Re: Sedan Mechanic Needed

Mike Hoag is the go-to Sedan man and he's in southern lower Michigan.

Welcome and glad to see another L-16 being brought back to life. Bill Chappel has worked on one or two or more in the past and frequents this forum. I'm sure he can share some wisdom as your project evolves.

Re: 7BCM-173

Paul, I asked him to pass along the new buyer or invite him to join our group. Stan said he thought the buyer was going Canada ultra-light user maintenance and didn't think he'd be joining us. I have a few people in Canada who will still speak to me :lol: and maybe we can keep tabs on it.

Re: Carb needle 390077

I am getting old and the memory fades back and forth, but I thought the neopreme needle had been abandonded and were no longer produced.
