    Good question. I think our forum members gave me the answer last year. Getting old, but as I recall, you do the front bolt before you slide the tank in, and the rear afterward.

    I don't fly as many as Steve, but have time in a few modified Super Cubs, and maybe 30 hours in an O-200 legend.

    I liked the Legend, but was surprised that its cruise speed was only 5 mph more...

    If you are going to do that, avoid using "estimated 3000 hours total time." There will come a day, probably before they start doing carbon-14 dating on our data tags, when IAs will be taught to look...

    So, question: does a prop overhaul allow a statement of zero time? You do know you need total time.

    I believe you must have either. No requirement for both.

    Beacon is nice for ground ops. I hate strobes on taxiing aircraft, even in daytime.

    My personal trainer has the GTR-200, as does the Stearman. Turn it on, and talk.

    My personal Cub has a PM-501 and an SL-40. A single squelch knob, adjusted once on takeoff and once on landing. ...

    Paul - Aircraft Spruce sells LED bulbs for $35 each. They cycle between flash and steady.

    If you are experimental, I submit that you can build your own, including strobes, for under $200. The...

    Back in the old days nobody bothered. Now you have to have total time in service of any prop.

    Personally, I would ignore it a bit longer. If your IA is OCD, you might wind up buying a used prop...

    Still, how does he know what the back seat pilot is hearing? In an open door Cub, setting the squelch with one knob is tricky - with two knobs, four times as tricky. Life is too short to fuss with...

    Sure. I am in the back, student is in the front. I have explained the difference between squelch and volume, and the difference between pilot and copilot. In one ear and out the other.

    Or, simpler, just get a block of wood, and apply the rear brake with it wedged against something - the rear seat pan, maybe. Then work that front pedal until loose.

    A buddy came to my hangar with a 337 asking my advice.

    He said:

    2. The FAA has said that a 337 must be filed...
