    Barnstormers..another catalina project?
    For the folks up north, this looks interesting- two wing tanks, not enough info on the rest of the project.  I already have an inquiry in on the tailwheel installation. From the bones, it's a catalina, not an amphibian, If someone contacts/buys the project, I'd be interested in the serial number- I've tried to keep track of the cats.

    Yanked the head off and found no cracks. Will replace the gaskets and give it another try.

    Going to pull the cylinder today to verify it. But with the luck I've been having  with this project?  Buying a used cylinder would be risky and it could be the head cracked which might be repaired. We'll see.

    I think I would keep that bigger rudder and just change the throw on it so it travels less.

    Left.   I went about 4 degrees on my Yamaha RX1 and am glad I did.  But it is swinging an 80" prop so maybe a person would go more like 2 or 3 degrees with a smaller prop?

    Don't despair Allen.  Maybe it's just a drip of oil from a spill or something.  Think positive!   JImChuk

    If I remember, I can measure the one on my MK IV tomorrow.  I do have an earlier squared off rudder like what was used before the MK IV rounded rudders.  Just remembered, I had some pics on my phone.  The rudder is 18" at the widest from front to back on my MK IV.  JImChuk

    Just checked the price for a new cylinder, almost $1000. Beginning to rethink the whole process. Maybe get back to trout fishing!

    stock round rudder
    Would someone here be able to give me the dimension of the round rudder, mainly interested in the width. I have a stretched fuselage with an over sized rudder and it's to much rudder authority. I'm thinking of changing the rudder back to stock. The previous owner was going to put the plane on floats so the rudder was enlarged. Thanks, Neil

    engine canted, left or right
    If the engine turns counter clockwise looking from the pilots seat what direction should the engine be canted left or right. Thanks, Neil

    I would think in Alaska that there would be a bunch of snowmobile shops that could do it. A 582 is derivative of a the engine in the ski-doo 580.

    I took mine to Anchorage Drag Bike, on 3rd Ave. They did good work. I ordered OEM bearings from Spruce, which took maybe a few months to get here, but the work that they did was done quickly.

    So much for the trying adventure. Its become a love/hate issue. Found a small oil drop underneath one of the cylinders after running it and most likely going to be a cracked head. Could have been that way from the factory or somebody with no torque wrench. Now to pull the cylinder and find out.  Doesn't seem like I'll ever get to fly this thing!

  23. Buckchop added a post in a topic Why is this here??   

    Well in one of my earlier posts i showed pic of the top of a mine drift that is 100’ underground i found when i got down on bedrock,  so we pulled all the timbers out and sluiced the gravel around it and the rest of the cut, did very well!! Thought id post a few pic of pulling the drift apart with my son Carter and my best friend John.

    It doesn't sound right to me.  The mod is supposed to lessen adverse yaw by giving more up aileron than down.

    I think i know a guy here where i get my motors done. He does 2stroke cranks all the time, he just finished one for my son on a ktm dirtbike. Ill ask him and let u know.  
    I also have a crank from a blue582 i need rebuilt, got a motor from a guy in a trade and the crank has all the oilpump drive teeth peeled off and needs new bearings.
