    It was not the cable which caused the trouble. It was the flap handle quadrant on either side of the cable which cut two grooves nearly through the aluminum tubing. This happened when the flaps went...

    Yes, unless there is an STC to increase the gross. See page 1 & 2: https://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgMakeModel.nsf/0/ab203ab0e89895af862572090071f7cd/$FILE/1A2.pdf

    Fixed leading edge slats have a fixed rather high drag component.
    A well designed hinged slat will blend into the leading edge at cruise speeds without a drag penalty.

    That would be expected when operating at the elevations of Utah. At 7,500 feet you would have had only a maximum of 75 hp available, more likely less. A loaded PA-12 is no ball of fire at sea level.

    That is correct, then that number is it unless you do further testing to be able to declare a different number. I chose 1999# on my Cub because the annual State registration fee goes up with a gross...

    I would keep the direct reading oil pressure gauge. That is the one most important instrument in the airplane. An electrical failure would render both of your other two options out of service.

    sj,
    I seem to recall there should be a large thick washer between the engine mount and the firewall at the lower bolts. I'd have to check the manual.

    Even at that, moving towards an open hangar is a no no. Those rotors move a lot of air and debris when just a little bit off the ground.
