Welcome

Hi Pat and family,
Welcome to the forum. If you can't find it here for an A4, I don't think you can find it anywhere in our galaxy. Lots and lots of expertise, and Don/Brenda/Ken are the very,...

Hi,
I think we may have briefly covered this in a forum discussion on propellers, but I need a little more detail on this. My recollection is that you have a three blade prop on your A35. What did...

The interconnection of the rigging is really bonding, not grounding and is intended for a different purpose although it could serve as a ground. The common ground, should include...

I'm confused!

If you take Don's suggestion and run the bigger (heavier) wire without the ammeter, can you just eliminate the two wires that were there? Makes sense to me, but these electrons could make me nuts :)

Sooty plugs

Hi Moby,

I think that Don hit the nail on the head...a combination of ethanol and MBTE is not conducive to an engine that doesn't run pretty hot. Adding the Stabil may just further complicate the...
