"Ok, I didn't do any work on my plane today but I did sign off Bobby Jackson to do his first Solo in his 701 with the Viking Engine. He's 65!"

Left Fuel Tank, Leak check.

That fuel sealer is messy but GREAT stuff!I don't think the sender will ever leak or ever be able to come off. I should better get a fuel totalizer any way. I never trust a gauge.

Jeff, it's finally coming together. I'm heading back around the 15th and am planning on getting it off the ground. The Jabiru has plenty of power and it should leap off the ground :-)

Jeff, I like Wing locker Version 1 better, it has a better fit.

I wouldn't mind having a free castering nose wheel. I do see the advantages of a steerable nosewheel, but I don't like the holes in the firewall.

Hi Jeff, Just noticed your address is shown in South Carolina but could't identify Fair Play. Since there doesn't seem to be many Zodiaks nearby, wondering where you are located. I have one wing opened and hope to get serious on deriviting the spar this week. Also plan to add the bottom access door,top access panel to instruments and full span elevator trim while I have things dismantled.. Hue G

Hi Jeff: Not a problem with the latch lock down 1 Inch. Take a piece of 1 in. sq tube and cut it about 5 in long with each end cut on a 45 degree angle. Drill screw holes in the ends about 1/2 in in from each side, so when it is mounted, the longest side is against the back of the rear baggage wall. Now mount your latch hook to the face of the 1 in tube where you need it. Most latches have 2 slotted holes for mounting. I used rivnuts for all screw areas. That way I could use #6 SS machine screws for mounting the tube and latch. Hope this helps. I also have some hand drawn instructions but would need your e-mail address to send. Regards and good building, Dave Nixon

I think Pramod is in Maryland. Best bet to find the exact address & procedure would be to go to www.flycorvair.com and do a search on either "Pramod" or "Nitron".

Q: Did you send your crank to Aerovair for nitriding?
A: No, I had it done locally, a long time ago. If I were to do it again, I'd send it to Pramod or somebody who does all the machining/tapping/nitriding for aircraft. None of those outfits were around when I did mine. Using local machine shops can be "hit or miss".

Q: What do you think of those $1500 cylinders that they have?
A: I don't know enough about them. I went with ordinary cast iron exchange cylinders from Clark's. Obviously the AL ones would be lighter, but IMHO the best way to make an aircraft lighter is to make the pilot lighter. :-)

Hi Jeff: Where are you flying out of? Where do you usually end up going in CONUS? Overseas? Germany perhaps? My wife and I would love to catch a ride to Germany this year. Send me your e-mail address to : adnasap@bellsouth.net and I will send my pixs of the pushrods. Thank you for serving. I ended up with 28 years. Out here. Dave Nixon

Thanks for your kind words, Jeff! Hopefully we will get chance to meet in person some day. The 601 XL is a great little plane. I have a couple of friends who are currently building them.

Cheers!
Stan
