Re: Walter Mikron 3

Rupert, if you PM me your email I'll have a look and see if my Mikron manual (at the hangar) has the Hobson carb in it. Mine is a Jikov carb, so will be different. I have a contact in CZ who can help with the info too and is my go-between with Parma. Regards, Dave

Google 'motorcycle fork hard chroming' - plenty of options there perhaps.

Re: Compass Repair Kits

Thanks for the helpful replies. I'll crack on with the job... when using whiskey or gin, at least there's a source of enjoyment available in the cockpit!
Cheers,

The self same kit bought in the US, retails for less than $12. How annoying. I can make gaskets, but can anyone suggest where to get the correct...

Re: Becker Radio AR4201

Try Dickie Feakes here: http://bas.uk.net/index.html. Although the site's about gliders, I believe he used to work for/on Becker radios and he's replaced the internal Li battery on my AR3201 in the past. Very helpful chap.

Re: Prop bolts

I didn't spot your post Paul. Yes, I still have them, but it's PROB40 too late for you and Colin's right, they are metric.

Re: Wing Root Fairings

Problem sorted. On the advice of a self-confessed 'serial ac builder', I used 2 part PU foam, sanded to shape and filled where necessary with West System epoxy Microlight filler. Messy but succesful.

I just saw the recent responses, having returned from a Canadian holiday. I've postponed work on the wing roots, whilst concentrating on the engine cowlings... Julian, thanks.

Re: Pitot Tube Bending

BIll, I have got plastic tube in the wing, but don't like the look of plastic in the cockpit, so it turns metal through the centre section and into the cockpit. Dave
