If you want to see a reason for serious "bingengineering", check out the latest adaptor posted up on MM's build diary . . . . . .

FB   some how I feel embarrassed with my struggles with the LS mid-plate

well my ac got here nearly 48 hours later from when it was supposed to--- the sleeve and chassis  was damaged but they gave me the option of a new one or a 20% discount---well 45 minutes later of rookie fender beater we have a mounting sleeve that needs 4 spot welds and we should be able to install it. Suppose to go back to hot today and we test ran it on the bench yesterday it still blow cold---hopefully by 10:00 we will have it running

Sum and I had a good 1/2 day then went to see Al E.'s  Lakester--all was out but we saw the lakester---block sitting in the frame---the new cam came a week late they got it Wed. afternoon--they are headed to El M this weekend for another try on the D/FL. +   Good Luck guys on that 226. +!!!!!!!!!!

Sumner has been in the shop everyday working on the data logging and instruments--- working on my poor weak mind helping me work with grasping it---mind you I didn't say understanding it all

---Andy has been over for a couple of hours several nights we are getting every thing back in--modifying what we wanted to or had to ---John came over for  2 days--

Francis is coming back up today --we should be able to fire today so Sum can calibrate the innovate stuff and show me how to pull the chip and read the data!!

If all goes well we try to have the canopy so Francis can take it back and install the Lexan

Well we are waiting on a v belt from HF for my band saw, so that we can get about modifying the old headers off RATICAL to fit MS LIBERTY.

Andy and I finished the cockpit rewire for the gauges that Sum and I moved last week.

Should not take long to trace everything and confirm in the back after the new battery I did 2 weeks ago

Are those fancy hinges for the canopy or to get your feet in and out?
