    Ed I suggest you use Rulon bushings, much better and slippery as hell.  I use them in my Q2 for elevator and aileron bushings and should be easy enough to split. Also they will last.

    +1 on the rivets, glueing to the aluminum is not a good option.  Might I suggest hard rivets but pop rivets will work also.

    Here are a few pics from the Glendo fly-in this weekend. We had about 20 planes and one turbine whirlybird, about 200 people.
    Great times for most everyone.  Wyoming winds joined into to make the event more interesting but we did get all of the events completed including the stuffed animal drop which is a big hit for the little children including two of my great grandchildren.

    Glendo WY fly-in
    We are having the annual Glendo Fly-in this weekend at 76V.  There is a bunch of us the arrive on Saturday morning and camp with the main event on Sunday. The town of Glendo provides some fuel money ($25 this year I think) for anyone that flies in and there are cash prizes for the balloon pop and the flour drop happening on Sunday starting around 8:00 am.  Also Glendo provides lunch on Sunday and we have a potluck Saturday evening with pulled pork provided by our EAA group.  It is great fun for those of you looking for a place o fly to this weekend and the weather is looking good.  This strip is good for Cessnas, Pipers and other such training type aircraft too.

    Hey Ed I know that you are not into the fiberglass anymore but it sure would be easy to layup a sheet on some plastic with some epoxy.  I think that you can attach it the same way that the aluminum is attached.  I would love to make you some but being retired I just don't seem to have any time, you know how that goes, right?

    This is not unusual I think, mine has a rough patch around the same area but it is easy to use slightly more or less throttle on the approach where I run into it.  One thing you can try is doing the pneumatic syncing at that RPM and see if that helps if you really feel like you need it to run at that RPM.  The bigger crossover tube sounds interesting, thanks for the link Jim.  I didn't know that Hal was marketing that mod.  The 912's intake manifold leaves a lot to be desired (at least the older ones) at low speeds the front cylinders run richer than the rear ones and I suspect that this may be true across the range of operation.

    Fuel line float balls
    Who was it that sells the little float balls for the fuel line sight gauge?

    I did not have issues installing the tire on the wheel with the tube deflated but the bolts were a little struggle getting them aligned but the length was ok.  Not to sure I would want to try bolting with the tube inflated but my tire slipped right on to the rim. Mine are the straight tread style not the smooth tire.  Is that what you have?

    I am running them with the tube with no issues. Just had one apart the other day.  What issues are you having Brice?

    I have the 2.25 version and would recommend the larger one as well,  the small one is very hard to read the oil pressure due to the display setup.
