  1. There was a mark on the ring which I managed to work away with an abrasive tape and reassembled with permatex exhaust goo , but I may be up for a new pipe, do you think the yellow stain would be from the leak , blowing a gale here at the moment so reluctant to go flying
  2. Mine are bolted , 2 bolts , a fitted ring on the header seats against a matching chamfer in the port
  3. 914 rear left , the stain looks like it starts at the exhaust port , it’s on the carby , firewall , oil tank and streaming away outside from the cowl , the only thing that would dissolve it was carby cleaner in a spray can .
  4. Had a yellow stain appearing from around the left side of the cowl , looks like it was coming out of the exhaust where it fits into the head , could it be that the pipe wasn’t seated properly and maybe allowing unburnt fuel to leak out hence the yellow colour, I’ve had a go at reseating the compression ring but haven’t flown yet , has anyone come across this. Greg
  5. Your right, forgot the transponder, how much to fit one .
  6. Is it possible to fly into controlled airspace in a 24 rego under a RPL if the radio and altimeter is certified, I heard is was but not sure , thinking of getting my RPL just for this reason
  7. Found a electrician that can do it , only trouble he is in NSW , over the river, Moama, and can’t work in VIC, but is going to try figure something out hopefully
  8. Three wires , three phase, l guess HV, feeding dairy’s, anyway worth a try
  9. Looks like the way to go , thanks for that, l know a few sparkies hopefully one can do it, do they use the same rod to replace the fuses on the pole
  10. Looks about 12 meters, could stand on top of a cattle truck and get a lot closer, what’s a L2 ASP , who sells the rotamark, do they clamp around the wires
  11. Anyone had a go at putting those orange balls on power lines , what’s involved, cost, I’m with powercor and a bit terrified what they will charge , the balls cost $600 for three,
  12. Below the sliders there is the blue tooth button , then plus and minus buttons that control the music volume, then below them there is another button , is that it, Greg
  13. Having the same problems, unsure which black button you are talking about
