    Throttle Lever Friction Adjustment

    There have been several discussions on this subject. I can't seem to post a link, but if you go to: CT General Discussion Random Thoughts Throttle Friction Block This has a date of May 21, 2016. Included are some photos so you can see what is needed. One of the advantages of using a Belleville (beveled) washer is it maintains constant pressure regardless of the temperature. You can always try just tightening as Roger suggests and then use a Belleville washer if it is still affected by changing seasons.

    Question on Matco nose wheel

    I see Desser has that tire listed: https://www.desser.com/Aircraft-Tires-and-Tubes/400-6-8-Ply-AERO-CLASSIC-PREMIUM-TT-TUBELESS-14X4-AERO-CLASS-DTR1285.asp Looks like a heavy duty tire. Will be interesting to hear your impressions after you have flown it a few hours.

    Question on Matco nose wheel

    They say it should be used with spacer WHLA23SL, but doesn't say (or show) where this is used.

    Try the link below, but if it doesn't work go to Matco and search for NW40CT. www.matcomfg.com/NW40CTINSTALL-idv-3922-19.html

    New CT In The Skies Over CT (as in Connecticut)

    Well, If I had a vote I would not have an anonymous option on this forum. History has indicated it can lead to paths that are not productive. My 2 cents worth.

    I had not realized there was a vote, but since I have enjoyed reading about your journey, you now have a couple of up votes.

    New Aero Classis 4.00-6 Tire @ Desser

    The one I find for that size has a SKU 400-6 6ply and says it is a 4 Wide-Rib design. Do you have a SKU for the 2 Rib version?

    New Floats from MS

    That Aviation Consumer article that Roger posted is a real eyeopener. There should be lessons for everyone in there. Thanks for sharing.

    Do I understand you correctly? You fitted a SS washer to the inside and outside of the wheel pant? Did you use something else to fill the gap where the rubber washer used to be? Did you stay with a 6X20mm bolt, or use something else?

    Stratux RXWX Mount

    FlyingMonkey said: "to mount to the top two screws of the compass mount." If one had a LS, you have the option of putting this on the hat shelf. On the SW, real estate is even more limited. I thought this was a clever solution to the problem that just never occurred to me. I guess that shows how often I look at my compass!
