    Yes, this.

    Also, as Stewart suggested, when my -12 had O-320 with long mount and -18 tail feathers (no VGs) it would not flare well while solo without some power. Now, with short mount,...

    Both question marks would be answered 'yes'.

    It's interesting that the TCDS specified elevator travels are somewhat different between PA-12...

    And - what if that structure is one owned by the pilot on that pilot's private property? Sounds like we might have a mutual friend?

    Maybe just leave some excess wire inside the rudder such that the light could be cut off and re-terminated if need be?

    Pressure drop. I just don't want those sharp direction changes except where necessary.

    Yes, this is critical. Joining at the tank level could result in a broken syphon. Either (or both) front or rear port line(s) must be entirely below the fuel surface in the tanks BEFORE they are...

    The standard washer is what's on my -12. I'd bet that eccentric washer is some sort of home-made concoction?

    There are definitely flaws in my Stewarts finish. But I'm blaming myself - mostly due to putting it on too heavy in a single coat.

    Here's a mini-report on coating with Devcon.

    I wanted to pre-emptively coat a set of new 31's. I saw that Devcon offered two different compounds, Flexane 80 and Flexane 94. The 80 has a...

    I was thinking the same thing, except to perhaps slightly reduce internal windage in a much higher speed engine. Also, the fact that there is a vacuum now suggests that there isn't much blowby at...

    My -12 in a previous life with the long mount, flaps, -18 tail feathers, and O-320 wouldn't fully stall with a slow airspeed reduction. In fact it wouldn't flare happily for landing either without...

    Not pointless if wind is compensated for, as you mention. Taking the mean of multiple evenly spaced directions in nearly constant wind conditions would yield a decent result. My assumption is...

    That sounds very high. Maybe double check with GPS on four cardinal headings and take the average? That probably wouldn't be perfect due to variation in wind, but certainly a good approximation...

    Cuz it's a quick, easy, low-cost boost to flow rate that might be "just enough". That's all I can think of, anyway. In my personal opinion, those big snorkel holes are unsightly and an...

    Working on the download / installation of 3D Experience, it is a major PAIN. Clumsy, ackward and arcane. Reminds me of software installation processes from 30 years ago. NOT HAPPY so far.

    Insofar as I can figure, all that the cross vent provides is redundancy, in case of a clog in a vented cap. Piper and I think also Stinson did it.
