    Let's see, he thinks he has a grounding problem and has a set of jumper cables.... shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Oh well, I'm sure the mixture and carb heat cables will do just fine.

    All the little Lyc's/Cont's were designed to run on 80/87 so I don't see 90 Mogas being any kind of an issue (assuming no ethanol) with mags set to spec. They actually lose power and run slightly...

    A heavy airframe compensated for with a heavier engine equals a heavy airplane. It's power-on performance will obviously equal a stock built machine, but it's low speed, power off performance will...

    I don't know how I missed this Gordon. No snide remarks, but only because of my tardiness. I'm familiar with the old "W" series Chevy engine. They had a goofy combustion chamber design. Basically an...

    Very likely. I didn't want to be the party pooper, but you may learn more than you wanted to know about your airframe.

    I grew up flying stick & rudder, pitch & power. Still do. I feel sorry for the new crop of GA pilots who are driving airplanes because they never learned how to fly them.

    That was exactly my first impression. I liked the modest improvement in elevator authority, but the slightly increased sensitivity of the rudder put me off a bit, at first. After a few trial flights...

    That has to be a significant factor. With regard to the first part of your post, keeping the lower cowl sealed against external air entry must help. I went on a campaign a couple years ago to seal...

    With a CS prop at a given throttle opening, MP actually does increase somewhat as you pull the prop back, unless you are at or near full throttle. With a fixed prop, I'd want more load than an 82-41...
