    I'm planning all of the above you mentioned . I'm waiting on my A&P to get time for the condition inspection . The engine is a lycoming 0320 D 1-A  . When I took it to the grass strip I had to unload at the north end and taxi to the south end were the hanger is . I could tell then it was gonna be a handful for me anyway !

I'm still waiting on a few things to get current ,but couple guys at the strip telling me to go practice getting the tail up . Any thoughts on this and how to go about it thanks .

    Tail wheel dolly
    Hi I recently took my plane to a hanger and found that pushing it in and out is a lot harder by myself without someone back there guiding the tail . Since I'm Kaddy corner in the shared hanger . I gathered up some materials to build a simple tail wheel dolly and searched many pictures  but I can't decide if I want it to pivot before or aft of the tail wheel . I would think you would want to push down on the dolly to raise the tail rather than pick up like most pictures I see . Anybody have any input or  thoughts on this ? Thanks ,Toby

    Yea problem now is with the 4 blade prop that came on it , If I put bigger tires then it won't fit in the garage. Im looking now for a two blade prop  ,bigger tires , and prolby a hanger I can't see trailering it every other day to the strip . But I do like having it in the garage , I do a lot of sittin N drinking beer looking my plane in the garage LOL !!

    Magnum
    Just wanted to give an update on my magnum. Finally got it registered and that took six months .Fixed all the damage from the previous owners ground loop. His logs show around 15 hrs on plane after he built it and a special airworthy cert. That's expired I'm getting ready to take it to an A&P down the road at a local grass strip he said he would help me sort it out . So just wanted to post a few Picts and pretty soon get this bird back flying !  I think it needs some bigger tires lol  !!!

    Tail wheel spring wanted for magnum
    Hi im looking for a double leaf spring for my magnum mine has a slight twist . It has two 5/16 mounting holes and the tail wheel hole is 7/16 total spring length is 15 1/2 ". Width is 1-1/2 then tapers to 1-1/4 at tail wheel . Anybody know where I can get a new one or should I just go to a spring shop and try to make one ?   Thanks, Toby
