    Want to buy: Jabiru cowl
    Hi all,  I'm kind of looking for an Avid or Kitfox Jabiru engine cowl.  I do have a new MK IV bottom, and a somewhat bruised top (but by no means ruined)   Trade or buy, what have you got?   JImChuk

    Pictures would be nice. :-)   Lots of planes flying without spinners, both of mine.....  If you replace the bungee cords, you are best off to buy the 3/8" shock cord from Aircraft spruce and make your own.  Part # 06-12400  JImChuk

    I have a never used one hanging on the wall, but never got around to trying it out yet.  Are you looking into buying one?   Mostly I've run a warp drive on my plane, and have been happy with it.  JImChuk

    I enlarged the pictures, and at first I thought it was single ignition as well, but in one picture I could clearly see twin plugs.   JImChuk

    I've flown about 550 hrs behind my serial # 903 solid lifter engine.  It's not a 912, but probably better then a 582.   JImChuk

    If you read my post, read Nicks.  He is no doubt right.  I deleted what I said.

    It sells for over 3000 from IVO.  I'll take 1850 plus shipping.  Like I said, it's never been used.  The constant speed controller is 350 from IVO.  Half price for it.  JImChuk

    I've thought about making an enclosed trailer as well.  Thought about using 3/4" conduit for the framework, and the real heavy uncertified fabric aircraft spruce sells.  It's twice as heavy as the medium fabric and sells for about 5 bucks a yard.  That would make it easy to curve it in the front.  JImChuk

    I've epoxied aluminum plates into the spars also, but was trying to stop mice from moving in.  Suppose the foam would have done the same with less effort. JImChuk

    The FAA registration list it under type of aircraft as a glider.  That seems odd.... JImChuk

  15. 1avidflyer added a post in a topic 26” bushwheel ?   

    I was just looking in my Avid manual, and see the pictures of the wheels.  They are 4" wide from the looks of it.  Width looks to be 2/3 the amount of the height.  Something in the back of my mind is telling me they are Cleveland wheels, that's why I looked in the manual in the first place, but didn't see a mention of a name.  I could just as easily be wrong on the brand though, as I'm not at all sure, maybe I'm mixing the ones up from the Chief in my mind.  JImChuk
