    PSRU plans and parts sources for engines under 40 HP

    Hi fellow builders - Could we build a list of parts resources for building PSRU setups? The pulley's seem to be the most difficult to find short of paying top dollar for those being labeled for ultralight aircraft use.

    Do you have to prime in between parts?

    Hi everyone, I am looking for some wisdom, from experienced builders: When you assemble alloy wing parts (say 2024-T3 for instance), is it important that all parts which are permenantly afixed together receive primer between them. My example is the spar cap strips and spar C-section. Will...
