    The axles don't taper, they are straight. I will get a pic when I get back from fishing. It's not any kind of clearance issue, just not enough axle length.

    Federal 1500 and Taylorcraft

    Is this a good combination? The Crate has the 1500 pound gross weight increase and a C-85. I have some Landis 2000s here but the pedestal is too wide.

    Fix it now. Any exhaust exiting from the wrong place can lead to CO poisoning. Take this time to do a thourough inspection of your firewall and seal any holes. CO is serious business.

    I vividly remember kids waving at me from the back seat of a minivan as I was sneaking though just north of Cantwell. Get-home-itis, hopefully I've gotten the antibodies by now.
