Canard fuselage/main gear for sale

yahoo! inc© 2014 <rongowan@...>
 

When I started my current project "Nexus" I made myself two kits. I will sell the second kit to the right buyer for $1,500. The kit consist of fuselage top and bottom with nose. Fuel/baggage strake leading edges and main gear. All molded parts are glass in the inside only. The fuselage is intended for tandem seating ( for the full figured canard aviator?) and is 39" at pilot seat and 27" at passenger seat. Could be used with Cozy or Long EZ spar and wings. May throw in extra parts if needed. Cash only and must be picked. I am located in the DFW area (Denton Co. )

Custom Aircraft Parts will probably sell'em. They built the exhaust system for my 360. Bob

I have one slip flange that leaks. I keep thinking its the flange gasket leaking but it's the slip fitting. Does anyone have any ideas on how to seal it?
Thanks

I just welded short stubs to ACS exhaust flanges. Then, when fitting the rest of the exhaust pipe, take the stub and the rest of the exhaust to the muffler shop and have them "expand" the pipe for a slip fit.
The spring connecting points are just washers cut in half. When welding them in place be sure to allow adequate room for the wrench to get the exhaust nuts on off.

Hi All,
Can anyone point me to a source for the exhaust manifold slip joints for the Lyc 0-360/0-320? (no luck on the ACS website)
By slip joints I mean the parts that bolt to the cylinders which form the first parts of the system attached to the engine.
I plan on making a new exhaust system and these items form the start point.
Thanks!

Re: CHT issues fixed

Elwood Johnson
 

The key is not to remove and replace the silicone baffles, the key is to have it fold out away from the top of engine so the high pressure area will hold it tight to the cowl.  If it folds in toward top of the engine its still not doing the job.  The red silicone baffle material is OK as long it folds in the right direction.  Other materials are better at taking a SET making mounting the cowl and easier job. i'm only talking about the baffle on each side of the engine running front and back just above the rocker covers.
Good luck.

I fly Southwest regularly, and the last time, three weeks ago, the flight attendants weren't that entertaining, but the pilot was as we approached Rochester, kidding us about having left Phoenix and it's weather for ROC and (at that time) the cold and snow!
He was quite entertaining and had everyone laughing as well. We got the last laugh, though...waiting outside in the shuttle pickup area.  Everyone was crowded around the one infrared heater in the enclosure, and the poor pilot only had a short sleeve shirt and no jacket!  He did find a knit cap he had pulled down over his ears though!

Chrissi,

If memory serves (and it doesn't as well as it used to) the Central States "picnic" at the Explorers Post was/is on Wednesday evenings, but it seems to have fizzled out. You might check with Terry Schubert to be sure.

Having said that, Wednesday is good for me. I always enjoy your event!

Just received the above request email. From scmills2006@...  So, If any of you 3000+ very ez builders, flyers or just plans owners would share a copy of your plans with this individual it would be appreciated. If it was a request for long EZ plans I would just send a copy of mine.

Re: Canard trailing edge question.

Christopher Seats
 

My definition of 1/16 was in inches.  I will have the minimum glass to glass bond at the trailing edge and may extend the upper canard skins at the trailing edge to allow enough extra material to be sanded to a nice flat plane from tip to tip.

Thanks for the help.

Even after allowing for the top 4 layers of glass at the leading edge, my trailing edge appears to be 1/16 inch short. I understand this is a critical area for proper air flow. Does it need to be exact?

What's the definition of "exact"? 1/16"? 1/32"? 0.001"? 1 micron?

One issue with the plans is that there are few tolerances, so we're left to our own device. As long as you have the 0.3" of GTG bond at the TE, I would argue that 1/16" is not a significant deviation from the chord size of the elevator. It is on the order of 1.5% of nominal on the size of the elevator, and about 0.5% of the chord size of the canard. I'd be very surprised if most elevators (and ailerons, for that matter) weren't either oversize or undersize by somewhere in that neighborhood.

However...
 
and if so whats the best way to extend the trailing edge?

EJ's advice on how to extend it slightly looked good to me, if you really want to adjust the size a bit. It'll grow a bit with micro, prime and paint, so I'd probably just leave it alone, but that's just me.
