    Well like ive mentioned b4.  I havent done any covering work (just patchwork) with any aircraft fabric b4 i did the Oratex,  but i tell u that oratex is AWESOME STUFF. Least far as i can comment on.  Its so easy and fast a kid could do it. Hahahaaaa i have two more to cover for myself and i tell u thats what ill b useing on them.  And not to mention i cut off a total of 10.7lbs off dads PA12 with the Oratex 6000, biggest thing to remember is when ur installing the oratex is u have to remember ur installing the final surface so u have to take care to do the best job u can and take ur time, and think ahead cause what u leave is what everyone will C when its done.

  14. Buckchop added a post in a topic HOw to bend the gear   

    Well just wondering. Seams that would help, cause as one bends and not the other bends the distance becomes more from front to rear leg, not saying its the cure just may help give strengh, i c even stock gear with a brace sometimes, so if she bottomed out and bent gear does it look like the left gear bent, pulled the center thro the spring mayb pulled right longeron towards the left and bent the support tube also that goes from left to right? The one right under the fuseloge? Or is that tube made that way?

  16. Buckchop added a post in a topic HOw to bend the gear   

    Mayb a support welded between front and rear leg help put some strengh in it? And a step to boot if u dont cover them. Seams like long run for the legs without something.  And is the tube running from left to right on front of gear right under fuse little bent also?

    When i work for a snowmachine repair shop when younger i was shown to pull the rope 3times like ur starting it on each cyl to get ur compression reading.  Id say 4 would b ok also long as u check both the same way and dont over do the pulling.  Hope thats right its always worked for me.

    Well we know what ivo will say.  Rest of prop is ok,it just been tagged on the tip, Just wanted to start it up, and cant afford to buy a prop now, not interested in takin prop off other kitfox either.  And im guess u shouldnt start up the 582/c box without a prop? Or is that ok?

  24. Buckchop added a post in a topic Cut down an ivo prop   

    Yes the blades where to long and short pedistals on the skis, just wanted to start motor up for first time run and i thought u suppose to have a prop on when startin motor.  Probably wont run for more than 15min at close to idel to check leaks, exh temps, carb settins, the plane is just in "mockup" once all is good im going to totaly disassemblie and recover ect. If they all same lenght and weight same i cant c how out of balance could happen.

    Cut down an ivo prop
    hey im not sure if this has been discussed but i have a 3 blade ivo prop that has some damage on all three tips about 3/4" and wanted to cut the damaged ends off, the blades r 34 1/2" long from center of mounting bolt holes, not planning on flyin this prop as its my old 25-30 yr old discontinued GA, just want to use to mount for first startup, warmup and low rpm (under 3000rpm) of my 582 in the BlueFox.  I have looked at a few sites with good info, but would like the forms opinion on cuttin it correctly, u know me always learnin from those that already been there.  Thanks everyone for all ur help, Bucky
