    You could be flooding it. The only time my 503 started hard is when the stator went bad. After the new one was installed it started in 1-3 pulls if primed right.

    I am mixing my gas oil 44:1 for years with a manual mixture control and never had any problems.

    This is what Brett did for me. I added the block to keep my toes off of the brake.

    I never oil my filters. If you get to much oil on them it will run rich.

    I have been using the Artic Sparrow mixture control for years and I always thought I could change the mixture at any rpm.

    Leni is right. The wide landing gear makes it a whole new airplane.

    I did that. If you enlarge the picture you can see I duct taped the end of the spar.

    SkyRaider 1. 447 rotax. Really a nice flying airplane. Owned it about 3 years. Sold it last summer and bought a Champ.

    I wouldn't get real technical with your Avid. These are simple airplanes to own and fly if you have the wide landing gear and Matco tail wheel. I have the Artic Sparrow mixture control. At run up I richen  the mixture until it starts to miss, then back off one turn on the mixture control until it runs smooth. On take off full power, cruise 5950, when its time to land I run cruise power until I know I have the runway made, then back to idle until I flare, then add a little power and let it settle in. I never run it at mid range.

    I think a lot of people convert old boat trailers. This makes it easier to put the main gear ramp towards the back of the trailer rather than put a main gear ramp running from the back towards the front. I built mine to tow facing forward.
