|Jack McKinney writes: "I got your Manual and prop hub drawings sometime in 96 or 97, and used the prop drawing for my engine. It was very good and does a good job. I also had the alternator mounted on the lower rt rear. I also used your idea for the starter, as it was much better than mine. I started out using a side draft motorcycle carb, but have since changed to an updraft from Revmaster, and am still working on the jetting, getting close. It is on a Baby Ace, built from M. I. drawings."|
"Read the fine article you had in To Fly magazine published by SAA, my #744. That should get more interest."
