I'm having a prepurchase inspection done on an experimental airplane this coming week. I'm not even going to tell y'all what I'm looking at except to say it's the least likely Back Country airplane you might think of.......but it will get in and out of any place piperpainter can go. We all love surprises....even if it makes me look foolish there won't be any news in that. The third wheel is aft of course. It's been in a hanger and basically not flown for at least fifteen years. The engine is a real gamble....I may have it torn down and inspected IRAN with a new cam and followers just to have half a chance of success. Or I may just go the OregonMaule way and see if it eats it's own lunch.
This thing is really pretty cheap. $10K
If the prepurchase goes reasonably well I'll get it annualed at the same time.
So it's got rotten 6:00 X 6's on it, and a Scott tailwheel. The first mod will be some bigger tyres.
What's a good/cheap 8:50 tire for under 1750 lbs gross?
