    Since the tank replaces several ribs and I think a drag tube, which would indicate to me that the tank is providing mechanical strength to the wing assembly. That would seem to indicate Hysol. Am I missing something? 
    I thought scratching the spar with sand paper was bad since it helps for a stress riser in the spar.

    Removing Hysol
    I have an Avid MK IV that had the old tanks removed (mostly) and I need to put the new tanks in. I want to use a heat gun to remove the hysol that is still stuck to the spars. What is the appropriate temperature to use? I want to soften the Hysol but the ruin the temper of the spars.
    Best,

    Surprised you're having problems. I had an A6 I used in my cub (no electrical system) and flew across the country with it. I would recharge it at night and be good for the day.

    Hi Randy,
    Do the cuffs improve the performance? If so in what direction better cruise speed or lower stall speed?

    Hi John,
    How are you doing? Does the above message mean you are no longer interested in my main gear? Let me know.

    I sold my nose gear to John. He was talking about buying the main gear as well but I have not heard back about that. I did pass Johns email address to Christian.

    Rotec
    Has anyone flown a kitfox or an avid with a rotec 2800 radial? Seems like a lot of weight up front. I look forward to hearing.

  18. Goldendale-flyer added a post in a topic Avid Mk IV HH kit   

    This is HH with Stol wings. Tanks are there for both wings. The guy I bought it from removed the original tanks to replace them with the newer tanks. There is a brush gear as sold by Brett. Also a tail wheel. There is no fwf components other than the cowling. It does have the 16" stretch. The wings have been on it, the tail will bolt right on. That's about it. covering material is there but the chemicals are pretty old.

    Hi Mark,
     
    Are you still working on your Bearhawk Patrol? Are you building from scratch or working from a welded kit?

    Hi Jim,
    They sent me drawings for an Avid motor mount. The mount they sent did not match the drawing, and I am assuming it was for a KF IV

    Hi Rob,
     
    I did call Jabiru USA when researching and buying the engine mount. They sent me their drawing which I could check against the aircraft. What they sent did not match the drawing and I suspect actually was for a Kitfox IV. I am going to research doing my own mount, so a second would be no big deal. I will get back to you in couple weeks.
