Thank you, Joe.  It is getting better already.  Three times around the pattern yesterday, and each landing was better than the last.

I'm 25 miles from Williston. I go to the restaurant there occasionally.  I can meet you there some time.
AS to the heavy left wing.   You need to check the rigging first.  Level the airplane.  Measure all the flying surfaces to determine anything out of rig. There is old article on the EAA website on how to measure and fix these problems.  I wouldn't even attempt to modify the airplane until after doing both of these.

We can always make arrangements to meet for lunch somewhere. MY 601 uses a 0200A Continental

Hi Joe,

I just cut out a hole I liked and made some smoked Lexan to fit and riveted in, sealing it with silicone. I made a plywood form to the curvature of the turtleneck where the windows fit and glued some aluminum foil over it. Set the plastic on top of it and put it in the oven at 250°. Sat there and watched it carefully until it took the shape. Pulled it out and let it cool. Both sides came out perfect the first time but I've done some similar windows and lens before and I was prepared to do it over until they did. Here's the pictures I have:

Hi Joe,

I'm still around. Lots of good info passes through. I'm installing another completely different Corvair in my 601XLB now. Lots of work. What Gurney flap question do you have?

Hi Joe,

Yup, I'm still here. Lots of good info comes floating through. I'm installing another completely different Corvair engine now. What can I help you with? Gurney flap?

I used a 4" PVC coupler cut in half, it has an I.D. of 4-1/2".

The coupler is bonded to the lower half of the cowling, with the top half slipping down over it. I hope it has enough opening, may have to enlarge it later.
