Needle bearing seals

The flap hardware I got from Larry and the Compair flap hardware use J1812 and J1616 needle bearings but there is no seal. Granted these bearings dont have a lot of rotational load on them but they need to be lubricated. Anyone have info on what lube? Seems to me sitting in a hot hangar for days the...

Prop overhaul

Years ago as I was gathering engine, gov, prop, etc I got a 3 blade McCauley prop from Larry Olsen. It came off a 182 - B3D32C407/82NDA. Larry did not send me the prop log book. He was going to, I did not push him as I was not gonna install any time soon and then Larry got killed. The log book is no...

No SNF for me this year

Another year comes that I will not be able to get to Sun-N-Fun. If any of you are going please let us know of any Express that show up. I'm also wondering if Composite Aircraft is selling any kits. Seems the web site is pretty dormant and I dont seem them listed as a vendor for SNF. Any of you going...

Re: Rib J

If you still have not closed your wing I would ask if you could check your spar for me. When sitting in the saddles is the spar cap level fore/aft from end to end? I thought it should be, level the length and also fore/aft. My outboard saddles seem a little off. If I level the bottom of the saddle a...

Re: CT Electric flap

Attachment upload does not seem to be working. I'll try and send you a message with the drawing. If that does not work send me a message with your email address and I'll send you the pdf. I scanned the section on the flaps. This is from the old manual that uses the teflon bearings but you can get th...

Re: CT Electric flap

Do you have all the hardware? You should have inboard and outboard tubes for both sides and a center section tube with a arm for connection to the flap motor. I think you could also retrofit the 2000 model set up in a CT wing but I have not tried. I got my flap parts from Larry Olsen. There are the ...
