Thank you Steve. I spoke with Matt at KEGT and Air Plains and neither had anything available. However I think I have something lined up at either Cook Field, K50, or Strother, KWLD. I appreciate your...

I'm hoping to fly the 7A up to Wellington this weekend for my Grandson's 1st birthday. KEGT doesn't seem to have any available covered parking or hangar space. Any RV's know of any space close to...

I've probably got my terms messed up. I am referring to the governor end. The 74070 will not fit. I believe the female thread ID for a 9/16-18 should be .51, my female thread ID is .447 which would...

Thanks for the reply. I purchased the governor adapter second hand, my engine came with the cover plate. I believe it's off a 320, which I thought was ok since everything I could find showed the...

Governor adapter jam nut elbow

I can't seem to get the threads on the jam nut elbow (lycoming 74070) started in the governor adapter oil hole. It sounds crazy but he hole seems to be smaller than the fitting. Is it okay to use a...

Hey Ryan,
I'm having the same exact issue and wondered how you solved it. If I make the rollbar and 631a flush the 725 is in too far and not flush with the skin. If I position it for the side skin...

Longeron bend is not flush with the skin

I drilled my longerons yesterday and discovered my bend under the F-704 apparently was a little off. I ended up with top of the longeron being high by about 1/16th. Everything looked fine before I...

Dumb aileron question

I've just realized I'm missing/misplaced one A-409 counterbalance (aka WATER PIPE 1/2X52). Is this really just a 1/2" galvanized water pipe I could pick up at Home Depot or is this some special...
