I went ahead and hard mounted the engine using some metal straps that came with it. I guess it'll be fine that way. It did start right up after sitting all those years. I had left the throttle...

RE: Lock Washer

Just seems like it shouldn't have to be that tight. I may have to remove the lock washer because I just ordered an aluminum spinner and I am not sure how that goes on yet. When I get it I may...

RE: Lock Washer

I am sure I probably didn't have it tight enough. It came loose when starting. I had that problem before and ended up having to really tighten it. More than I really felt comfortable with. Seems...

RE: After run oil

Well it gets very humid here and I don't get to fly very often. Maybe one day a week and then not every week. So I would assume from what I am reading I should be using after run oil. The engine...
