Mike,

Where do you buy your main wheel bearings?
If you have no luck looking under bearings in the yellow pages try Grainger.
The inch sized bearings are a lot more expensive than the metric sized ones.
I bought the bearings for my Q's control system there. Still a lot cheaper

Print this information out and put it in you engine book


Sat. February 23 the State of Wisconsin had their annual Aviation
Mechanics
Refresher Seminar. Their was 371 at the day long talks.
One of the good speakers was from Precision Airmotive Corp. For the last
10+
years they
own most of the old manufactures of the older fuel systems. Topic was
knowing
your
fuels systems (carbs. and fuel injections). First go to our web site.
www.percisionairmotive.com

Go through the catalog list and get the parts booklet on the fuel system on
your engine.
One of the reasons you should have a parts booklet and service manual, is
when you have a
problem and call them, you can use the right name of the part you are
talking
about.
One of the big problems is the first time mechanic is over torque the
different parts
and strip the threads.
Another big problem he said was letting a fuel system set, unused for over
28
days.
After 28 days the fuel is starting to do damage to the inside of its system
and
should be removed, cleaned and stored in a plastic bag. I asked, do you
know
how many thousands of aircraft set over 28 days. Yes, that is why you
should
fly the
aircraft once a week. This is also why oil a Company will tell you also,
so
it can get the
case over 180 Deg to burn the moisture out of the engine.
Another tip was for the sport aircraft builders, Do Not Buy a fuel system
for your engine,
until it is needed for your final inspection and for flight. To many set,
for years collecting
moisture and dust. We are not in the business to make money from selling
replacement parts.
The speaker show us may pictures of problems that some of these self made
experts have
done on rebuilding. Yes, he said it cost money to overhaul a system, we
also
have in our
new factory building, a new flow test machine, to make sure it was done
right.
Liability is a big problem in aviation. If you can't fix the problem, give
us
a phone call at
360-651-8282. They will work with you to get it right. IT MUST RUN PERFECT.

Hey Alan! Great video! I watched it today because I couldn't fly. It's
been snowing since last night and it is probably going to snow through this
evening! Just a nasty day - what a wonderful time to recall a great fly-in!
If it weren't so close to Oshkosh, I'd try to make it out there for it.

Hi Pat

I'll agree with you. Alan did a great job on the video. I'll have to show
it to Paul Fisher, maybe he would get ambitious and fly out next time. Seems

a little far for the Q1, unless I can find some more vacation time.

Hey gang!

Considering Livermore (LVK) this year?
Not sure... on the fence?

Check out Alan's excellent video of Livermore 2001.

I received the video last week and it rocks!

He TOTALLY captured how fun it was, in a broadcast quality video.
Can't make it to LVK-2002? Get the video and pretend you went to

I've put together a nice video encapsulating the Tandem Wing Fly-in held
here at Livermore this past August... (i know, 5 months later, but

have been busy!) Included, are our visits to the scale P-38 and to Mark
Summer's hangar to check out his 0-200 conversion project; plus lots of
Quickie and Dragonfly banter and personal vignettes. If anybody would
like
a copy, contact me off-list and we can exchange mailing addresses etc.
Fifty-seven minutes of inspiration to get more of our planes in the air!
Those who attended the Fly-in may find this to be a nice souvenir of a
great
day; those who weren't able, this will give you a taste of what you can
expect next year. Jim and Bob are certain to do another outstanding job
in
putting together a great opportunity to see and talk Q's for us builders
and

Call a prop maker and tell them some details about your project. Things like
what rpm you are trying to achieve, HP rating at that rpm, the aircraft it is
going on, any limitations like diameter, etc. They should be able to suggest
a size. But don't count on it being your last prop. Ed Sterba will have
those kind of discussions with you. So should other mfgr.

Re: Axle nut torque

These are open bearings with a seal on the outside face only.

The discs seem to run true right out of the box. The only problem I have is
the caliper rattling on the guide pins when taxying. Gently applying the
brakes stops the rattle.

The main wheels on the standard Q uses sealed bearings, no way to grease. I
replace mine every few years. You must have different wheels? I also never
see any grease on the wheels.

One more hint... I trued my brake disks by putting the wheel assy on a axle
and spinning the wheel. I then took a screwdriver mounted on a platform and
slowly moved it to the disk. If it hits for the entire revolution your good

Dave Chalmers------ Wheel bearings should be snugged up tight and then
backed off a bit to allow the wheel to turn freely. Meaning there is no
bearing tension slowing the wheel down, but also no slop in the wheel to
bearing connection. The grease will come out of the wheel until it finds
it's level. If your wheel is too tight it may be getting hot, but I
doubt that. Jack up the airplane and spin the wheel while tightning the
nut. When the nut makes the wheel slow down, back up one cotter pin
hole on the castlenut and that should be good. Same as on your boat
trailer.----------- Canada Chris
