    And Earle, chances are the long mount CG was not "normal". Most of the long mount 150 conversions can use some tail weight added.

    I have them, along with the stabilizer VG's and I saw an improvement at the low end near the stall.

    The TC says 0 to 50 degs. and doesn't say anything about in between so I don't see the issue with making what you want.

    I never used the spring on any of mine. Just fine without it, even on oversize tailfeathers.

    Type Certificate says 0 to 50 plus or minus 2 degs. I'm thinking they originally had two settings from factory? I remember seeing several that had a 10 and 50 deg. My experimental has 86" flaps and...

    I have two sets of Wag wing rotators that I have been using for over 20 yrs. They do need to be set up correctly (takes about 20 minutes) and they don't need any kind of floor attachments. I can turn...

    I can fine tune the whirlwind to perform just like the borer (only faster) or can adjust to either side of it. Best of both worlds; only thing better would be constant speed prop. I like it.

    I have hunted and shot black bears (No Grizzlys here) with both the .357 and 44 Mag in handguns. Both got the job done well, but the 44 would be my choice. I don't hunt them anymore, but do carry a...

    But I did not notice any overall difference in temps going from the borer to the whirlwind.

    I have been flying the Whirlwind all summer and noted in my early flights that the cyl and oil temps go down noticeably when the large spinner is on the prop versus no spinner. I suppose makes a...

    I have seen some felt-type materials that will hold water. Be careful about anything that can absorb and hold moisture. It's tough on tubing and it is usually where you can't see it.

    My first one was a 41' military (by Ford) that I bought in a junkyard in 61' for $40.00. Got me all through high school. Have owned several late 40's CJ2A's, a CJ3B, a couple early 70's wranglers and...

    Together, but many have been modified by now to make it easier. Often times made so that they can be brought together at the bottom. As long is it is secure, make it work for you.

    I hope it's not teflon tape. Still finding that stuff occasionally; use pipe dope instead, much safer. Probably something else in your case, but do your best to narrow it down if possible.

    I don't know how close the tolerances were when new, but a lot of them are all over the place 70 yrs. later. I usually build those items from scratch to get a proper fit.
