You used the wrong alternator kit, mine has the plane power alternator kit. Seems to me it took a different Pulley and I've got about three quarters of an inch clearance between the pulley on the alternator and the firewall.

The wings for starters are much different with the SM kit and extensions, not to mention the "angle of incidence" given we have them at neutral now. Not certain whats going to happen there. Hoping that we dont need to change much. May end up with a wing heavy, who knows. All the builders out there, any ideas? Its going to be fun and I will have several rags in my palms soaking up the sweat I am certain...

No fly today. Your good to go for awhile and I am betting your the winner given the next pick is a couple weeks out. Price is right remember? Your now holding 1 dollar. Someone correct me if I am wrong. Have not seen bob barker in a very longtime.
So once again you got her home without a ferry permit eh? Is this a "keeping up with Lonnie" thing?
Glad you're OK and still have some feelings for the plane even after she snarled at you and scratched you right on the wallet. It's hard to think of them as "equipment". Hope you know somebody who has 180 firewalls stacked up like tupperware. Coming apart is a bit easier than going back together when you don't want any wrinkles and you don't want to box up anything that should have been attended to. It ain't Legos. Legos are hard.
You sound motivated, but my brother's Luscombe is still in pieces after several years, mostly because he wants it perfect. Best of luck and I'm guessing:

I'll take my fleece to the dry cleaners next week. I think I've got plenty of time.
