Jim,

I just made one out of quarter inch aluminum and use the factory gasket. It's just dandy.

    Hi Jim

    There is an oil gallery on the face that is about 1/8th inch diameter. I used some PRC on an 1/8 countersink rivet to seal it off. had no leaks on my plate at all.

I also used several 8 x 11 sheets of sand paper laid flat to “surface” the metal covere that replaced the suction pump when removed.  Cleared up most all of the oil seeps and things are now dry after several years.

Hi gang,

 
I am about 80% moved out of my rental hangar but had a delay.
 
I developed hangar rash on the right elevator of the Tri-Pacer. This gave me an opportunity to learn fabric covering.
 
I flew from Benson E95 to KFHU Sierra Vista last Sunday deviating for a low pass at Whetstone air park dirt strip. On final at KFU 12,000 ft runway I flew in ground effect for 3/4 of the runway before landing. It is towered during the week but G under the restricted airspace on weekends.
 
Quite different flying from Utah down here and way different from Mike’s Florida videos. Here is one of my neighbors You Tube channels that gives the perspective of flying in AZ. https://youtu.be/FHQZhLiVLnE 
 
Good flights for all,

I had a problem where my carb was fowling the plugs bad, to the point where the next start up failed the mag test.  I pulled the carb apart and thoroughly cleaned the passes related to the idle mixture area.  Seems if a tiny hole gets plugged in the idle needle then the carb pumps fuel into the mixture circuit.  
 
So what I thought was fun today was...  called in to land 8 miles out.  got a right downwind for RWY 18 (9730 feet long).  The wind was a 12K left crosswind (my personal limit is 15K).  Then was cleared to land #2 behind the Airbus on final.  Gota hate that.  So my plan is to stay high, way over his wing tip turbulence.  I was planning on landing long anyway as the taxiway to my hangar is at the end of this long runway.  
 
So I turn base after the Airbus goes by and I'm way high.  All the VASI lights are white.  The Airbus lands and I note where he touched down.  The tower tells me to do an S-turn.  Then the tower clears a Cherokee for take off.  I see the Cherokee sitting on the numbers and think to myself...this isn't going to work out.  After a couple of really slow S-Turns (I'm at 90 mph), I see the Cherokee making some progress getting off the runway.  The Tower tells me to land long.  I hear the tower tell whoever is following me that it's going to work out as I'm landing long and he needs to keep us only 3000' apart!  I get back into landing mode and make a good landing and hard braking to make the turn off that I need to make.  Never a dull moment at KPIE! 
 
Back at the hangar I do a runup to check the mags and everything looks great.  Hopefully my plug fouling is fixed!

I had a problem where my carb was fowling the plugs bad, to the point where the next start up failed the mag test.  I pulled the carb apart and thoroughly cleaned the passes related to the idle mixture area.  Seems if a tiny hole gets plugged in the idle needle then the carb pumps fuel into the mixture circuit.  
 
So what I thought was fun today was...  called in to land 8 miles out.  got a right downwind for RWY 18 (9730 feet long).  The wind was a 12K left crosswind (my personal limit is 15K).  Then was cleared to land #2 behind the Airbus on final.  Gota hate that.  So my plan is to stay high, way over his wing tip turbulence.  I was planning on landing long anyway as the taxiway to my hangar is at the end of this long runway.  
 
So I turn base after the Airbus goes by and I'm way high.  All the VASI lights are white.  The Airbus lands and I note where he touched down.  The tower tells me to do an S-turn.  Then the tower clears a Cherokee for take off.  I see the Cherokee sitting on the numbers and think to myself...this isn't going to work out.  After a couple of really slow S-Turns (I'm at 90 mph), I see the Cherokee making some progress getting off the runway.  The Tower tells me to land long.  I hear the tower tell whoever is following me that it's going to work out as I'm landing long and he needs to keep us only 3000' apart!  I get back into landing mode and make a good landing and hard braking to make the turn off that I need to make.  Never a dull moment at KPIE! 
 
Back at the hangar I do a runup to check the mags and everything looks great.  Hopefully my plug fouling is fixed!
