Upgrading to bitumen seal on the main runway with PAL......hoping to re-open 2nd week of April....fingers crossed ! Group membership fees of $110pa , lease for hangar (12m X 12m ) $900pa , council rates $700pa ( for bugga all ). https://www.clarevalleyaerodrome.com.au/

    Rust spots on fly wires

    No worries franco you keep on proving it . I'd be a bit careful with the diesel though, the sulphur in it will bite into even 316. maybe RP7 or our own invention , WD40 soaked into the cloth .

    Engine Exhausting

    Well , this is for the engine knowledgeable. I've been tooling around with a flat 4 ( well known brand) engine for education reasons ; replaced exhaust valves ( hand lapped) into recut seats. Compression "seems" much improved , on pull thru ( not leak down tested ,at this stage). Here's the query, pulling through on the exhaust stroke the exhaust is sucking in prior to the actual exhaust ........as if the exhaust valve opens maybe 10 -15 degrees before the piston hits BDC. Is this typical or "normal" or is the timing of the cam misaligned?? The case has not been split as only the top end has been worked on.
