Replace that mag with an electronic ignition.  Electroair and P Mag are the units I use.

Hi guys,
I have a intermittent mag issue. Getting a big drop and having more problems clearing out what I think is loaded up plugs. Always trying to leaning by the way.
Starting down the plug and cylinder coldness first before I dive into a mag issue. I was wondering what plugs everyone is running . I have a pumped up O200 with no injection. Has anyone used “fine wire “ plugs for the bottom 
thanks

Re: Finally

  I upped my exit back to Oklahoma to tomorrow. Got a big showdown inside the factory on the way. I read the hand written notice on the way in the door today
 that the factory folks are goin full Brandon.  Not happy with the Hoky Poky mandate and by leaving then I have a window of no snows in the Cascades for 
 a few days. I staged my storage unit in Arlington yesterday and ready to load my ol Dodge and "git outta Dodge!!"

 WaRshington (that how Kansans say the State..adding an R) has big problems this Winter with far fewer snow plow operators.  Already shut down a bunch of Ferry 
boats, and that is totally not a good thing here at all. Roads and bridges not getting repaired (not like Oklahoma has great roads either tho).

 It'll be good to get back to the homestead. First on the list is to lasso Das Frankenbird taking out to the back corral and riding him back to green broke..haha.  

Gonna finish watching our first Q builder video tonight. I got distracted by watching Roncz and Rutan...especially Burt giving his history working at Bede in Newton.

777X is...well.. who knows? 

 Paine field looks like it did back in 2010! Aircraft parked everywhere to the point the General Aviation

Mostly it is major problems with Biden pushing his Hokey Pokey mandates but some is parts and hardware stuck 
out there somewhere off L.A. in the China boat. M.E can't fix stupid or late!

 Never seen this before Charlie, pretty sad to see this for a 3rd generation Lazy B guy like myself. 

Build rates as a snails pace. Last time I was here in 2013 we were at a 3.5 rate on 777 and 10 days on 747-8. 

Balls to the walls and better not sit on a committed release because the incorporation unit would 
be in build at the time D.E. got it off the board and into ETAC! 

 I have had enough of the factory now. Near 5 decades. Tossing in the towel and looking forward to be the 
Wal Mart greeter. 

 You still gonna move your birds from Utah? I'll be driving right through Provo on Saturday.

Plugs

 

Hi guys,
I have a intermittent mag issue. Getting a big drop and having more problems clearing out what I think is loaded up plugs. Always trying to leaning by the way.

Hey guys THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!
A picture is worth a thousand words.
I thought that piece had to go completely across from side to side.
Man was I scratching my head on that.
 So simple now that I see it in a photo.

Thanks for the files as well Kris.
I had cut those hinges and am not 100% satisfied with how they look.
My brother has been a cnc programmer all his career so I'll get him to work with them and see if he can get something made for me.
Thanks again

As for the snow.....kinda have mixed feelings.  I'll be plowing the 400 highway this winter. If it snows I have to work, but I also get to hit the slopes once we clear the road. If it isn't snowing, I get to spend time with my baby in the shop and still get on call pay. 

Hope it doesn't hamper your flying too much Chris.

Cheers

Good morning Peter,

I just watched your Q tour. It was very informative. 

You have a nice looking plane.

Question about the brakes; can they hold the plane back, static/stopped?
Or would that tip the nose down and cause a prop strike?

Good job Jay!

During my early testing I used a sand bag that I named "Sandy".  Sandy went along with me for much of the first year I flew the plane.  She gave me much better control on the ground (more weight on the tailwheel).

After enjoying Peter’s Q2 and his hangar presentation yesterday on Zoom, I went out to fly my Q in the beautiful crisp clear blue fall sky here in western Colorado. The main focus of my flight was to put the remainder of my shot bag ballast in the plane and see how it responded with more aft cg. My shot bags are 50 pound bags of steel blasting beads and I have 3 of them for a total of 150 lb.. I have a cloth cover bag for each shot bag that has handles, so I can carry them and put them in the passenger seat one at a time and buckle them all in with the seat belt.

 

The flight was good. Took only slightly longer to get off the runway, and climbed out between 500 to 700 fpm at about 95 mph IAS.  I found that I did not lose much performance on the high end with my steely passenger on board, and the plane was very stable in pitch after trimming it for cruise flight. The only real noticeable change was I needed some left roll trim to stay level. I did a few practice approaches to my relatively short field, so I knew that I could get a nice landing and I did get a nice landing. So, that was a successful completion of the shot bag passenger program. As far as my passengers, they were very well behaved. Here is a very short video of one of my passes down the runway from yesterday (http://n8wq.scheevel.com/videos/IMG_0870.MOV ).

 

So…. I went out to the airport again today, since I had a little tinkering that I needed to do. I took the shot bags out of the plane to work in back of the seat a little and after this, I was putting in some more gas to go for a short flight when one of my airport friends, Jerry, who is a retired AI stopped by and expressed an interest in also being ballast (I realized that I have a lot of friends named Jerry!). Unlike one of my other friends named Jerry, this one is short and weighs only about 130 pounds, so we agreed he would be my first passenger.

 

Off we went. The air was a little warmer than yesterday (close to 60 deg. F) since it was early afternoon when we took off, so DA was about 5200 feet (field is 4750 MSL). Take off was about the same as yesterday and we climbed nicely at about 600 fpm at 95 IAS.  Went away from the field and did some air work. I gave him the plane and was surprised to find that he was not very stable in altitude (he has like 10,000 hours in all different small planes). I think it was because he is short and was sitting down in the plane a bit more than he is used to, so forward view tends to make you want to dive a little. I showed him how nicely it turns tight, which still impresses me, then we went back to the airport and did one test pass, and a second completed landing which turned out very nice, so I did not scare either one of us, which is a plus.

 

So another milestone passes for me…I have flown the first passenger in my Quickie! Now I will see if I can talk my wife into flying with me. She is the same size as Jerry who flew with me today.

tilt forward canopymods

Mike Steinsland
 

Hi Guys,
I'm doing a forward tilting canopy,
I have the drawings for this but I'm not sure about how the back of the canopy is modified.
I see that the bottom rear is cut at an angle to allow for clearance as it tilts up and away from the seat bulkhead.
If anybody has those dimensions and maybe some photos they could send me I would really appreciate it.

Any suggestions as to what to watch out for while I'm doing this would also be appreciated.

Cheers
Mike
