    Like I said I have the vacuum kit and now I went ahead and ordered the separator. I figure to start with the complete system and work backwards from there, although I’ll probably collect the...

    That's an interesting topic. Yes, he incorporated STCs but they were included in his PMA approval. Technically he didn't have to provide copies of the STCs according to FSDO. Definitely an odd...

    FWIW it's Gerry with a G.

    Good luck. Getting info out of him when he was in business was hard enough!

    Thanks. Are you using the safety line with the pop-off valve? I have a kit in hand. Was surprised that the install instructions are all about connecting to a separator.

    Anti Splat Aero Question

    Looking for pireps. Anyone using the Anti Splat crankcase vacuum kit? If so, are you using it with or without the oil separator? Hoping for actual experience feedback. The vacuum kit is a very...

    FWIW Avemco insures projects. You can adjust the value as the project grows and you gather parts and components. Very reasonable.

    I'm sure it pulls just like my IO-400 did and like my Thunderbolt 390 will. ;) I'm familiar with the motor and the weight. I'll be interested to learn more about how they manage the CG.

    How's that plane balancing out for CG? Are they adding tail ballast? That's a lot of motor sitting on the nose of what started out as a 100hp Cub.

    Insurers are very sensitive to over insuring and will question the stated value if it seems high. For obvious reasons!

    The idea that jury struts only serve to keep primary struts straight doesn’t account for any wing flex or twist in flight. I’ve been told by a couple of Cub guys way smarter than me that Cub wings do...

    Same at my TX shop. Big fans help until you figure out you're standing in a convection oven. We put in overhead doors at both ends. Changing the air rather than moving the air seems to help.

    That’s plausible. My baggage door collects water in the rain. If I open it it drains in a steady stream. If I don’t open it first and fly it? No water in the door when I land.
