Perhaps they're even looking for something they can eventually join you in, but haven't gotten there yet. The mere act of asking indicates some level of respect, so "Accentuate the Positive" and enjoy that - even if it's not what you'd hoped for.
    They usually ask for my opinion and then when I give them my experience and opinion they want to argue about it. Like wireweinie posted, they just want affirmation when they argue about my response. It works for me and I don't need any practice.

    This was just a joke with Dave cause he called me and I told him how I would do it. He chose a different way and there are way more pheasants flying around Yankton because of it.

    After climbing inside to do the fair lead close to the baggage I figured there would be a 0% chance I’d ever get back out.


    Jeeze it’s like pierce has done this once before. Ha ha.

    Dave just wanted to save some pheasants this year and didn't want to admit it to the morning coffee crowd.

    Yeah, but I don't have a hole in my cub
    Also, I'm not using the top aileron cable sets from Univair.....making my own. Those pre-made sets would be nice to install with no covering but I wouldn't advise
    it on a covered cub. Elevator cables look good so I'm only going to replace the short forward section around the pulley.

    Every fairlead and pully needs to come apart. Pulling a cable with one bare end would be a simple process. Never too old to learn the hard way.........and no pheasants in the freezer yet.
    and no pheasants in the freezer yet.

    You know how to fix that?...

    Fun fact the rudder cable attachment to the rudder won’t fit through the metal fairlead holes in the fuselage.

    And just think about what all he had already done to discover that. Don't feel alone, I learned that lesson the hard way as well.

    I was trying to pull the new cables with the old ones. It’s a one way road! Had to drop some parts off for paint, 4 hr drive or an hour flight.
