    Jim,
    On the Matco catalog on-line, it appears that the seal is somehow attached to the bearing now. I wonder if a call to them might turn up some of the old style?

    On all the Avids I've had with the standard 6" wheel, the bearings looked like this. The seal was about 1/4" wide, and was a separate part.  JImChuk

    I think I have an extra one.  Shipping would be a killer though.  To each his own, but I think the sling seat is way more comfortable.  JImChuk

    I don't think you have to many airplanes/projects.  Is there such a thing as to many airplanes?  I don't think so.   Have fun with it Bob :-)   JImChuk

    Fibreglass seat base wanted for an Avid Flyer Heavy Hauler
    Hi from New Zealand.
    I have recently purchased a 1999 Avid Flyer Heavy Hauler. I am wanting to fit a fibreglass seat base as I had in my kitfox IV.
    Can anyone point me in the direction of where I can purchase one ?

    Well, that might be difficult, maybe we can agree on "somewhat crazy"... But it is a good craziness!

    am I crazy
    Convince me I'm not crazy. I just got the mod 4 inspected, I have a mod 2 to rebuild, I am building a Legal eagle XL, and
    for some reason I thought I needed another mod 1.

    Thanks guys.  It's been a long time getting to this point.  Still a long way to go though..  :-)   Still have to do the colors on the tailfeathers.  And then of course there is the panel and FWF.  Ya, it'll be a while yet.

    Hi Joey,
    I'm interested in the radiator. What are thinking for a price? Do you also have a radiator cap reservoir tank?

    You usually only see two types of Avids for sale, a speed wing and or a Subaru powered one.
