Good afternoon Peanut, I have a 1961 B model and my fuel caps do the same thing. It should be ok as long as the cap are tight, but I would fly around the pattern a couple times and then check them again. If needed an A/P can rotate the filler neck,

I ordered $32,000 worth of the PMA AD gas caps. One tightened 90 degrees off and the other about 20 off. Is this an issue besides looking stupid?

Jon... those are some hot temperatures! Usually a little cooler here than Phoenix but it's 108F now and should be 113F this afternoon... I'm planning on an early flight tomorrow as the heat is supposed to be more intense here tomorrow.

That sounds pretty nice C420Sailor, to have your plane inspected and maintained every 100 hours. Does it cost you anything?

Hi All I will be replacing my upper door hinges with my A&P using new $$ McFarlane hinges. Has anybody here done this and able to provide guidance on the complexity? Are the rivets easily accessible? Any advice appreciated! Philip

Was going to fly, but the plane is down for 100hr (I do a leaseback). Normally Id just take it anyway as the owner can fly beyond 100hrs, but they already started tearing into it. Might fly up to CHO for dinner on tuesday if the weather permits.

It will be 99 here, 88% humidity. Not pleasant. Arizona has a dry heat. Just like a blast furnace has.

To be quite honest along my years as owner and pilot, I have run Champion and Tempest in my Citabria, Decathlon, couple of 170 and 180, Pitts and my 172, I do not see any difference.

Thanks for the reply's. My plane now has an oil filter. I was worried it might be showing a little low. I will try and get it moved.

Good Friday night... a hot one today in Vegas at 111F. I have no doubt it was hotter in the Valley of the Sun. Jon, hope you're able to get some monsoonal moisture to cool things down soon.

Thanks for the replies. I fly mine weekly so I dont see battery drain being a big issue. Yes, I do believe youre still supposed to have a panel mounted clock for IFR. Ill hook it back up and see how it goes.
