  1. Got the rubber wheel, clogged up pretty quick, because it’s under the wing makes it hard to soak it ,so far metho soaked rag and fingernails , been at it off and on for hours , about half way there, thanks everyone for the advice
  2. Where can I get a rubber stick
  3. Tried citrus also carby and brake cleaner , surely there’s something that would dissolve the glue but not the paint
  4. WD40 is about the only thing I haven’t tried, what is isopropanol, tried all the paint thinners , metho, turps, acetone ,tried RP7 is that the same as WD 40, my hand still sticks to it , driving me nuts
  5. Got the rego numbers, with a heat gun, removed from under the wing, now I’m stuck with the sticky glue residue left behind , tried everything to dissolve it , any ideas?
  6. My trim indicator , series of leds , is showing out of range , gaps at the bottom , over full at the top, unsure how to adjust, something to do with the trim motor in the elevator I’m thinking , any ideas, thanks , Greg
  7. Mate just bought a jab with a microair radio, for some reason the display lights up when the avionics is switched on but no frequencies show up also when he turns off the knob on the set the display stays on ,the aircraft is new , any ideas
  8. I wonder where Dick Smith stands on these changes
  9. Yep , did that, seemed ok, blasted off, all good, figured it must have been a stuck needle.
  10. Leaking internally, talked to wal, he seemed to think it was something caught under the needle or sinking floats, about to go flying always a worry when engine can get go you airborne and then starts to play up , not a lot of room to get back to my strip
  11. Finally finished changing all the fuel lines and filters, went flying, engine started to run rough below 4500 , managed to get back on the ground where it stopped with fuel dripping from the exhaust, towed it back to the hanger , discovered the right side carby running fuel with the pumps on , pulled it apart can’t see anything fitted it back on, seemed ok , got it started , try again but noticed the fuel pressure above .6bar map gauge 40 on take off, unsure whether the fuel pressure is running to high and forcing fuel past the needle, so I put it back down again , wondering whether something
  12. That’s how it all works , the carby bowls are sealed and the breathers are vented to the air box which pressurises the fuel in the bowls , gives it more fuel when running in the boost range
