I doodled them to be used as facebook profile images, but they can work for pretty much any social media. So feel free to take them and use them. Stick them in newsletters or whatever. I want to share them 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Kaitlin MrozEverything is apart. Waiting to hear back from the case and crank having been sent out. If those come back as I'm hoping, everything else gets boxed and shipped.

Rich DuggerJust once. On my own O-300. Pay very close attention to the gears in the accessory case and take pictures. IIRC the manual is wrong concerning reassembly and the timing will be off. You'll be taking it apart and redoing it.

Tye HammerleLots of fun. At continentals website you can sign up, enter your serial and get access to manuals, parts catalogs. They've got their service bulletins online too. Important stuff is sometimes in unexpected places. One such is that current case threading procedure is in the approved sealants/lubricants SB.
