    Yeah - There were no locking devices on the screws. Happened to a local Super Cub too - Marvel
    Schebler, looks a lot like the MS on Chiefie. I will look into it - there should be at least
    star washers...

    "But getting them to take that first step is like pulling teeth"In my experience - for many
    pilots, that is probably a good thing.No doubt ,Every mans got to know his limits , but it

    Flyrite, we need to get together some day. Hey Jim, nothing would make me happier. I've joined
    up here as well as the other cub site in hopes of generating some interest in my area (

    Single spanwise vortex off the leading edge very early in the takeoff roll (as you start to
    roll and drop the tailwheel rapidly to the ground). The vortex establishes full curculation as
    it rolls aftw...

    "if you let it fly at minimum unstick airspeed, your takeoff roll will be the same as the next
    guy's".That's not quite true. If you lock the brakes and blow the tail way high, and then bring
    the tail ...
