    Wanted: Kitfox GSC Aluminum Spinner Backer Plate
    Looking for an older Kitfox (Model II or III) aluminum backer plate for the prop spinner (the stamped plate that goes between the prop shaft and prop) that the large aluminum spinner attaches to.  If you have one please let me know what it is worth to you. This is an original Kitfox kit supplied item for use with the GSC.
    Friend of mine just picked up a Model II, he has the spinner (loose) but unfortunately he is unable to locate the backer plate and was hoping someone had one laying around there shop/hanger that they were willing to part with.

    Fuel Tank Suppliers
    Are there still any suppliers for the early model Kitfox replacement fuel tanks?    Specifically for the undercamber wings of the Model i --> III?

    Thanks All.  It was tough to see her go.  The new owner elected to transport using a one way Penske rental truck.  They took off the wings and rolled her in.  For reference, it fit rather nicely and well protected from the elements.

    Unfortunately some logistical snags prevented the new would-be owner from making the trip out to pick up the plane.  Bird is back for sale again.

    I am at 6100 static which goes to about 6600 full power on climb.  Might also be worth a tach double check.  I was running a Rotax tach early on and had similar issues. it was reading approx 300 RPM higher (compared to a Tiny Tach).  Ultimately it was a combination of my EGT gauge being off scale high (it was an older analog Westach system) and the went to a temp compensated MGL and no more issues.  Plug color is also key.
    I also added a fuel/air sensor in the exhaust that confirmed I was way rich just as an added measure.
     So scrutiny of both sensors and your plug color may help here.

    Chapin, NY Fly In
    Chapin, NY (border of VT and NY) had its 50th Anniversary fly in today.  Unfortunately low ceilings and spotty showers put a bit of a damper on things (much lower than normal turnout).
    On the way home I had to divert to Saratoga AIrport due to showers and parked near the Carbon Cubs at the dealership there.  As I was waiting for the rain to clear, I read through the brochures.  Absolutely beautiful works of art those planes are.  But... 200K for similar performance to a 15K Kitfox, geeze.
