    Do you have fuel flow numbers by chance? What was done to the carburetor and by whom? Does it ever appear to make full power at any mixture setting or always seems off? Have you pulled a plug and...

    You can thank me for the cheaper part. I just purchased a Cessna kit from Yingling. $$$$$$$$. Hundred per $. Damn high for what you get.

    BTW. The new part is not PMA’d yet. Legal?

    Sorry for the pic, thought relevant but guess was wrong. The 12 bungee truss is not really that big or that heavy. Certainly not enough to significantly add to the structure required to hold...

    That's the point. When making 220 horse power in an IO360 you will have to burn fuel. It takes 200-250 degrees ROP to keep the CHT's down and the engine protected from detonation. EGT is the quickest...

    EGT control

    I started a PA12 build thread and we on to EGT readings. My 12 had a single CHT/EGT gauge that had little use except to help keep the CHT on one cylinder in check when leaning in cruise.

    WTB Pa12 ribs

    I could use a couple of clean original Pa12 ribs. Would prefer full length, but aileron bay ribs would work. Preferably within 300 miles of San Antonio Texas, so can pick up without shipping.
