    Drill two holes. Suck through one. If you get corrosion products look further. Close holes.

    Didn't Piper issue the SB 528D that spec'd the use of a Maule fabric tester on lift struts?

    That's not good. Thankfully they landed ok. Well, if they're compromised better to fix it than loose the occupants.

    I wonder why no LE slats or wing section extended over the fuselage? It has the potential as a blown lifting surface providing the tail isn't disturbed. Just envious of that beautiful airplane.

    Eyeballed the O-200 9.5 compression is about 110 HP at 2750; the stock O-200 7:1 is about 100. I'll "assume" 8.5:1 could be a little over half the difference or about 105-7 at 2750. Of course if...

    This is interesting (http://www.continental.aero/engines/200.aspx). Raising the compression from 7:1 to 8.5:1 in the O-200-D doesn't change the rated power?

    It helps to fly the route in good WX at 500' just in case. I suggest that and some wonder why. Ideally the first time isn't the last.

    One way to test would be to remove the tubing at the cylinder and plug the cylinder hole. Go fly and see if it vibrates from what Pete suggests. If not then there may be an engine issue.

    I always wondered why they didn't put an external tube gauge on the main like the wing tanks have. At least for the last 1/4 tank.
