Detailed Description

This airplane has had many upgrades to make it sustainable for many hours to come. Some of these NEW items include Garmin G5 PFD w/ standby battery, Garmin Com radio, Concord battery, carburetor, heat shrouds for cabin & carb heat, scat tubing, exhaust flange gaskets, Grove Hydraulic brake STC, blue ignition harness, Tempest Spark plugs, Matco tail wheel, Tempest oil filter kit and new landing gear struts. The entire landing gear system was replace in 2020 due to slightly offset tubes from previous owner having snow skis installed. Both gear were slightly twisted (steer right) due to torsion on the main tubes. This was mainly noticeable durning taxi which is now fixed. We decided to replace everything including hardware, shackle, arms and jack struts. The aircraft is currently being hangared at 1k1.
