    This sounds like they would be good candidates for a bedliner application from the start. Then as it wears down add another coat. The tires should then last forever.

    Where is the play? Between the screw and the yoke or does the screw move up and down in the fuselage? Two different reasons for the stab to move up and down when it shouldn't.

    The pumps in the Widgeon were just Facet pulse pumps. Not really high draw pumps. I believe the ammeters measured amps in fractions of an amp. The needle moved over a range of 2 or 3 inches which...

    I'd be inclined to believe the strip only stiffens that portion of the spar preventing buckling under load. It is the buckling which weakens the spar. Once buckled, it can collapse.

    Because with one mag you can feel the roughness sooner than with two mags. It is telling you a more precise mixture setting. Try one mag to the point of just getting rough and then turn on both mags....
