Re: Back trail

There was water in the back trail last Friday all the way to Turtle camp. I found out that if the first part of the trail has water when you leave Flourence then it is good the rest of the way.

Re: Shutdown proceedure for IO520

I just wanted to bring this thread to a close by reporting that switching to 93 octane I have solved my problem. I have run at least 8 tanks of 93 octane through my motor and is ready to stop now when I am! Thanks for the expertise and input from this site to solving my problem!

Re: Shutdown proceedure for IO520

Thank you for all the input. My first move will be to try 93 octane and if that doesn't fix the problem then I'll try avgas. I appreciate all the help!

Re: Shutdown proceedure for IO520

First off, thanks for the response! To clarify, it is fuel injected so no carb and I do have an electric fuel solenoid in the fuel line before the manifold. I do use 87 octane pump gas and have 8.5 pistons. The top end is fresh with new pistons/rings/valves and 53 hours on the clock. The injection s...

Shutdown proceedure for IO520

I would like to know what the proper shut down procedure is for a fuel injected Continental 520. I have a switch for the fuel pump, fuel cut-off and a switch for each mag. I have been told that once I am running, I can turn off the fuel pump so if I remember, I do. The problem I am having is that is...

Re: Rudders fluttering

I just read through some old post about trim tabs and they were talking about the setup of the rudders with the pivot points 6" or less from the front so it seems that might not be your problem. I had to install trim tabs on mine because it wanted to pull to the left all the time. Once they wer...

Re: Fuel tank vent question

I'm not sure about the pressure tanks and surges, but my Dad was a pilot and he always said that if you keep the tank tip-top full, there isn't any air in there to get hot and cold to condense and add water to the gas. That is the theory I follow and always fill my tank up on the way home after goin...

I found a flashlight

I went out to the Oak Trees today and found a nice flashlight. It was near the water in the mud and it looked like it was run over. It now resides in the arms of a short Palm tree facing the water waiting for its rightful owner to claim it.
