    NR's items are beyond superb. Each is a work of art.

    These are nylon and will last virtually forever. Mine have been in place for over 20 years now.
    Univair has the larger ones, too. Don't know why the smaller ones are so expensive, while the
    larger one...

    I've learned a lot here. It's made owing a Cub for the last 21 years nearly painless. You may
    get to sort through some differing advice, but that one nugget is generally in there somewhere.

    Another fitting was installed on that exhaust pipe shroud at one time. Can't imagine what it

    refueling methods are used. Refueling is not an inherently dangerous operation, as long as the
    most basic pr...

    And what set up do u use ? saw on a site that the mfger recommended what 20 25 lbs of tension
    on tension spring set up ? A lot of spring tension will cause rapid wear of the lower rudder
    hinge. The Sc...

    ...How fast does a J3 need to go? Mine trues out at 80 MPH, year in and year out. Man was not
    meant to fly faster. :p

    I am so up in the air on which one to buy - terrible . I think you've got it narrowed down to
    the Lang or API. If cost matters, I'd go with the API. If not, the Lang.

    Fueling a Cub (or anything else) using gas cans isn't inherently dangerous. Only the standard
    precautions need to be observed: no smoking, and guard against spills and vapor concentrations
