Re: 7AC-CCM PRIMER

The fact the the engine was brought to a engine place and they ran it on their dyno lets me to believe that the issue
is the rest of the issues on the the plane.

When i lean it out the problem goes away.

ice almost off our lake 4 day away from float time.

Re: 115 hp Lycoming 7ccm floats wheels and ski's (redone)

My plane is the same , good useful load. I know the Citabria may have the same but like I said, I would like the bigger floats because some of the lakes I go don't have boats. So I fish from the floats. I'm 240 so,I have to take care or I fly home with wet feet plus if you have a passenger. Just fly...

leading egde

Hi folks -- redoing my wings right now and a very experience mechanic told me to run the leading edge 4" past the spar for increased cruise speed. Anyone tried this? Anyone think it would help as well?
