    Bad slosh sealant in a leaking wet wing

    Good to know - that was my hope. I'll see how acetone does on this nasty red sealant. Thanks!

    Bad slosh sealant in a leaking wet wing

    It's a BD-5B. The tank simply is the wing and spans across numerous rib bays, both sides of the tube spar - no way to access it without deskinning the wing! I may be able to pull off the access panel at the wing root to get inside and manually seal the leaking areas, since I believe they're at...

    Bad slosh sealant in a leaking wet wing

    Hi all, I've got a project airplane with metal, wet wings that has a few problems. First, I'm told at least one wing has a small leak. Second, and the reason I haven't even tried to verify the first - it appears that someone tried to fix that leak by sloshing the tank with Red-kote, which is an...

    .070" Mahogany Plywood Source

    Thanks guys, that's where I went wrong. Okoume puts me on the right track. Looks like the official stuff is 1.6mm overseas, so I'll look around for some here.

    .070" Mahogany Plywood Source

    That would be great! Kevin Kimball says 1/16" ply is actually 0.070", but I'd love to know if that's universally true. Is yours mahogany at each ply or is the core something different? Thanks!

    .070" Mahogany Plywood Source

    Hi all, I'm rebuilding a Cap 21, a French single-seat aerobatic bird which is entirely built from wood. I'm working on some repairs on the belly and have found that it's sheeted with what appears to be 0.070in-thick 3-ply mahogany plywood. All 3 plies appear to be mahogany - not a poplar core...

    PS-5C Pressure Carb and matching Lycoming 40595 fuel pump

    Weight is everything! 756 is a nice light S, especially these days when an 850lb S-1 is considered light. RJ

    PS-5C Pressure Carb and matching Lycoming 40595 fuel pump

    It's got a parallel-valve IO-360 (now with RSA-5 injection), EarthX battery, 40A alternator, starter, but currently no avionics. No canopy - open cockpit. Twisted Composites carbon prop. I hesitate to make claims until I can re-weigh it on more reliable scales, but the last measurement was under...

    Bendix PS-5C pressure carb and matching (mid-pressure) Lycoming 40595 fuel pump. Has the desirable red seals. These were in great working condition when removed from the O-360 on our S-1C for conversion to fuel injection. This setup allows fully inverted operation without fuel injection - great...
