    I've heard of people having the valve stem rip out of 26" GY's at low pressure, due to the tire turning on the wheel.
    Need to put some monkey snot on the bead, or run more PSI.
    That's with C180's &...

    IMHO anybody who writes "unairworthy" in someone else's logbook is asking for a punch in the nose, or worse.

    You might talk to Tac Aero in Hood River Oregon.
    They have several supercubs & do a lot of t/w training,
    not sure about their solo / rental policy though.

    I just ordered a new thermostat for the propane foced air heat in my new-to-me 50x50 hangar.

    I believe the bushing you're referring to fits into the fork, not the t/w head.
    And it is on the exploded drawing for the 3200 series, but not the 3400 series.

    I always thought that kingpin bolt was a press fit, but I just watched Steve Pierce's YouTube about reassembling a 3200 & his kingpin just pops in & out freely.

    The few jump operations I've observed seemed to have jump plane pilots that were primarily skydivers,
    with a pilot add-on. Definitely seemed to have the skydiver mindset.
