Agreed...The ACF50 is just highlighting problems that are already there. I dont like LPS3 for this purpose as it forms this thick sticky layer that attracts all kinds of dirt and over time it makes one hell of a mess....

If the rivet is loose, it isn't from Corrosion X or ACF 50.

I have a IO-370 on order from Stoots. Here are the facts on increasing horsepower to an airframe originally certified with a lessor engine. The performance increase is going to be in takeoff, climb, and go around capabilities. There might be a bit

Good question Nfly. I am wondering, have not yet researched, if one can replace the old bulb with an LED bulb? I am at the point not to change hardware or fairings, rather would like to insert LED bulbs into existing sockets.

This week I plan to pick up my Cessna 172L with a recently installed Power Flow and Electroair magneto. Looking forward to see the improvements. Had the prop checked and if Static RPM will be over 2350 will probably and another degree or two of pitch

My biggest complaint with my hangar is that it's not insulated, so it's very cold in winter and hot in summer. But that's really the only problem... it's 3000 square foot of practical space, with a bathroom, an airplane, my brother's boat, and my tra

Well, the cowling goes back on today and maybe a little flying. Turns out the oil was just a normal continental drip but the main fluid was the nose wheel strut. Cold weather, seals shrunk and now need to be replaced, refilled and re-aired. Much less

I have three hangers each at a different airfield. Would love one big one and would especially love one with doors on both sides, but not in the cards at my age anymore. Bob

Good topic and a lot of good ideas in here. As for me, I finally have both of my airplanes in a hangar after living out west for the last couple of years. However, my airplanes are at two separate airfields... I'm hoping to resolve that but the ear

Check the carb split gasket for stains and see if there is movement. There is a SB on this.

I used LPS-3 long before there was anything else. What I can add is that I do see Corrosion X wicking out around rivets. I have no idea if the rivets are lose at this point though.

Its a cessna 172 lycomb o-320dtg. We cleaned the fuel sump about 130 hours before this happened. Could it take that long for the little burp to happen?

First I have heard of those products CAUSING loose rivets. I speculate the smoking rivets that show up had aluminum dust around 'em before any anti corrosion material was applied. The theCor X or ACF 50 gust liberated the dust.

Anybody seen any studies or have personal experience with fogging with either ACF 50 or Corrosion X causing riveted joints to loosen? I've used both for years and think they do a great job of preventing corrosion but I recently had a mechanic tell m
