    FWIW, I told them typical Cub. They knew what to do.

    Whirl Wind will provide you with a 2-piece backer. You assemble that and bolt it to the prop base. The spinner has a bushing (for lack of better description) inside the spinner tip that fits snugly...

    Methylene chloride plastic welder. I'm pretty sure that's what I used on my Cessna strapless windshield that requires gluing a doubler to the top edge. Supposed to work equally well on acrylics and...

    EarthX airplane batteries come with an on-board trouble LED and an output lead for a remote trouble LED, which they also sell. My first ETX900 flashed a code. I landed, called EarthX, and they sent...

    Wolf Lake has a crosswind runway and plenty of space at the intersection to land diagonally. Handy. Grass infield on both sides of the runway get more use than the pavement. I like it.

    For 4000’ range you’ll need 100w LEDs. Big and heavy. My Solo Pods are 10w and have about 400’ range. More then adequate for daytime recognition. If you want to light the night? Look at light...

    When I did the -12 lights on the long step attach bolts the FAA was concerned about light reflection on the prop and required flat black paint on the prop to approve the installation. I think their...

    Has anyone spoken with Norma and Steve? I’d presume this is a step towards retirement? Well earned. I hope they‘re happy. They leave a great legacy with their customer family.

    Or.... insulate it to be consistent with the rest of the building. My hangar door is 25% of my total wall space. It doesn't make sense to build a lid to R50 and walls to R23 and cheap out on the door.

    Hangar Door Insulation

    Never heard of a 15 minute fire rating over foam, and I'm in the fire door business. I'd check with an insulation contractor on that one. My hydraulic door has sprayed foam and white paint on that....

    The simple fabrication they refer to is trimming the sleeve to the correct length. Easily done.
  22. MATCO MC4 master cylinder to ABI-30-52N brakes for 35" wheels

    I have the same setup. We made a few changes and mine seem to work fine. My slide tubes were replaced with beefier SS tubes to eliminate any flex, which they were known to do. Mike added some bleeder...

    Don't rig 'em wrong.

    I have video shot forward from under the tail of my 180 with the Fluidynes on. Rock solid except when taxiing skis up on bumpy ground.

    That's good advice. I wonder since Air Glides move forward to retract whether the STC requires a different cable fitting location? As bad as the Cessna gear fittings were they'd have been an instant...
