Re: OSHKosh Beer Tasting

Something fruity for Chad? :) and now the darker the better! :wink: :wink: You mean like coffee/chocolate stouts? I have been pounding them on a semi regular basis. I still like The Belgian style Tripel beers. Another favorite is the bourbon barrel aged strong ales such as Allagash Curieaux and Fou...

Re: RIP Co-Pilot Wyatt

Sorry to hear about your dog Wyatt. Kind of reminds me of my dog Pookie that I bought back from Kuwait with me a few years ago. colors similar, same floppy ears. The vets tell me she is a Saluki/mixed, I think with either Border Collie or Aussie Shepherd. For the longest time, was thinking Border Co...

Have you been here yet?

My preferences are generally going to be a black or dark background with white font. A font size setting is a big plus.

you plan on polishing the aluminum or flying like that until you get it painted?

where I work, all the planes wing/vertical/horizontal stabs, and the engine nose cowling leading edges are all bare/buffed aluminum. when a customer has them compounded/buffed out they look really sharp.

one way we did it was to torque the head side if it couldnt be done on the nut side. we would go to the high side. example, if the torque was 95 to 110 inch/pounds we would go to 110 and then cotter pin it. all our stuff pretty much is cotter pinned.

Re: main gear

Are they symmetrical? I assume not since vans has different part numbers for each. Thankd Cant tell you for the RV world, but usually parts that are similar but for different sides are usually numbered odd and even numbers. Example: 123ABC456-11 left hand 123ABC456-12 right hand maybe that helps so...
