Your engine is not reliably developing full power. I wouldn't rely on the "experts" here for
diagnosis, as none have inspected the aircraft and engine. Maybe the cause is simple, maybe
not. I heartily...

My Cub never had an ACA 309...

Since your tach is sticking, ignore it for now. You should be able to hear the rpm drop when
you pull the carb heat On. Since it's been sitting, check that the ducting is intact and set up

The buds of Spring in NY are getting ready to bloom.

Actually, I goofed...the J-3 looks like NC6925H, not 6825H. But 6925H is also still with us
today, located in Kennett Square, PA.

A nice film of the CAP. Various aircraft shown, looks to be mainly a NY based unit. Good shots
of an L-4 at 10:27 (shows the L-4 style upper door / window), 14:07 an L-4 with a Beech-Roby
prop. At 17:...

Glenn, I think NX306Y is returning to ORA. They just acquired a (replacement) Fleet 16B in TX
and I'm told a Ranger Great Lakes from Long Island.NC304Y is a 2T-1MS

Bob, they are bigger than they look, but still fit nicely with the look of the airplane. They
are the 25x11x4 Goodyear tundra tires.

Apparently not all Ponca City CUBs had short stripes! So long and short stripes came out of
Lock Haven and out of Ponca City. That's not a dent in the wing, it's a crease in the magazine.

This is the 1931 Great Lakes I used to fly. NC304Y. Menasco powered. I think it's the best
looking of all the engine options. A wonderful airplane.
