I believe the bearing p/n is a Torrington B55 that you can press out of and into the housing once it has been drilled off of your airbox.

We flew to see my son and his wife this weekend. 9500ft going, 8500ft coming back. Actually had tailwinds both ways. (What are the odds?) With up to 40mph tail winds coming back! Very turbulent below 8000ft yesterday, but luckily it went to glass at

Good afternoon! Took the plane out for a ride and brought along a recent 152 owner...he said he'd never flown a 172/180 hp and is now spoiled but really enjoyed the climb rate! We got some cheap ($ 3.62) avgas and put about 1.6 hrs. on the clock.

OK, my update. Phew!!! I was talking to another mechanic about which route to take with the engine. Without looking at the plane he thought it would be safe to fly home for him to look at, he suspected the oil was an evolving nose or crankcase sea

Living in the mountainous West, yes portable oxygen and pulse-ox are both useful and I own both. The pulse-ox lives in my flight bag. Longer flights at 8-9K is enough for my son to fall asleep in cruise, at least when the air is smooth. We overflew

Depending on where and how they are gonna mount the "ports" it's not that big of a job...we mounted mine just under the rear armrests in a mounting "cup". The receptacles came with a Sigtronics intercom kit so it was maybe 4 hrs.

Ran up to Williston (X60) today. Shot a practice landing then returned. Found smooth air at 5,500 ft dodging the smoke plumes from fires around the state. Enjoyed the cool cabin temperatures at altitude. Crummy weather is forecast for tomorrow. May

Thanks I did look there for it and didn’t see it. Saw a bunch of settings but not that. I just flew a cross country flight in pretty good turbulence all on AP did not notice any twitching of the yokes. I have close to 600 hours on my AP.
