Yes the viking spring is available, I got the new nose strut for puck system by mistake and couldn’t use the steel bungee that I had on the shelf.

Joe , it’s Jeff Herman here, you asked about the wheel pants on my 601. The photo is from the previous owner. I had him remove them for me before I bought it last October because I like grass strip fields. I have not installed them yet for myself , so I cannot answer your question. I keep them on a shelf and can take measurements if you need me to

I'm also flying a corvair.  It has had some teething issues, but I think everything is running smooth now.  Looking forward to some longer flights where I can get more settled.

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:
