    On all the Avids I've had with the standard 6" wheel, the bearings looked like this. The seal was about 1/4" wide, and was a separate part.  JImChuk

    I think I have an extra one.  Shipping would be a killer though.  To each his own, but I think the sling seat is way more comfortable.  JImChuk

    I don't think you have to many airplanes/projects.  Is there such a thing as to many airplanes?  I don't think so.   Have fun with it Bob :-)   JImChuk

    Thanks guys.  It's been a long time getting to this point.  Still a long way to go though..  :-)   Still have to do the colors on the tailfeathers.  And then of course there is the panel and FWF.  Ya, it'll be a while yet.

    Now it's blue, and soon I'm thru.  Just the yellow left to do.   Wahoo!   (what a poet)  JImChuk

    Real hi tech valves for me...  the snowmobile style ones like Avid supplied with their kits originally.  Look on page 18 of this LEAF catalog.  JImChuk

    To each his own, but I like having a valve for each tank, and I only run on one at a time.  I do have the ram air tubes on both gas caps as well, plus the standard Avid aluminum pipe header tank.  I think the low fuel warning is a good idea, although I don't have one.  JImChuk

    You found my next project..... Darn!  Actually the doors are missing as well.  Kind of interesting is the wings have flaperon hangers like a Kitfox 4.  On a close up of the wing, you can see where the fabric was patched at each rib tail.  No telling if that's a good thing or bad.  N# is expired.  Wonder what the FAA's position on ownership is when bought from a sheriff's sale.   I tried to talk to registrations in OK. and got hung up on after waiting for a half hour.  Wonder if anyone on here is actually interested in this plane.....JImChuk

    I have Allen's old one that came on my Kitfox 4 from Texas.  I should try to move that one down the road as well.  (Allen was the original builder of my Texas Kitfox 4 that I'm painting right now.)   JImChuk
