Re: Tube bending dies - center line radius?

KRS62 I 'm thinking that most cages might be made with plywood patterns. Although CNC bending and weld fixtures would be handy for hi volume. More or less a shade tree mechanic and a 6 pack job.

Re: Alaskan hunting Mini

Hey swamper 2. Do you mean like a shroud around the muffler or head with forced air back into the cab? I thought about it, as it is common with ultralights. But they have really nice straight lines to get inside the cab. I thought it would be a lot of work to put a scoop behind the prop, turn it ar...

Re: Thrust Performance Test and Measurement

For comparison and calibration of the trailer configuration, I also plan to fab up an inline linkage using the same load cell (and steel) that can be tied into straps/chains and used to measure tension with my boat floating in my pond and pulling against a strap around a good pine. I would suggest u...

Re: Need opinions on prop choices

Use this product for your intake front and rear areas. It is not likely to push out if your crankcase pressures are high which is a common issue in high output engines.

Re: stinger gearbox noise and movement

if they would have had a soft drive on from the beginning you would not have had this problem. Also when the gear box is assembled there is a pre load on the gears and if not done right your wasting money.
