    I doubt any additives or further dilution of the anti-freeze will do much good. You need more air!

    Do you plan on painting it? My plan was to polish then epoxy paint. The FBO I use to work for was painted. You spill some oil and you mop it up. It sure was easy to clean!
    Why termite protection? The structure is all steel, right?

    You should have seen the AD part to install. It wasn't much. It captured the leading edge of the foil and riveted to the fuse! For looks me thinks!!!

    Well to give Beech a break, it was the V tail Bonanza that gave the problem. Over speed the stableators would start wiggling and break their spars. The conventional tail gave no problems I am aware of. There was an AD to "fix" the problem, but the best thing is to TRUST your instruments while in the soup and not over speed! BTW I worked in maintenance at a Beech factory FBO and have a may hours working on Barons and Bonanzas, etc. Compared to other aircraft similar in size and power, they are the best IMO.

    Right, I guess that depends on what you want out of it. The Bronco only has a 12 gallon tank. 20 mpg instead of 15 will be a treat. Plus EFI doesn't pollute the oid like carbs do.

    Sad because it was so avoidable. So another number to added to pilot error.

    Yea, it didn't flood a few years ago, and it was higher then than it was in 1927. I think I am good!

    Nice car! Go EFI and OD and your MPG world will change!!!
    My next ground up will be a first gen Bronco with a 5.0 HO EFI out of a Mustang GT. AOD and all. I expect close to 20 mpg when I get it ironed out!

    I can do that, but I was thinking about moving the slot upwards a half inch or so to help also. I will still have to compress the spring to get it in.
    1/2" on one end of the slot and 1 1/2" slot added on the lower end? Then I can spin and drill another hole on the hat and gain another 3/8" maybe.

    If you are high enough off the ground for it to work, your golden, otherwise....
    As far as the hinge failure, it looked like rot to me. That is one of the first things I inspected, treated, primed and painted on my bird. 
    So I am not buying one.
