    Hmmm. I'm just trying to wrap my feeble mind around this, but by lowering (i.e. increasing) the negative pressure in the cabin, aren't you just asking for problems with CO2 ? And come cold weather,...

    A friend with an 85 hp J-3 and I were discussing oil temps during fall/winter flying. He mentioned he consistently gets 110 degrees above ambient air temperature. That's OK during warm weather, but...

    Do a search here for draining fuel and static electricity. There's a lot of good info. Above all, do it outside the hanger. I've always drained from the gascolator drain fitting.

    A boat seat cushion/PFD comes to my mind, if the boss is generous and the poor sucker in the back is not too tall. Do a search for "Safari Seat". Ever hear of a Trapper Nelson pack frame?

    Bill,
    Do a search here on Steve's gascolator. There are a number of discussions. It's a nice piece of equipment and good people to deal with. No more leaking gaskets and safety wire.
