I am Installing my mixture bracket per the Homebuilt Help Video, I need to attach part of the bracket to the threaded stud that attaches the carb spider. My issue is that I will not have enough threads left after the 1/8” bracket is installed with the lock washer and nut. I am considering using a slim nut so I have enough threads. Or I may cut the 1/8 aluminum bracket short and install a 1/16 steel extension to give me more threads.Is it ok to use a slim (short) nut? Does anyone have any…See More

I have the Homebuilt Help video of the O-200 installation and it shows Jon remote mounting his oil sender on a O-200. He uses two AN fittings and a hydraulic line hose. Has anyone done this and know what the part numbers are? I am having problems understanding what sizes to order. See More
steve I'd welcome the idea of coming up , but more than anything to go flying in are own planes, wouldn't that cool? Thanks for the comments it was a dog getting all that stuff in there. I have since put screws on both top arm and baggage rests just to be Shure. I'm hopping to have my plane done by September.
hi steve sorry i didn't get back sooner but for some reason this showed up on one of your old post, but i thought i told you but when i went to mexico i bought the fuselage kit i thought as slow as i've been i'll never finish. I have also decided to cut the elevator crank off of the torque tube I'll post some pictures as soon i can. thanks again for your inspirations and help ron
thanks steve I have not tried to fit the cabin frame but should be o.k. for some reason instead of 714 m.m. spread at the attach points I have 720 but I talked with calib before he left and he gave me the fix, but told me that was not unusual . i'm going to use a covair motor and am working with w.wynne and dan weserman on that see that yours is coming alone nicely, hope that some day some we can all go flying together soon. thanks again ron
hi Steve it looks like your really getting close to finishing. Have you found your engine yet/ as I recall your thinking of using an o 200? I now have everything but the fus done and have started that I'm going with the 3100cc covair from W W . My target to finish is late September this year. those #$@^% slats were a real codnokker for me the worst part of the build so far, a lot of work for no more that I'm going to use them.(going with v- gees
thanks steve but it's a really sloooooowwww go as you know I started plans build, but when I went to mexico for the open house I bought the fuselage the wing that you se is the secoud wing should have it done in a bought two weeks then the slats and flaperons I'm going to paint it before it leaves the shop. I know that if I had tried to build every part as slow as I have been I'd probably never finish
