    replied to Bending the axles allowed?
    If you Gyro is a single place then the 5/8" axle will be OK,if its a 2 placer the I would if possible go to the 3/4" axle.

    experience with the RAF bending the 5/8" axle and going to a 3/4" axle has proven to be best.

    But if your machine is light the the...

    (Vance just can't help doing the same two things, over and over again: falsely imputing some[/COLOR] "lack of understanding" [COLOR=#006400]of mine, and then snidely berating me for it.
    Perhaps he actually doesn't realize that he does it, but I'm confident in RWF reader discernment.)...

    Vance your right about the narrow geared RAF in a strong wind,even in normal winds (10 to 15) I am always on guard for

    tip overs,it takes very little to get one wheel off the ground and it usually happens right when you come to a complete stop,

    the rotor speed and lift is still...

    He says he is discussing the finer points with you,looks to me like he is trying to let everyone know

    that he is vastly superior to one and all,and is the final answer to all things Gyro.

    He also is constantly referencing a CFI who has 4000 hrs,I know an CFI who has more than...

  • When I overhauled my engine some 650 hrs ago I replaced the oil pump and found nothing wrong with it,The is the first time I

    have heard of that issue but now is the time to check it.I would just replace the pump with a new one and then take the old pump

    apart and see what its...

  • Even if you can remove the bolt from the crank pulley the pulley wont slide far enough forward to come off,you don't need to remove the pulley to replace the timing belt.

    as for the oil pump it usually is replaced when the engine is overhauled,I have never heard of one going bad.

    Well here we go again he left out a important part of the story so it would fit his

    explanation better and sound like Vance did not know what he was doing.

    The part left out was that after the vertical descent and getting close to the runway power was added to compensate for...

    Vance,thanks for catching the fixwing thinking of our safety expert with regards to the gust factors that do not apply to Gyros,if

    he lands like that just about all of the runway will be used to land,if he even is able to land

    Its important to keep correcting his wrong thinking,...

  • I replace my timing belt without removing the engine but I have made a vertical cut in the cover behind the crank pulley so that

    the two pieces can be removed from either side without taking the crank pully off which required removing the engine to do so.

    I believe the engine...

    Vance probably has more hours flying in conditions like that than most of us have in total hours.

    His decision to fly that day was based on current conditions that were within his parameters, and his experience to fly safely in high winds

    which came up,and he handled the high...

    replied to Extracting Ethanol
    The only real downside of ethanol is that it will absorb moisture,but in the NM desert where I live that's not an issue.

    And of course it burns a little cooler than gasoline.(A little less bang for the buck).

    Ethanol is an octane booster I have been running 91 octane 10% alcohol for more than 800 hrs in my turbo charged 2.5 Subaru

    with great results,I tried to run av-gas but it took out my valves in about 100 hrs.

    Also running a high octane fuel in a low compression engine is a...

  • Good article Chris,I think most people realize who the whiners are and know they will never be happy, we have one

    of those here and everybody knows he is just a very unhappy miserable person and overlook his whinning,as much as possible.

    At the end of 33 in Socorro NM we have unusual terrain that will cause a wind shear, even with very little wind reported.

    And at the other end on15 we have a permanent down draft because of an arroyo.

    I normally do midfield takeoffs and turn out before the runway ends to avoid...

    Chuck I still don't know why my sportcoptor blades on my RAF had to have a spring that had 30-40 foot pounds of pressure

    on the rear of the rotorhead to fly level.

    When I first flew the sportcoptor blades I almost crashed because of the enormous amount of back pressure required...
