  1. I fitted the 6 litre Savannah tank, plastic and has a sensor built in that alarms at about the 5 litre mark.
  2. Thanks, not looking at then just curious of their price. Just thought you may have known their rrp. What did the pre owned set cost you? Cheers.
  3. For info I connect the earth plate to my neg on battery.
  4. Hi Skippy don’t hold out on the price telling that’s what this forums about; sharing info. It’s good info as people are always comparing brands, quality and price. It’s good to know how long the wiring insulation lasts as some sets don’t hold up in our environment. It’s a pain when it cracks off. Some sets last about 8 years same with ear cushions. I’m planing doing an upgrade to two Sony units with the retro fit anr setup mentioned in another thread mid next year.
  5. I use filter elements for the pitot and two fuel tank vents that way the mud wasps can't get in. You can see a mud wasp started to build onto the filter outlet in the pitot image. gets some questions and comments when other pilots see them but they work; got the pitot idea from camps / courses at Kingaroy Gliding club.
  6. Fitted in an early morning flight in the Nynja for just over the hour out to the coast for a look around after fitting the new fuel hose and valve tap at the electric fuel pump outlet. Have 258 hours up now and still enjoy flying her. Looking forward to doing a trip sometime in the future. Landed back by 0730 hrs and off to work. The air was nice and just a light 10 knot cross wind for the landing. Marian is the sugar mill steam and Cape Hillsborough just north of Mackay is the headland and Mt Blackwood has the tower on its top.

  8. Remember sink on the way in Lift in centre and then sink on the way out.
  9. Hi Waraton This is where I got a tube 10 years ago. The correct stuff that Floods put on the plugs when you buy plugs through them. Let me know if any details have changed and I'll up date my info file of bits and pieces. Cheers Mike SILCHEM INTERNATIONAL PTY LTD [mailto:[email protected]] Subject: Re: Silicone paste P12 Just to confirm the 20 ml tubes of Paste P12 are $33 @ delivered.
  10. Yes. I always have an opened bottle and an unopened nor ready for use as I use it a lot, has many uses. I describe it’s holding like a nylock. Nuts don’t loosen. Bit messy so need to be careful. Won’t go wrong buying a bottle from auto supply stores or bearing shops etc. supercheap has it. Cheers
  11. You could put a smear of ‘ aviation soft seal no.3’ on the threads will prevent coming loose pretty much. I use it lots on that sort of application.
  12. Hi If you one of the large 22,000 capacitors check that is still serviceable eg there may brown coloured fluid coming out of it or swollen / burst. If so replace it.
  13. Agree. The investigation report will be an interesting read. It is one of the clubs two gliders online the other is an ASK-21.
  14. All good, mate. No worries good to hear you were at the hangar. Thanks for your info. Cheers Mike
  15. Bert Flood will sell and about $280 plus postage.
