Are you making the Lift Reserve Indicator probes?

Can you get standard Corvair jugs in nickisil? Do you have to change to VW jugs? I found Roy's fifth bearing about a week ago. After reading different info on about 3 different ones I like Roy's the best also. Do you know of any engine with his bearing and high time on the engine? Is there a place in the Houston area to get a Corvair engine?

I came close to getting a Legal Eagle. Looks like a fun plane.

What makes a Corvair light? I was expecting the engine to weight about 220lbs. Are you going to use a 5th bearing? If so who's?

Are you the same John Bolding that was suppying the kit for the Legal Eagle?

Hi John, I have only started to work on my forming blocks at this time. I think am going to upgrade to the 750. I would like to come see yoor progress and give a little help. Are you using a Corvair conversion? What engine are you planning on using?

Hi John,
I have been at a slow pace since I started a new job, I,m about to drill and rivit the main spars. I need to get to work.
I would like to use a Jabiru 2200 or the Rotax. Was going to try a VW conversion, but I think the weight factor would be undesirable. I rode and flew the factory 701, a month or so ago, and a light airplane with not so much power would fit my needs, or wants. Hows your build going? and what engine are you using?

My name is Joe Birch. I went through all my public school in Baytown. I was in the Lee Ganders class of 1957 and still associate with the alumni there. I am building a CH 750. I live near Corrigan, Texas now. I'd like to see your plane sometime.
