Hangar Flying / Re: Gas Shock

If this is still an open topic.  If you get the geometyry sorted then these guys have preloaded gas struts that you "bleed off" until you get just the load value that you need.  They ar e based in UK but there must be similar things over there.  PG

OK Joe!
Thanks for the input so rapidly.  I haven't bothered too much about the filter box yet, just concentrating on the control cables.

Hangar Flying / Lycoming O-235 carburettor orientation
« on: June 09, 2014, 09:55:05 AM »
Has anyone any advice or comments on whether I can (or cannot) rotate the carb on my O-235 ,through 90 about a vertical axis.
Basically I want to make for a lot easier connections of the mixture and throttle operating cables.
There may be some issues with mixture distribution to the cylinders or maybe icing aspects.
If anyone out there has any technical advice or suggestions I would be very welcome to have it.
