    A firewall mounted Odyssey was installed on my 180 by a previous owner close to 20 years ago.
    They did some other stuff at the same time, but when I crunch the numbers from their W&B revision,

    Same assembly number RH & LH, but different sub-part numbers.
    But the different p/n LH & RH parts just might be identical--
    who knows what evil lurks in the heart of Cessna?

    Seems kinda like a Sharper Image for survivalists.

    FWIW my friend bit the bullet & bought a new tailspring, saddle, etc.
    So everything is pretty much all new back there.
    Spendy, but it should be good for another 40 or 50 years.

    The two bolts that go through the tailwheel & tailspring are AN5's-- aka 5/16".
    When you say "oversized"", I assume you mean an "itty-bitty" bigger than 5/16", and not 3/8" ?

    I always enjoy looking at skywagons, maybe you can start a thread & post some pics of your progress.

    Those "point in space" datums are a PITA,
    I think the Luscombe does that also.
    Dunno if they mix-n-match point-in-space and WLE like Piper does though.

    My suggestion is to throw out ForeFlight (at least for now) and read the W&B stuff on the J3C TCDS.
    It should answer your questions re fwd & aft CG limits, etc.

    I wouldn't buy a car, even new, without a test drive. Why would it be different for an airplane?
    In an airplane though, I'd expect a test ride -- as pax, not as PIC.

    I think the consensus is to go with the old heavy Energizer starter and the old / classic style starter adapter.
    Esp if you are running a lightweight (aka MT) prop.
