    Bladeflyer, by any chance does your tail number end in "K" (N####K) similar to what Aeroergosum describes? I think these were sometimes described as "cub specials", but, from what I understand, in...

    As DGAPilot says, detect when things stray and stop it from straying. I absolutely cannot claim to be an expert (though many people on this site ARE experts), but from the experience I have, flying...

    Gordon, I have not tried that. In terms of procedure, do you bleed them with the port open, and then pump in extra with the port closed?

    The main thing I would say is just do it. Clear your calendar as best you can and go for it.

    The other thing: following on JP's excellent advice, if it is possible to learn with a grass strip to...

    I also have the ATS pressure tank. Seems to work well for getting fluid in the lines. I've just got to figure out what else is going on, since it seems like the fluid is right to the top.

    To Denny's question, I haven't taken any picks yet of the lines. There is a slight low spot where the flexible hose goes into the belly of the fuselage. I bled them until fluid came out the top.

    The brakes were bled from the bottom up a few weeks ago and the diaphragms were replaced this summer. Original master cylinders, not high pressure. It is more the right side than the left, though the...
  8. Flexible brake line replacement? (spongy even after bleeding brakes)

    After switching to Cleveland wheels, we initially had great stopping power, but now, even after carefully bleeding the brakes, they are spongy. I do not see any leaks, so I think it might be the...

    Thank you for the replies. Oliver, that Kydex looks great. Did you use it on the rear seat? In any case, I like that set up a lot-- I'd like to get rid of the old spring seat and go to a platform...
  10. Making aluminum interior panels (necessary tools?)

    I am thinking about trying to make new aluminum interior panels, but am wondering if it is possible to make them well without expensive tools and a sheet metal brake? If the results will be lousy I...
  11. Cub-friendly fields in North-Central MA and Southern NH

    Going to be flying a Super Cub to Central Mass to its home for this winter in a couple weeks. It will head back to Maine next spring. For the flight down, and for general knowledge when flying...

    Is there a safe way to powder coat a sealed strut? Again, I wish I’d gone with the factory powder coat when I ordered them from Airframes.

    It is certified. I Really really wish I had gone with the Airframes Alaska powder coat. Bought them a few years ago and rust already showing through. Bonehead decision to try to save money and order...
  14. Wing strut paint material and process recommendations

    Looking for recommendations about best paint and best process for stripping and repainting wing struts. What seems to be the best primer and paint? Also, would having it painted by an autobody shop...

    Thanks to everyone. That is great info. Denny's post raises a question: the airplane is a 1950 super cub (one of the very first to leave the factory with flaps). It was originally equipted with an...
  16. Correct angle for full rudder deflection on a Super Cub?

    I am wondering if anyone has a correct angle for full rudder deflection in a Super Cub. I want to check that ours is set up correctly because, when slipping to the left, it felt like the nose did not...
  17. Please forgive the ignorance about the use of the...

    Please forgive the ignorance about the use of the long step, but would the rear passenger enter by stepping over the strut and into the back? Or does it extend far enough back that you could step...

    Thanks for the suggestions. For stability on grass, I kind of like the box idea-- maybe even 2'x2', but that would have to stay in the hangar. Would be useful when operating from home field.
  19. Rear passenger step stool/ladder recommendations

    Wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a rear passenger step stool/ladder. Want something stable so nobody falls into a wing strut. Thought about getting a paint platform, but I am not sure how...

    Good to see a K-Series Cub being rejuvenated! A few years ago we completed the rebuild of the K-Series Super Cub my grandfather bought in 1965. They are great airplanes. Looks like yours was the same...

    On the rear-mounted oil cooler, we have a hard time keeping the oil temp up in the winter. Even on hot summer days, the oil temp tops out at 170 degrees in cruise. From what I understand, you want...

    Although I can't tie this to anything Super Cub related, Žingvellir (Thingvellir) national park is really cool. There is a chasm there that was the site of the world's first parliament where the...

    I had a great experience with Airframes. One of the wing struts in a set got dented during shipping. They had me email them a picture of the dent and immediately sent a replacement strut at no cost,...
