Ethanol Free Car Gas by [email protected]
I wanted to start a thread based on my recent experience with car gas. I'm not out in Ada, OK, and got worried when I saw that the local Wal- Mart gas station sells ethanol gas. This is no good for Anna, so I did some research with my coworkers and found 2 gas stations in Ada that sell ethanol free...

New starter in a 172 2005 by passenger 1957
I'm being told that I'll need a new starter and ring gear in my plane (used intermittantly by a school). The last one didn't seem to last very long... It was flooded by an instructor and cranked it "a bit longer than usual" to get it started. The mech. startes this as the reason they failed. Just...

Oshkosh 2008 Photos by John[_9_]
Maybe I am spoiled. I keep expecting that in this modern age there will be plenty of photos of an event like AirVenture even while it is ongoing. The official EAA site is top heavy with photos of mechanical bulls, past prime rock n' roll acts, and photos of the people that make AirVenture what it...

where to get oil by Dave
I'm currently living in SW Connecticut and my plane is in Danbury, where is the best place to get Aeroshell 100? Can I get it locally or should I mail order? I used to get it at Sams Club, but they don't carry it here. Where is the best place to get it mail order? Thanks as always Dave

High time airframe question by xyzzy
Assuming proper maintanence and a good airframe log/book inspection, are there any concerns about high time airframes, like insurability, etc? My partners and I are looking at a warrior with over 11,000 AFTT.

OSH Sleeping by Douglas Paterson[_2_]
OSH First-Timer (hopefully!) here. Assuming I can get the plane out of annual in time, I plan to make the trip! I'm curious about lodging. I snagged a room at the Super 8 on the field. Outrageous prices, of course, and I also wonder if I'm missing an essential part of the experience by not...

Differences in O-540 models by Charles Talleyrand
I read that the O-540-A1A5 weighs 396 pounds, but that a IO-540-A1A5 weighs 437 pounds. Can the difference between a carb and fuel injection really be 39 pounds? Also, as I wrote an IO-540-A1A5 weighs 437 pounds. But an IO-540-c4b5 weighs 402 pounds, but produces 50 horsepower less. What did...

Hangar rent by Kobra
I don't know if this has been covered before, but how much is everyone paying for their hangars and what is provided? Mine is a T-hanger with a dirt floor, free electric and manual doors that are a bear to open and close. The hangar is damp of course, but not too bad. When we first secured it...

Oshkosh attendance by [email protected]
For me, OSH is out of the question this year. With so many costs up, flat income, and the cost of fuel so high, it is just not in the cards. I am wondering if there are others in the same boat. EAA carefully guards attendance figures but for those that are there, what does it look like? Lots of...

Auto Pilots by [email protected]
So I own a 1961 Cessna 172. She's a great little airplane, light on fuel burn, and not too bad on the airspeed, although she could do better. I want an autopilot to start taking her on long trips. I'm trying to do it as cheaply as possible but still legal obviously. Anyone know of autopilots that...

radial engine torque by [email protected]
Hi, I have noticed by watching the videos at http://www.fulldeflection.com , that the radial engines of the Sukhoi etc, allow more vertical penetration, but all the Red Bull Air Race planes have boxer engines. I would have thought that the radials would have more engine torque, thus pulling the...
