    Hi,

    .....Not sure if I'm breaking any rules here,....

    I think you got a lot of people drooling with their thoughts.

If I knew I could sell at least 10 over a couple years, I'd eat the up front cost and sell the approvals for $50 each. That's what I charge for my J3 battery installation approval for.

    Not sure if I'm breaking any rules here, if so, my apologies and please remove this post.

    Well I learned the hard way...wish I would have known about this thread. I flew to my dads ranch last night and parked the plane over night. It was on a hill. I Left the Maul selector in the off position like I normally do. Woke up this morning with the left tank empty and the right tank full. Sounds like I should have left the selector in the left or right position instead of the both or off.
    Also, that Fuel ran along the wing to the tip. There is a lot of blue sticky stuff. I hope it didnít eat away at the fabric or dope.
