Have your tried the 583 pipe on a 582? 

 

Do you have any pictures of the mount or the wing?  What spars are in the wing?  (.065" or .083")

Hey Snaps- Last time I saw you at the SPB, you were ass deep in trailer repairs and just a tad bit grumpy. Hell of a way to end the week, hope you made it home without any drama. BTW, who's the numbskull that ordered those tiny mugs for the CornRoast this year? On the bright side, I got a great deal on an iFly720 at the auction. One of only two with a custom SPA splash page on start up, pretty cool! See you guys next year, Doug

Snaps,

  Does your left damaged speedwing have a tank in it that you would consider removing and selling? I only need the left tank and fuel cap. If not does anybody have a left speedwing tank for sale?

 

Thanks, Cliff

Try Rob at Performance Products LLC - he is making new ones, alcohol resistant.

If he only has the STOL tanks, you can still use them by glueing a rib under the center of the tank to match the speedwing profile.

good call Ed, Rod made my tanks for my speedwing, they are actually for the STOL but i made them work nicely and now I have more fuel capacity.

Robert,

     Rod just told me - look at "fng post" in Introduce Yourself - that the STOL tanks wont work with the speedwing ribs because of the TOP profile? :huh:  WELL - If yours worked, why not others?

     If memory serves me - we talked about adding another layer of rib caps on top, but you did some grinding and got them to work without adding any caps like I did.

Some people may not be OK with a slight variation of the wing profile right at the tank, hence the "they won't work" statement... Some of us are not quite so picky and we know we are not building an oshkosh winner, just an honest flying machine... the tanks will work for us that fly our planes instead of polishing them :lol:

Ed it's not "they won’t work", the tanks I manufacture have a slight variation in the wing profile and if you want to fly then I say go for it and make it work. That’s what experimental is all about.

And, don't forget that Kitfox has moonshine-resistant tanks too - After all, Kitfox is just an Avid Clone.

Here is the difference between the 2 ribs types we deal with so here is a STOL rib and a flat bottom "Speed" rib.

Thanks Rod,

      Looks like the rear spar is at same height in both, so tops should be OK - just bottom profile different - don't see why it wouldn't work - just look different on bottom.  Ribs on each side of tank could be built up to match profile.
