Anyone know the dihedral angle on the 172D? I'm going to use the old fuel tank I just took out and create a fuel dipstick. I think that, to accurately do it, I need to have the tank at the correct angle too.

I've added one or two split lock rings from cowl fasteners to the outside with success.

Good morning all....still nighttime here. Easy day so far today. Worked late doing paperwork so it wouldn't drag into today. Viper, I just had to open it twice for satisfaction not to hear the "klunk" that kept getting louder. Gone now...

You mean wrap a tie wrap around the groove to make sure it can't be pushed up and accidentally opened up? No I don't but it sounds like a good idea.

Thanks Challenger...I use a clearish colored tube I got from Lowes so I could see the oil draining out. Originally I tried an old water hose and it didnt fit so bought this one, but it is just slightly too big. I like that I can see the oil coming

Leaving Florida, aim for Chattanooga (avoid having to overfly the N Georgia mountains. From KLOU, I'd head for Elkins and cross the mountains there. Not very high - and, of course, you get to stop at W99 (Grant County) for cheap gas.
