    I read the 8900.1 and do not see what the fuss is all about. The 8 hour course is still listed
    as an acceptable way to renew per the FAR's. The order just clarifies that an applicant
    must also me...

    The requirements have not changed, except for the two year renewal. You have never been able to
    mix annuals and 337's. In the past I have done it by annuals, now I just attend a seminar.
    I got my...

  • Posted in thread: Value of O-200 core?? on 02-12-2012 at 01:48 AM
    I may be selling an O-200 rebuilder core. I looked an Barnstormers for help, but it only listed
    a couple. I guess they are going for 3-4K as a core, is that off base? Mine is 1800 SMOH, has
    more TT, b...

    I used to work at a shop where we had an avionics dept. as well. We had a customer with a C-182
    who was also a ham operator. We installed an antenna from the tail to the wingtip as well as a
    radio all...

  • Posted in thread: Parking brake ... ? on 08-01-2011 at 01:54 PM
    My J-5 has a parking brake that was original equipment. I think it is a great feature to aid in
    hand propping because I have to walk around my struts and door to reach the cabin. With that
    being said ...

    I am too cheap to boonie bash with the -5. I can't afford to pay for the airplane again.
    I'll just stick to grass runways. GY Airwheels just strike at my vintage a/c heartstrings.
    I can thin...

    FWIW, I just finished installing an Aerospace Welding Inc. muffler. After some initial fit
    issues that I was not happy with (not every PMA'd part is like another), I sent them my
    left and right s...

    I was looking for parts for another project and ran across a set of Goodyear Airwheels for a
    Cub. They are sized 25 - 11 x 4 and mounted on wheels. The Cub wheels have what looks like an
    adapter ring ...
