Andi and I took a nice little daytrip up to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Saturday. Highly recommended - in the very pretty and relatively untouched UP of Michigan and just 2 RV-9A hours by air from Minne!
If you want to go - the grass strip in Munising is in great shape and the county bus will take you into town for $5/person.
We took a 2.5 hr cruise to see the lake shore - we'll come back to camp and hike.
The rocks were spectacular........
The cruisers were happy.......
The trip home took us just shy of 2450 on the Hobbs, so you know what time it is........ Oil, filter, compression and borescope!
Dropped the oil, and the filter and screen had the usual carbon chunks - nothing sparkly - giddy up. Compressions showed 78s all around. The plugs had a nice tan color (including #2, that can sometimes be a bit oily). Oil pressure is still right where we set it, and Oil consumption was 1.25 qt this past 50 hours. She seems to be hanging in there very nicely.
Here is what you came for ......naked valve pics:
Image was corrupted by idiot with camera(it looked just fine tho!)
Same setup as always:
- Dual EI
- Almost all Mogas now
- LOP all except takeoff
The camera used is a $10 (prob $15 now) USB 7.5 mm drain cam from Tomtop. I use safety wire to guide it.
