Directions: The airfield is near the hamlet of Big Bay on Hwy 1, which runs from Owen Sound to Wiarton along the coast of Georgian Bay. Take Coles Sideroad south from Hwy 1 about 1 km and you will see the strip, home and hangers on the east side of the road.

That sure looks like a good time to me. Hey Russell I got one my pioneers running but it won't stay running. Electric fuel pump is surprisingly loud , I just don't see any travel the summer, I'm afraid I'm still in shock and awe of five dollars a gallon for diesel. :angry:

As you know those Pioneers are diaphram carbs so they're designed to suck. Suck fuel I mean, they are good carbs. Anyhow, any positive pressure put on the fuel supply can flood the engine. They aren't designed for positive supply pressure. Try that.
