    I have the tanks empty and am looking for a scope to take a peek.  Been using only 100LL of my home field.  Never had any issue with my home fuel so I suspect its something settled in the tanks or header tank is more likely the culprit.  The wing tanks look perfect from what I can see

    fuel SYSTEM contamination
    Has anyone seen this in their gascolator before?  I don't think its from fuel contamination.  The tanks (two wing tanks and poly header tank) sat built and empty for several years.   All the lines are new.  Really caramelized on.  Took a scrub with brake cleaner to get it off.  It also gummed up the header tank bottom drain / check valve

    Checking to see if anyone has a set of the original douglas 8" wheels, possibly with the welded bolt bungs.  Looking to set up a second set of wheel / tires for a tire penetrating ski setup

    My build is complete and My inspection for the KF III is in 2 1/2 weeks. Looking for anyone in southern Wisconsin  with  a similar avid or KF to give me a flight or two to get a feel for flight characteristics. The first flight is getting close and it’s a bit more “real” now
