  1. You might want to double check your gauge with another. Wouldn't hurt to see what the actual PSI is on a gauge with numbers either.
  2. There is a pinned post on the construction board of this forum about parts sources.
  3. I have a Graco Magnum which look similar to that one. They seem to make good equipment. Check out some of Idaho painters YouTube videos.
  4. Wow! What kind of lathe is that in the background?
  5. Well, if he needs one that big I'm still impressed whether it get up or not!!
  6. I like the belt pulley!
  7. The appeal will go to an end banc hearing before panel of five judges. There's a good chance it will be enough liberal judges on the panel to overturn it.
  8. Like everything else, old tractors need to be looked at in the context of the time when they were built. You can't judge them against modern equipment.
  9. Yeah, I hated the dual fill up when fuel was close to $4. Like you I never could understand the reason behind it.
  10. Our Debonair started out with an IO520 as well. When it was time to repower we moved up to the IO550. Unfortunately I didn't get to fly at much after the repower. It was a real screamer though. It was a mostly original 1966 that had to dual yoke retrofitted. The only major work we had done was having a bulkhead in the tail replaced. The prior owner was a doctor who like to get a little spirited with it. It did not have the external stiffners on the tail like the C33F though. I love those butter smooth controls!
  11. Same model as my debonair! It was a damn good plane, especially after we put the 550 in it.
  12. A split steel shaft collar would be way stronger than those cast ones. Way cheaper too.
  13. My Debonair was like that too. I never saw the appeal of the detail or the throw over yoke. I've been retrofitted with a dual yoke.
  14. And there is no personal accountability anymore so you are a hater for pointing it out!
  15. Talk to the landlord about treated dry fertilizer. he may be OK with that since it is not spray, as said. Remind him that that is what is used on lawns.
  16. And I though it was bad preflighting and taxiing a 152 on a hot day! Cannot imagine doing it in a bulky flight suit!
  17. In addition to the carrier landing issue, I think it helped in cooling at lower altitudes in the Pacific. Plexi can be like a greenhouse in the sun!
  18. They beat looking at the south end of a northbound mule all day, but that is about all I can say for them!!!!
  19. I gave up my FFL under Clinton!
  20. Surplus Center also has Acme rods and nuts.
