    A JPI FS450 provides fuel endurance. It's not a function I look at often but it's good to have. The G3X has it, too. Percent HP is unimportant to me. Fuel use and engine temps are what I look at....

    I believe my '75 180 will cross feed in the off position but it's been lots of years since I paid any attention. My valve stays on Both unless maintenance requires Off. I never fly it on one side...

    That's my conundrum, too. I need to uninstall something from my Cub or accept being tracked in public. Our senators' offices were less than helpful about the issue. Well, the one senator whose junior...

    Aircraft Spruce and similar aircraft hardware suppliers sell clevis pins. So do a couple of local fastener stores local to me. As far as what I hooked the spring to? Can't recall. Whatever works.

    Does it look like this? Go to Lowe's or a hardware store and buy a similar length spring. It's a very basic mechanism. And in the interim? Close the door manually and lock it closed. Go fly.

    The ID sticker is on the top of the case. Look at your switch labels to determine top. It should be opposite the mounting tray.

    Assuming no big obstacles retracting flaps will ease the trim effort. Every 180/182 driver needs to do a takeoff with full flaps and landing trim so they know what to expect during a go-around.

    If I've ever seen them I wasn't paying attention. I know there's a cable release to retract skis in flight. How do you reset them to skis down? How do they work when landing snow with wheels down?...

    I parked at a public airport for 25 years. I know about fees but those aren't user fees. My house and property aren't free, nor are taxes, and I still have to pay annual airport user fee. And I also...

    I treat MEK like urethanes and use a fresh air ventilator. Minimize skin contact. For anything more than a small job I do the same with lacquer. I didn't used to and I knew better.

    Another idea is to connect an oil pressure gauge, remove a plug from each cylinder, and energize the starter to pre-oil with oil pressure.
