C170B Pilot sorry I didn't see your post. There is something weird in the Event section where the creator of the event can't see posts if logged in. I keep forgetting to check here while logged out. In answer to your question, no, you don't need to reserve a camping spot. See ya there. :-)
Hey all, I'm looking for a Lycoming O-540 core to use as the basis for my rebuild. Specifically, the B4B5 or close. Been poring over the salvage websites, Ebay, etc. The pickings are slim. I figure it's...

I plan to install a 912is or uls. All depends how much I get out of the mustang and if I can actually write a check for the firewall forward without a melt down...! :)
I'm not sure how to contact the administrator, but you can add me to the list of Idaho CFIs. I have over 1000 hours in Maules, flying in Alaska and Idaho. (Including the Valdez competition in 2011). I finally got around to getting the airplane CFI added on this week.

I thought I would document My IO470 Engine Build.
Trying to take pics to document my progress.
I think I have finally collected enough parts to get it done! :D
Crank case half.
