    Nice work! I like the paint scheme.
    Is this going to fly before we see snow?

    Thanks Randy.  I'll try to just find the seals by themselves.  I ordered 4 bearings that are the right size, but they didn't come with the seals.   JImChuk

    Leave the therapy to the wife, I'm heading to the garage.  I'm not crazy, but maybe I'm driving the wife crazy.   Good thing she doesn't even know what all is in the hangar.  Bad for her if I kick the bucket and leave her with the mess...  JImChuk

    Sometimes it's cheaper to get therapy 
    But where's the fun in that

    Jim, My Mark IV wheel bearings look like this as described above with the seal attached.  The part number on it (LM11900LA) is a Timken Bearing number but if you just search the number it will come up very easy.  Hope this helps.....Cheers Randy

    If you have both fuel tanks feeding a single header tank I do not believe you need a separate header vent. The header will vent to whatever tank is not supplying fuel. Is my thinking fatally flawed? This is how my Fat Avid is set up and works fine. Once all the air works its way out of the header it stays out, and both tanks feed it at the same time unless I shut one off because I am parked on an incline.

    Let me ask you this, if you're not flying, what is there to do in Soldotna, Alaska?  If there's not tons to do, then tons of projects is the thing to do, in my book.  Good luck on them all.

    I'd say you are lucky, not crazy.....unless of course you have nothing that you can get into and fly NOW while you have all these projects to work on.
    In that case you may be crazy! I felt pretty crazy while I had all projects with nothing to fly!

    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

    On mine Jim the seal is part of the bearing.

    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.
