    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.

    The BRS chute i had in my BlackFox was 21.4lbs. And was good for 1050lbs.  Useless dead weight if ur into low and slow flight like me. I pulled mine and for fun set it off in the front yard. Wasnt that much fun tho. Hahahaaaa

    In your own MK IV, do you have the 2 tanks installed?

    Jerome, you are probably right, you had 2 possible ways to get air in the tank and yes the ram air in the empty tank might have blocked the flow and air could either get in ther or throught the vent or both... So separate valves for each of the tanks is good idea (it also helps to use only one tank and preserve the other one from eventual ethanol contamination).
    Good luck and fixing the issue and thank you for your consideration. Repair is progressing and I should be flying by end of the month.

    I did read the whole thread about the similar case that happened to Gfry.
    I think that having the header vent closed or open should not make a big difference in a twin tanks system once one of the tanks is empty- because the empty tank gives a direct access to external air in the header tank? (or worse with a forward facing tank vent on the cap will feed air with a positive pressure in the line!)
    By the way, sorry for the trouble with your bird. Hope the repair is in good way!

    Real hi tech valves for me...  the snowmobile style ones like Avid supplied with their kits originally.  Look on page 18 of this LEAF catalog.  JImChuk
