100 Hour/Annual In Progress

The Decathlon is undergoing an inspection before the busy flying year takes off. A few items as a result of the past year's acro that need some attention include replacing engine Lord mounts and resetting and securing some rib nails. Neither are too major, but require some time consuming labor to fix. It's my hope that I'll finish the work this weekend (4/9 & 4/10). I elected to replace the original gascolator with a Steve's Aircraft gascolator. These units are well designed and manufactured, allowing easy service and daily fuel inspection. The replacement was preemptive as the original gascolator is no longer supported by American Champion. The airplane's opened up, waiting for some mirror and flashlight inspection and if you have a chance, come out and pear into the bowels of a '78 8KCAB.

Blue Skies!
