Re: Shoulder harnesses for S15AC

Yes, you can do that, and Burl has an attachment fitting to anchor the shoulder harness. I like the kit that uses the metal buckle over the tang myself, but there are several shoulder harness kits around that would work. I do not have an inertia reel myself and I don't feel like I need it, but every...

Re: Float rigging on a Sedan.

Harrmonii: See the link below for a complete rigging drawing fro the EDO 89-200 floats on the sedan. EDO also sells the parts you might need. If that doesn't work for some reason, go the the main Kenmore Edo Floats page and drill down for the floats. http://www.kenmoreairharbor.com/uploads/9/6/8/3/9...

Brakes on the Right, any ideas?

My daughter will be old enough soon and has the desire to learn to fly. She still can't quite reach the rudder pedals, but that will change soon unless I stop feeding her. Has anyone worked out a right side brake pedal system? You could replicate the left side, but I don't have any pedals and they w...

Re: Any Sedan owners ever make their own jack pads?

Brian: I have a set of lifting eyes on the front spar bolts that live on the airplane. In a hanger with an overhead lift, they can be used to lift the whole airplane and are very stout. I got mine from Burl, but they are very similar to the ones the F. Attlee Dodge sells, except the bolt size is big...

Re: Sedan Wing Inspection Cover Installation

Hi Louis it was, I flew up there for my niece's graduation and then got trapped by weather in Windy Pass and had to fly home commercial. Took me a bit to get back to to get her. Even the GVEA helicopter had to put down a Rose's in Healy for lunch due to weather.

Re: Sedan Wing Inspection Cover Installation

I have also been cutting holes, and found some mouse related evidence. Nothing quite as spectacular, but semi chewed petrified shocks of wheat had been stored in the leading edge. I suspect that the mouse may have been from Wichita State....... Not much wheat in Alaska, so it has either been there a...

Re: Landing gear Bungee cords

I think I can provide a reason that the bungee part number might have changed, or maybe just confuse things more. If you look at service helps and hints number 50 on Burl's site you can see that at the same serial number that the bungee part number changed, the reinforcement was added to the gear. I...

Re: Sedan Oil Consumption

Thanks all, and a couple of people that I talked to off line. I think all is normal, if I add more than 6 quarts, the rest goes out the breather. It seems to be the consensus. I guess I would rather have it blowing out the breather than leaving some other ways it could, but it still bugs me a bit th...

Re: What's Everybody Using for an Alternator?

How is the B&C working out? I had to get a jump start at the Palmer Pancake breakfast the other day flying Young Eagles because with a lot of airplanes in the air, I was flying at low power with both the landing and taxi lights on and drained the battery. (Embarasing when you are giving kids their f...

Sedan Oil Consumption

Over the last week, I have been flying a lot over some fairly inhospitable terrain and have been worrying about oil consumption. I think I am concerned about nothing, but wanted a little input from others about what you are seeing. (I may be just over thinking it when you look down and don't see any...

I think that airplane also had a decal where some other airplanes might have put flaps that said "Flaps are for (small cute cat synonym)" :)
