    Thanks so much - I will be waiting to hear if you learned more.  The Heinrich could be father (or son/brother) of Michael who is also on the paper?  We also don't know the connection to the Noam? Capput and Gertrude Schmitz on there.    EDMO

    Hey EDMO, for starters this is a not a birth certificate but instead it is a ....death certificate from 1839!!! I am having a little trouble reading some of the handwriting...I will have another good look tomorrow morning ... brain works better then it seems.

    Thanks,  I enlarged and darkened this and sent it to you in a PM - I can make out a few words, like towns, but not enough to understand it.  EdMO

    My story and results are very similar to PitFox, except Jabiru and hearing was very difficult and painful, even with earplugs underneath. Compared Bose and Zulu 3, no regrets in getting a pair of Zulu 3s. Cheaper than hearing aids and way more joy, less pain.

    didn't quite have the power to spin the prop Daryl at warp said the recommended prop for those setups is a 2 blade 70 inch. I not sure if he got to try it again or not.

    CAN ANYONE TRANSLATE A GERMAN DOCUMENT?
    My wife just got a German / Prussian document which we thought was the 1824 birth certificate of her Great-Great Grandfather MICHAEL KAPPERT who came to America about 1847.  We now think that this Heinrich may have been his brother and the Michael and Machtildis Capput may be their parents.  Is there anyone who can translate and type it out for us in English?  Maybe it is something else?  I can send it to you on a PM.  Confusing, if it is, because paper is dated 28 Dec 1839.  Maybe you could just tell us what it is, if not something to do with birth or parents?  We think it connects to my wife's family.  Thanks,  EDMO

    I would think that if he is making 80 HP, and full throttle prop rpm is not over 2500,  he should be able to turn 3 blades.  Of course they should be facing the right way......If he is getting a different prop, does that mean that he was only able to make 60 MPH with his set up the way it was?  JImChuk

    That will be great Leni;  offering both spring and bungee is a great idea especially if it only require changing out the tension legs to go from one to the other so your build parts inventory stays mostly the same. (KISS)

    Good spot Jim, you are absolutely right.  That will make a big difference in the thrust if he actually ran it that way.
    Hey, just think how cool it will sound taxiing around, and all the chicks it will attract!

    Emory,
    Yep, it was for clearance...it is an angle valve engine and the valve cover tabs at the top made contact with the cowl.  I think a standard O-360 would fit...tightly.

    don't forget the bleed screw on the top or you will hate yourself about 15 minutes into the break In run...  I also used a turkey baster with a length of hose on it that I shoved down into the RV tank inside the hose that comes off the top side of the engine (bottom of case if inverted) and sucked the oil through to assure no bubbles were hiding in the cavity.. Then the tail in the air spinner on the ground for about 10 minutes to really make sure all the air had migrated out of the cavity.   Yes I was a bit anal about bleeding it on round 2.

    Good work.  Contractors most often put very little effort into that sort of thing but I think it will pay.  Though we've given up for now, a few months back we had decided to move 60 miles down the road into more open country and build.  In the end we never could find a piece of ground that wasn't covered with outlandish CCRs so we gave it up.  In looking for a builder we finally found one after cruising neighborhoods and peeking in windows.  They were retiring and taking no new work.  Others I could tell from a lifetime in electrical construction didn't measure up plumb you know?  The photos in our gallery would prompt negotiations thats for sure.

    That really is a fine looking airplane.  What is that raised lump on the port cowl?

    Nice work TJay - Was a little disappointed that there is not one photo of a hanger.  Guess not many calls or much profit in assembling them?  ;<)   My old house probably sold for about $10K or $12K in 1964, and I think I have about $160K in it including rebuilding and the shop and small shed (about $35K in concrete work) since I bought it in 2005.  Insurance says $220K to replace all of it - guess that is way below what is being built today, but at least I don't have those big payments every month, (or the money to pay them!). Ha!  Ready mix concrete was $12 a yard when I poured it in 1964, and the last I poured was $200 a yard with colored being $400 a yard - Times and prices have really changed.  My 1964 Chevy convertible was $2700 new, not much more than my 1954 Convertible cost.  BTW:  My starting pay in the Army was 11 cents an hour plus room an board in 1959, or about $78 a month before Social Security and taxes were taken out of it.   Just some ancient history for those who didn't live then.
