Finally got her flying again and the engine is running great!  Learned a lot about the engine. But the thing I am most excited about is that my tail actually flies now!!!  Those VGs worked awesome!!!  I actually got to trim nose down today!  I will make a separate VG post once I get some good numbers, but WOW!  Best money spent yet!  And the cheapest upgrade by far!!!

One of my buddies took some pics

That really is a fine looking airplane.  What is that raised lump on the port cowl?

Emory,

Yep, it was for clearance...it is an angle valve engine and the valve cover tabs at the top made contact with the cowl.  I think a standard O-360 would fit...tightly.
