  1. I’ve got a copy of it on my laptop if anyone is looking.
  2. It’s laser etched on the placard. Just can’t see it due to the flash.
  3. And here I thought I was being all techie, and put on a stainless steel cover plate, with a cylinder guide. Then had an offset handle welded on to a slotted coupling (so the handle faced the side the fuel was on, and the slot could only go on the selector the one way).
  4. Tried that. Still didn’t work. Used the skateboard top cover grip tape. I was thinking more of a series U channels, welded on, that would be able to “dig in” to the tire with each row
  5. I have one. Works great when there’s no snow on the ground. When it’s winter (7 months of the year up here), it slips and doesn’t work. Contemplated a possible change in design for the drum to aid in this situation. Just haven’t got there as of yet.
  6. You would be correct.... Brain freeze there. I meant GS.
  7. Lean to 50 ROP. I have an AME that is anti- LOP. That, and the CHT's typically stay below 380 that way. When I say "zero wind", I mean I'll fly one direction, then 180 back and use the average, which works out to usually 138 kts at 75% power. Settings are usually: 7500' - 22 MP 25 RPM (Ram closed) 72% from POH 144Kts expected , 24 / 24 (Ram Open) - 74% from POH 146kt expected 10,000' - 19MP 26 RPM (Ram Closed) 65% 141 expected , 21 MP 25 (Ram Open) 68% 146 expected TAS is based off of GPS.
  8. If it’s like the flap indicator, the “indicator” end just had a piece of plastic fastened onto the end. The flap “mechanical” end, was fed through a hole in a bolt, and tightened to the flaps, next to the worm gear. Mine snapped there. After removing the plastic indicator, we were able to pull it out, and feed a new wire through the sleeve. Took probably 45 mins. 30 tonremove the screws, 5 to feed the wire and 10 to put back together.
  9. TAS, with zero wind. WOT and at 75% power, based on POH numbers. So, depending on altitude will determine MP and respective RPM. Ram open or closed doesn’t matter really. 75% power is 75% power.
  10. If it’s anything like the flap indicator wire, it’s .058” piano wire. You can get it from almost anywhere.
  11. Paul, it's a 30 year old POS UBG-16. It shows EGT and CHT, and that's about it. Which is why I have an EDM-900 going in eventually.
  12. You and me both.... it is what it is.
  13. Airspeed is +/- 138 kts. There's a UBG-16 in the plane now, and I"m running 50 ROP.
  14. I'm sure I am about to beat a dead horse. But, what does everyone get as an actual Fuel Flow rate? I haven't installed my EDM-900 as of yet, but have been meticulous in keeping fuel records, and flight hours on the aircraft. Current amounts are: Using Flight (Tach) Time: 8.65 GPH Using Airframe (in Flight) time only: 9.77 GPH Typical flights are under 10,000 ft, usually between 6500-8500 ASL. depending on the MP at altitude, I'll run POH numbers in the 70-75% range which typically shows a Fuel flow of approx 10.5 GPH. Am I really using a Gallon (or two) less per hour than expected?
  15. Reversed searched the serial # along with model.
