Hi Craig,
George and Shannon are right and also the next closest people to Dale Kramer with Lazair knowledge. George is and excelent fabricator, with parts better than original. Here's a handy little punch I made when I opened my D-cells. You still have to drill the head off the rivet but that's it. I used a pair of cheap pliers drilled a 7/64 hole in 1 jaw, cut the shank of the bit off and epoxied it in the hole. Then welded a short length of 1/8 inch pipe on the other jaw for an anvil and away you go. It took me less than an hour to remove all the rivets. Your in for a frustrating and rewarding experience!
Good Luck,
Don A774

Very helpful suggestions and pictures. Looks like some questionable engineering in the parts I have.

Did I see split flaps in the pictures of the yellow modified Lazair?

After a couple months of not working on this and noting that I barely have a couple hours a week to fly, I passed this project onto someone who has the time and skills to complete it.

Jim is an A&P and fellow EAA member in Oklahoma. If you all extend the warm welcome and high level of help you extended me, he'll get it flying!
