    Didnt some of the earlie 912 have fuel pump problems? And there was a service bulletin to replace it with one with a return line so u dont get vaporlock, Jonas Marcinco had that happens to him he has a utube video on that happening to him and he crashed on takeoff, May check that also.

    Any pic of it by chance? This old gold miner may have some ideas, and i have a shitton of rubber isolater bushings (probably a 5gallon bucket full) off of stationary generator sets and electric motors, i dont throw anything away,  mayb able to match something up so u can get some new.
    if u end up making some id make them out of bulldog rubber, ive used it manytimes to make mounts, 1" thick comes in a sheet 3' wide, but u may find a scrap piece, a rubber/hose supplie shop (place here is called Alaska Rubber&Rigging) may have it, its easy to work with, drilling holes cutting ect, and inperviouse to fuel/oils and stiff but soft, i know that sounds funny. Hahahahahahahaaaa

  9. Buckchop added a post in a topic Going crazy   

    It is surprising how some people react. Im sure there is reason to b worried, its even going on here in Ak.  Ive cn MRE's that use to sell on CL for $40-60 per case now going for $100-125 per case, my wife is a cake decorator at Safeway, she says its crazy in there people yelling at eachother and buying up every roll of TP, Paper Towels, Hand Sanitizer, Cold Meds, Bottled Water. 
    I told her well least u can tell the difference between a real Alaskan, and the Transplanted ones.
    Real ones already stock pile all that stuff,  remember if the Canadian Border totally shuts down no Trucks get thro with anything 
    Not sure how true this is, but i heard they shutdown state borders in the south, Dad says he thinks Louisianna(where my folks at) is already shutdown. Anyone know for sure?

  11. Buckchop added a post in a topic Original Builder   

    Thats cool i just did the same a few weeks ago on my model 1, but reason was cause mine has changed hands a few times with a couple bill of sales, but no one had done the registration paperwork, so its still in original builders name from 1988.  He said he didnt realize nobody did paperwork and would b MORE than happy to sign the paper, just need to send it to him now.  Also he told me was one of the best/funnest times of his life building it and will b back in Ak this summer, and will bring me a few old pic, and of course i offered him a ride in the plane.

    Well an old buddy of mine gave me this a yr ago, now that plane is done i think its time to customize my helmet.  (It already matched the plane color, thats one big reason he said it needed to belong to me) and my Daughter just started up a s custom sticker business from her home so had her make me up some stuff for it. 
    Stay tuned for the finish helmet.  Do u guys where one?

    It was on my model 1,#0038 at one time b4 i bought it, but it and the plane had got bent up in a windstorm while plane was tied down.  I still have the recipt for it in the paperwork, id have a date, price and part number for it if that helps any.  And i have a crappy pic of the gear on the plane b4 i bought it.
