    Hey Ed, where can I see that page of the Kitfox manual? I'm getting ready to glue the new tanks in now, and would like to have a reference to show.

    B box
    Might be a dumb question. What goes in the threaded holes on the sides of the B box? All the photos I' ve seen seem to show them open.

  7. Shipl14 added a post in a topic Reverse prop torque - 582 engine   

    I understand the theory of P factor, torque, gyroscopic precession, spiral propwash. All 4 cause a plane to pull to the left on takeoff. (Actually, precession makes a plane pull one way when the tail lifts and the other when the plane rotates). In a geared engine though, P factor and spiral propwash will be opposite the normal direction. But torque and gyroscopic precession will be offset by the prop turning opposite the crankshaft. I was just wondering what the net effect is. Guess I'll find out in a few months, with a little luck. Hope to be ready to cover by summer.

    Reverse prop torque - 582 engine
    I've been curious how much the torque of the reverse-turning prop offsets engine torque. Do you have to use left pedal on takeoff? Might be hard to get used to.

    Thanks for the answers. What kind of lights are other guys using on their Avid/Kitfoxes. Most of what i see at Spruce is big bucks and too large anyway.

    Having a hard time finding the FAR requirements for lighting on planes of this type. Nav lights, strobe, etc. Anybody know where to look?

    Nose ribs
    Just noticed that the nose ribs on my wings are about 1/8" taller than the other ribs. Do they have to be sanded down? Lot of sanding.
