    Rolled on “Herculiner” seems to be the product of choice for cost and availability.

    STOL Demos will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings at the ultralight field.
    We will be camping across the street from the ultralight barn.  God willing, the Mangy will be parked at the Ultralight Field. 
    Our party is scheduled for Thursday afternoon at our campsite, details to follow.

    No that's where I went wrong.  Most soap has silicone it it, so that's very bad. 
    I used MEK and DuPont Prepsolve which work, but not well.  
     
    Zylene is is the thinner in Herculiner and is the cleaning solvent that should be used.

    There is "vintage" camping/parking right next to the Ultralight area, just to the east and another field just north of UL if you look at the map.  These areas allow underwing.

    What are you flying?  There’s many areas, including the ultralight field, that allow underwing camping.

    Trent and I are in contact on this project. He has one product on his to test I have another.  I’m using Herculiner with mixed results.  I believe my problem is poor prep before coating.  More to come this summer.
    Spot repairs probably won’t work. You will need to coat the entire casing to get even balanced use.

    The biggest issue I've seen are people who try to "fix" these carburetors that are not broken and don't need repair.

    Why replace and not repair?

    Probably the most humane thing to do to a Zenair.  Take it out of it's own misery...

    I don't have one for mine and never heard of this request with other friends who've recently been inspected...??
    I'd ask him what he wants.

    Does the header have one continuous flange plate or four individual ones?
    Either way it could be cut in a machining center, surface ground or even flat sanded after welding to make it perfectly flat.

    The choke cable is different.  It is non-locking spring return operation.  
    The Throttle cables can lock in place and are of much heavier core material.
     
    Yes, they are expensive, but far superior quality to anything else on the market.

    McFarlane cables for the throttle and choke - best there is bar none!  If you can do it, get the verier version, I wish I did...
    Vernier
    Plain
    Enrichener/Choke
