    I did the same. Used a grinder to open up the hole evenly to a larger size and installed a bronze bushing. Good as new, actually better since it's a bronze bushing and very smooth now.

    The flap/slat arrangement is interesting to be sure but could really only be done on a plane as heavy and complex as scrappy. Lots of moving parts and complex linkages. The other major issue I found...

    Not 100% necessarily no. Notice that they don't show it raising the power. It probably would raise power if other things were changed like valve lift/duration or RPM limit. It would be interesting to...

    Lot of hype. I'd like to see how well it makes use of all that engine. Something tells me it's a heavy pig and won't out-perform a normal Carbon Cub. In fact, I think Mike said the same thing at one...

    Ideally you could throw the airspeed indicator out and do it by feel but for me, I like to have at least a rough reference as far as airspeed to what I'm feeling in the plane.

    Denny's right, check everything before cutting. The upper longeron is definitely bent right at where the stabilizer support bracket is. Take all the stringers and vertical fin off and start by...

    My J3 seems to have the indicator bottom out with a full 4+ gallons still in the tank. I'm putting a new gas cap/float together and want to be able to...

    If you're gentle and use a brass pick you can extract those o-rings fairly quickly without doing damage. A brass dental pick is a pretty hard to find but invaluable for work on delicate items.

    On most cubs I've seen installed, the deflector goes in front of the hole "grommet" and parallel to the windshield line. I think it just keeps the hottest air from blowing straight on the glass and...

    They have always recommended the Optimate charger and sell that unit through the website. Good info on the GTR200. I plan on using that same battery/radio combo in non-electric equipped cubs.

    Legally as far as I know the "3rd seat" stc's are all primarily a 180lb baggage area stc. This seems like one of those "don't ask don't tell" grey areas in legality.
