  • Posted in thread: Jury Strut installation on 10-13-2017 at 02:14 PM
    I am having to replace my jury struts due to varying lengths that the previous owner either
    made or he just slapped on what he had during the so called restoration. My question is, does
    the connector ...

  • Posted in thread: Shock Strut bolt torque. on 10-09-2017 at 01:48 AM
    I put new shock struts on my L-4B and went to look for the torque specs for the pivot bolts and
    could not find any reference in the J-3 Service Manual. I did find the L-4 Erection Manual
    stating to to...

  • Posted in thread: Grass strip possibility. on 08-04-2017 at 06:36 PM
    The rancher that is selling the property likes to fly and he said no problem with him. Texas
    has no problem with people building grass strips as long as they are not a danger to neighbors
    and not near...

  • Posted in thread: Hangar Rash on My L-4 on 07-08-2017 at 03:53 AM
    What cover and paint process have you used? On my first flight after restoration I ground
    looped because the Maule tail wheel wasn't locking (that's my story) and I dragged a wing tip.
    Since I'd used ...

  • Posted in thread: Hangar Rash on My L-4 on 07-07-2017 at 09:43 PM
    After all these years of being careful pulling my L-4 out of the hangar, the hangar door rolled
    back just enough to scrape the right wing tip. :mad: The door took the first layer of the tape.
    Any sugg...

    Frustration has set in. The mechanic removed the cylinder 3 times and did everything he could
    to seal the thru bolts to no avail. We ran the engine on the ground at operating temp at 2100
    rpm with no ...

    Took the day off today to concentrate on the oil leak. I took the easy way to try and detect
    the leak. If that didn't work then I would try everything else that was suggested. I first
    cleaned the engi...

    Just had one like that - drove me nuts! Cleaned the engine, dusted it with talc, no luck (that
    usually does it). Finally pulled #1, replaced the big O ring and the gasket on the pushrod
    housing at the...
