Re: COZY: Mounting a Nose Wheel Tire

Joel Ventura
 

Everyone has their own tricks to do this task.  Here are mine:

1. Coat the tube with talcum powder so it slides easily inside the tire.  The manufactures recommend this (be careful not to breath the talc dust in the air).
2. Assemble the tube, tire, and wheel, and loosely screw on the nuts by hand.
3.  Lay the wheel on a flat surface, and you should be able to easily see and/or feel with your finger if the two halves of the wheel are completely seated against each other by looking and/or feeling inside the center of the wheel. In any case, as a precaution I always do the next step.
4. Inflate the tube to a few PSI with the nuts still loose.  If the tube is folded over and trapped between the wheel halves, inflating it will pull the tube out from that gap, allowing you to fully seat the wheel halves together.  Deflate the tube and seat the wheel halves together.  Double check by sight and/or touch that this is true.  If not, repeat the cycle.  (In my experience it always worked the first time).
5. Then torque the nuts to spec.

That is it, no cardboard or plastic needed.

Also, I have read several times on this list, and from other reputable sources, that you should replace your tube when you replace the tire because the tube expands once it is inflated and used.  I do not feel that is necessary, and I don't replace the tube unless it shows signs of  wear or deterioration.  The tube is well protected inside its hermetically sealed chamber inside the tire, especially if it is inflated with nitrogen rather than air, and can last for decades.  And I have never pinched a used tube using the method described above.  The tubes in my C150 are about 20 years old, and have been through many tire changes.  I did have a tube failure because the sharp edge on the valve stem hole of the wheel cut through the valve stem.  I was finally forced to replace that tube (though I did briefly consider gluing the stem back on).  I ground those sharp edges off my wheels so I will not have that problem in the future.

That said, the ground speeds in our canards are much higher, and therefore so are the potential consequences of a flat tire while in motion.  It is reasonable to feel that putting in a new tube is a small price to pay for an increased safety margin.  Just save me your old tubes.

First couple were sort of rough, but after that I'd learned how to do a

Old trick, but, I use a 2-liter pepsi bottle. Does an even better job.

Was nice that the NTSB felt it was necessary to “tweet” it was a Rutan aircraft and no other significant comment.
Plane looks like it landed upright and it says he was ejected from the plane.  We’ve seen some abrupt impacts but no ejection. 
My condolences to the friends and family. I don’t know him but sounds like he touched a lot of hearts. Beautiful plane.

Re: Eaa live arrivals

I haven't been to OSH in many years, but they used to get saturated with aircraft about a day or so before the event.  I found it much easier to go in after they saturated and being an experimental there was always room for us and going in was no problem and minimal traffic because everyone else had to go elsewhere.

Re: Lightspeed Ignition - Connector Suggestions?

Hi Saro,
There is no maintenance requirements on these EI systems which justifies adding firewall connectors or the like....
Only consider what else need to go on the firewall and do not run the wires there....

I had an existing hole in the FW from my rotary installation, so I dremmeled it out sideways, just enough to fit the connector thru, without the housing. Than filled the void, but don't remember how? It was long time ago.
