at the same power settings....

    That picture of the failed Acme shocks was around on the previous thread on this topic. I talked to both Matt & Eric at Acme regarding the whole story behind the picture. They are stand up company...

    I love my Acme Black Ops Gen 3 shocks. Top notch customer support from a company owned by veterans too. I have probably 200+ hours and 400+ landings on them—no bounce on even a no flair short field...

    Again, thank you!

    Stayed a couple of nights at Ryan Field. Very nice shelter. Having the loaner SUV there was also key as the field is a long walk from anywhere. We were very thankful for the RAF volunteers who...

    What does your cowl look like? Intake area? Outlets? Std cub style cheeks at sides or very tightly cowled? If you don't have sufficient airflow in/out you won't ever get proper cooling.

    When I talked to Scott at D&E, he wouldn't reveal who the vendor is that he sourced his parts from. At that point, I started to review pictures from all the vendors I could readily think of, and...

    Different part material is an excellent question/point Gordon. I don't know how to assess that.

    No, Steve, I don't know for a fact that one vendor makes this common part. I'm drawing a conclusion (which may be incorrect?) from the pictures (as seen above). If I'm wrong, then I apologize for...
  21. Certified part examples from Univair & Wag Aero. ...

    Certified part examples from Univair & Wag Aero. Sure look like one common vendor makes these parts, then resells them to several sources (e.g. D&E, Univair, ...). Maybe I'm wrong. Be nice if each...

    It is the same part (compare pictures) from whomever the vendor is that makes it. Look at pictures of the certified part at Univair, Wag-Aero, whomever you choose to shop from. From the pictures,...

    We were in smooth air (blessed). The stick would "wobble" (for lack of a better word) slightly every so often. Move back and forth a few mm. So I suspected something was loose. I didn't look back...

    I had about 520 hours on my parts at the failure. When the part failed, I was over endless forest with absolutely no place to land--no meadow; no gravel bar; nada.

    As far as I know, original...
  25. Piper Clevis (tail wire brace bracket) part failure

    I recently had my Piper Clevis break. Though I have an experimental Super Cub, this is a certified part. Pictures below.

    I subsequently did some on-line research on the Piper Clevis part. ...
