    when I set it up I made a new system that holds the spring, When I built it I set the springs up with no preload thinking I would get more travel but I guess springs don't work that way.
    I stuck the springs in my press today pushing a a scale they are only reading 260lbs per inch. Wonder if they made a change in the springs over the years? Who knows but I will figure something out.
    Its no wonder the highwing gear bends up these birds. Today I did the spring test with the yellow die springs my press and a bit more accuracy  the scale  was reading 402 per 1/4 inch holy crap thats 1600lbs per inch Seems a bit much but I guess when you only have 2 inches of travel you might need it high.

    125 to 151 is normal. Most 2 strokes that are lower than 100psi are a real bugger to get started.

    I would like to know that question as well.
    Mine ain't worth a hoot.
    I do think most of my issue is my plane is slightly toed out so when it rolls forward it pull the gear out. Not cool, pulls the springs totally flat ha. Try again right.
    I thought I would put the original spring that came with the gear in my press on a scale.  It hit 400lbs in 3/8ths of an inch quite a difference there.

    Just pull the cord, The compression tester will hold the reading and add the next pull to it. You got nothing to worry about there Turbo.

    Very helpful thanks. Obviously I will not have my phase 1 flown off this year in time (full time job) but I sure would love to fly in there and meet you guys and see your planes one of these years.
