No you guys got it all wrong... I was just smarmiliciously pointing out that the airplane would look a whole lot better with appropriately proportioned wheels and tires on it. Ain't no major personal or theoretical disagreement going on here....I just want to see the fight.

I still have all of my prints saved in my computer. The reason I don't advertise the prints anymore is that my plotter died and I can't print them out full size anymore.Kyle, I worked with Don back in the 90s helping clean up his drawings to what you get today. Don would probably recommend the use of a VW with the Maximizer. He has stopped advertising now but when he did he always used a picture of the Geide Headwind which had a Maximizer as he felt it best represented the Headwind.
Don is a class act guy. I managed to pull some strings and got him a tour at LM when the F22 line was running. He later sent me copies of the Headwind, Maximizer and his Foo Fighter.
So are you really building a Headwind??
Heavy duty spoked bicycle wheels maybe 12-16” would work and look period correct, actually better for any kind of grass field operation.
Thank you!1200 cam ? Stock cams on the 1200 cc, 40hp,-- 1300 cc, 50Hp--- 1600cc, 60 HP are all the same. Different cam gear on the same came after 1971, I believe. Stock cam is hard to beat for low RPM torque.
Going from a 60" dia to a 62" dia x 26" pitch is a bit much for the 1835cc engine. I wouldn't go more than the 24", maybe a 22" if you wasn't concerned much about the speed. Could try the 62" dia x 26" and if it was to much load on the engine , you would be able to reduce the dia a littl at a time to suit.
I have cruised my 1835 cc engine at 2500 rpm with a cruise speed of about 65 mph, but couldn't get the oil temp up over about 160 F . Doing that on a cross country flight trying to say back with 2 Piets with A-65's. Summer day.
Fuel burn would be about 2.5 gph. Just a guess.
