  1. What do you like to use for labeling avionics wires? Thanks
  2. One fellow put these on. see his posts fevlok@mmhs.co.za CTSW Flight Design I bought the VG's only for landing problems on the CTSW. Coming from a Mooney 205 (1000h in 14 years) I really battle to land the CT smoothly (ctsw 2007) it tends to drop out under me. I manage a good landing only by being widely awake and just as it drops add power Research shows that light sport and especially the CT has a higher than average landing accidents (just in the CT defense no fatality's and is America's best seller in its class)So I added the VG's as said before on the wing about 8% above and stabilator 10% back under surface.Now I have the best greasers ever on all flap settings power-off landings 15, 30, 40 degrees of flapsStalls were done mainly to see how she behaves, and she cling to the air like you know how. Full back stick she only start mushing and lose height, nose just 'nods' Once at 40 degree flap, power burst, ball not totally centered, did drop a wing but gentle and easy to recoverSo far I am much more than pleasantly surprise with the effect of the VG's. Must confess was skeptic but the price was right and worth a try. Kiewiet South Africa
  3. Nice. Planning to head that way tomorrow or Tuesday.
  4. I live in South Carolina. Too much virus and too much heat right now. Would love to find a nice flying airport with camping where the weather is cooler. Appreciate any suggestions.
  5. I have a 05 Ctsw with the heavier main gear legs. Non-tundra . I put the larger tires on the mains. I rarely use a paved runway. My home airport 6j6 is grass and my 2 buddies have grass strips that are a bit bumpy. Does the CTLS gear make it worse?
  6. Looks like H4452 And H4451. Thanks guys.
  7. I did use rtv. I did get that pipe adjusted better this year so that may also help. Will see.
  8. Well I agree about the co in the cockpit. I have seen no indications on my monitor. This will be a test as the springs on the front of the 1/3 side didn’t last a year due to the Heat from the blow by. Will let you know in a year.
  9. I just wrapped one pipe due to leak at knuckle. 2 things I learned 1. If in SC in summer do it early morning. 2. Take the damn springs off.
  10. Was this a ct specific course or another? Thanks
  11. Indeed that is what I used when I put it back together.:)
  12. Could someone take a pic of the electrical connection to the landing light? Mine pulled loose and I need to reconnect.Thanks in advance
  13. Flollow up. After cleaning out the debris in the the fuel cutoff Valve I noticed something hanging down into the valve. I disassembled the valve and found teflon tape on the threads. A straggly piece of the tape was protruding into the the valve providing a slight obstruction upon which the debris could accumulate.
  14. I have the kit to remote mount the oil sender. Could someone post picks of the routing of the oil hose and placement of the new sender? Thanks Rich
  15. It could be possibly from the tank itself. Any ideas on how to analyze the debris? If it is coming from the wing tanks does that need to be addressed? Thanks
  16. debris in fuel cutoff valve. Mr. Funnel. My new best friend.
  17. Turns out the obstruction was at the fuel cutoff valve. Bypassed it,got it home. More info to follow.
  18. Thanks Tom for the offer sent you a PM last night I managed to get the fuel filter out. . It had a small amount of debris. Cleaned and replaced. Still very low fuel flow. Wondering if there is a way to detect if the obstruction is between the fuel filter and gascolator or between tanks and fuel filter. Appreciate advice on next steps as I am somewhat stranded at a small airport. Thanks
  19. Pic from left panel access sorry the pic rotated
  20. CTSW was running rough when in route climb so I landed at a nearby airport. There was some jump in the car bowls which I cleaned there was minimal debris in the gascolator which I removed and cleaned the screen. Tested fuel flow From both tanks and it is way down. Next step I expect is to check the fuel filter. I have located it but need some tips for removing and inspecting as I have not done that before. Appreciate any advice that comes my way. Thanks guys
  21. I got mine done. Works great. see pics . Put transponder antenna in belly behind elt. That required a little tweak as belly was too thick to thread but on antenna.
  22. My right wing green nav light quit working. Pulled it off and not getting current at the light with switch on. Left light working fine. Would appreciate tips on finding most likely location for lack of continuity. most efficient steps for troubleshooting? Thanks in advance. Rich
  23. I also am ordering the echouat and skyfx. Would also like to hear from anyone about their install. Thanks
  24. Ronnie will install for $5500. flysmla@flysmla.com. Rich
  25. Mississippi light sport is doing the big bore conversions for lockwood
