  1. EDMO added a post in a topic Wide Gear   

    Someone a while back talked about a (opposite?) brake being automatically applied by full rudder pedal from the way the MCs were installed.  I haven't figured that one out yet.   There are some posts about some Wide Gear makers currently making them lots of $$$$ cheaper than C5 Joey's, and also some spring changes and slot elongment needed on one set.   I haven't kept up with all of that because I have the Grove tri-gear.   EDMO

    Thomas,  I cant say this for a fact, but I think that Fred may speak languages other than French, and somehow both of you write English, or I might say, "American", because we use different words than our English cousins.
      Send him a PM (personal message) to find out.
    I have flown in and out from the Army Airfield there in Stuttgart.  I was also in the hospital there.
    Cheers,  EDMO

    Well, you have 5x the SF as mine - should cost a dollar or two more.  ;<)  Mine was on old fill dirt on side of hill - I had buried my 4x4 truck up to the frame there when I was moving into the house - and the inspector said they had to go down into the original clay, so that's why it went about 8 or 10 feet deep at deepest edge.  I think our "frost depth for construction" is about 3 feet down, but it never freezes anywhere near that deep.   EDMO

    Ground never freezes down there - just sinks into a hole in the old ocean floor!   EDMO

    You post on the For Sale section same as you post here, and add photos same as here.   Some put prices, others want to PM from buyers.  I think when prices are posted, you don't waste your time or others time.  You can always put "or best offer".   I think someone was recently looking for tanks.  EDMO

    When they dug the trenches for the footings for my 16 x 32 Garage/shop they were so deep that the inspector asked if they had found any Chinese money!  ;<)  $8K for footings and wall foundations - floor was extra - 8 years ago.  EDMO

    Did you use Ground Penetrating Radar for the sinkhole under it?    ;<)   We used Quickcrete epoxy coating on wife's garage floor about 5 years ago and it has been great.   EDMO

    Darn,  I had a Shelby Cobra Mustang parked next to my house today, and didn't take a photo!   Guess my little red Ranger and lawn tractor wouldn't count for much?  EDMO

    Mine was pretty when I married her - Now she's like an old pair of shoes:  Worn and wrinkled, just like me, but comfortable!  ;<)  EDMO

    Thanks Guys.   The inside joke is that I live with a little yapper who understands some German, looks like that, and supposedly gave me the card.  The hat, Lederhosen and beer just go naturally together.   ;<)  Cheers,  EDMO

    I don't think anyone can accurately give you a "fair market price" without a complete inventory and condition report of all the parts. 
    How much are they asking?   EDMO
