    replied to F19 Exhaust and Heat
    Welcome Felix to the Forum. Yes doubling the heat muffs will help plus any extra air you can force into it will improve overall air flow. Some have wrapped annealed door springs around the pipe under the muff covers to pick up more heat. Check with your mechanic first. I've had success by hanging a...

  • To which Ray Stits in the video would snap his finger on the covered and single stitched landing gear - thump!

  • Reference Civil Air Regulations CAR4 1938 for example. Those were the regulations under which my 1941 plane was certified. Section 04.442 Wheels says "Tail wheels may be of any type or model and are not certificated". CAR4a 1950 Section 4a.477 says the same thing for post WWII models. Both...

  • Contact Airframes Alaska and ask. There's a Field Approval for a Scott 3200 here: https://www.taylorcraft.org/docs/Sco...-tailwheel.pdf

  • I should make one. Maybe get a rib plus plywood and trace then cut out the leading edge and bottom shape. Lay the digital level on the straight plywood's edge hanging down below root and tip and subtract the difference.

    Sure Mark. Here's a couple examples using the antenna's twist-on BNC connector. The added ring terminal and wire can be used as either a counterpoise or also ground depending on choice. Tuned properly to 1/4 electrical wavelength the wire does enhance radio performance if only the small antenna supplied...

    Typical ANLs reduce but don't eliminate all general static, or in other words "steady buzz and crackle". If the noise you're hearing is a series of separate but closely spaced "rapid pops" caused by engine ignition then it takes a noise blanker to reduce them. Noise blankers are...

    The plug wires in pic #1 above are lying on or near the cylinder. If wet or contaminated with conductive debris some surface current could occur between the cap and grounded metal.

    One way to test for static is use a common AM portable radio to locate the source(s). Earphones help. Run...

    I'll add another thought. Make sure all electrical connections tfrom the magneto to the spark plugs are clean and tight. If the current can arc across a poor connection it can make pulse static. P-lead filters can reduce static from the magnetos, but normally the p-leads are formed from a two layer...

    Rob's suggestions are excellent. The A23 has an ANL (auto noise limiter) that can help. It's the #3 from the bottom lower right on the face. It will reduce certain harmful interference but may not eliminate all. The suggestion to make sure the antenna base is grounded or connected to the nearby airframe...
