    Iíve owned 4 PA-12ís. None with the original O235. The O290-D2 is a great engine but hard to find top end parts for. I would try and find an airplane with an O320, PA-18 flaps, gear, trim and tail...

    That made me laugh! He would fit in perfectly with the new ABX.

    3 years, 6 months and 15 days until my retirement. But who’s counting.

    When I flew in Alaska we had 2 185’s and a 180. Scared myself a couple of times trying to takeoff in the 180 with a load!

    Personally I like the year they got rid of the slant tanks and put in the outer wing air inlets. What year was that 55? As far as sports car feel I am a full hand flyer.

    You’re talking about the bearing buddies right? Interesting thought! I haven’t worked on floats much. Just a little bit on whips on a 180 and Caravan. I don’t remember the exact layout. Might be able...

    8.50ís on a Cessna 140

    Does anyone know of a STC to put 8.50’s on a 140? I am asking for a friend. I suggested the ABW 26” but they’re too expensive.

    Give me a call. I have a takeoff remote oil filter you can have. I think it’s an Airwolf. It won’t work very well with a float plane mount though. Not sure what you have.

    Unless it’s changed in Alaska the airplane just has to give way to cars. Of course the cars have to give way to airplanes on a runway. That seems fair.

    I don’t recall it being that much. I thought around $250 for the last one I sent in. I just looked the minimum flat rate repair is $208.
