RE: Wendell Hostetler Pawnee

Forgot to mention, I just received my cowl from Fiberglass Specialties and it is very nice. They did a great job on it. It's going to have plenty of room for whatever I put in it. Probably a G62.

RE: Wendell Hostetler Pawnee

Wow, that was a great idea using the tape for sizing on the windshield. I will stick that tip in my pocket for future use.

RE: Wendell Hostetler Pawnee

Where did you get your lite ply for the fuselage sides. I called one supplier today and they wanted $115 dollars shipping for a full 4X8 sheet and about $60 dollars shipping for two 1' by 6' pieces.

RE: Wendell Hostetler Pawnee

Looking good Sukhoi Sammy. My tail is done, and almost all my fuselage formers are done. I guess I need to order the 11" X 66" lite ply for the fuselage so I can continue.

RE: Wendell Hostetler Pawnee

Sammy,

RE: Brillelli 46 Dies on Take Off - HELP

I see in your photograph that there is a black line going from the carb to the head. Mine does not have this. What is it for?

RE: Brillelli 46 Dies on Take Off - HELP

Well, I just got home from work and fired it up on the porch to see if it would still run after the repairs I made last night. It fired right up and runs great. I'll see what happens this weekend...

RE: Brillelli 46 Dies on Take Off - HELP

There is a nipple soldered on the plate and it's going into the fuselage as recommended.

Here's the latest. I just took the carb apart and the screen was a bit dirty. I wouldn't say clogged...

RE: Brillelli 46 Dies on Take Off - HELP

As I don't know exactly how much time is on the engine, I'm using non-synthetic oil for a couple of gallons to break it in. It's Briggs and Stratton Ashless 2-cycle oil mixed at 32:1 with 93 octane...

Good stuff guys. I'll check the items you've mentioned above. It will be later in the week or this weekend before I can get back to the flying field to see how these fixes helped.

RE: Brillelli 46 Dies on Take Off - HELP

That's what I thought too, but it doesn't seem to help. I started with about 1-1/2 turns out and kept going out from there. I went out about a 1/4 of a turn at a time until the high end needle was...
