Perfect night for flight...
vistors coming to Bob Newhart's Hotel
rain tomorrow - UG

working on hanger and trailer all day and few left over things on plane.

decompression valve:
bought special long socket for them
it took out old and the one Dale George loaned me
it will not work on the new ones - freaking scream (no deeper ones available here and I bough this weeks ago
Maybe I can drill out the base just a wee bit?

Decompression valves and CDI ignition

Looks like my old one.

Make sure it is secure on top and that the stem cannot come out and into piston!!!

some people put a dab of silver solder on top or epoxy as a precaution.

George Curtis or Shorty may have new ones.
