Hangar Flying / lightweight alternator
« on: February 19, 2007, 08:53:51 PM »
I have a contenental 0-200 in a verieze  the generator was leaking oil thru the shaft seal so I removed it . am looking for an alternator for it. does anyone know what is the best way to go for power. I have electric start & need power for radio & gps only. the 30 amp hr batt doesn"t last long enough for a long trip. so I end up having to hand prop on about the third stop. any info would be great. PS>am very glad this forum is back on the air. :D

Hangar Flying / nose battery access
« on: October 23, 2006, 08:17:20 PM »
I am a non builder and I  need some info about making a batt access cover on a veze. tips per say about cutting hole and can you reuse the piece you cut out . If reinforcement is needed where hole is cut. the batt is in the nose for weight and balance purposes and the only way to get at it is take the canard off which is a hassle every time you need to check batt. any info welcome thanks rebel.  :?

Hangar Flying / canopy

Yes I talked with Todd I am sending him full size drawing of frame  and he is going to make me a canopy to fit. I am holding the other canopy for him so if you know anyone who needs a longeze canopy let me or Todd know and it can be shipped from here. It is still in the plastic it was shipped in and original crate. Thanks very much Rebel.

that would work if the canopy was the right size and shape it is 24" wide at widest spot and vezy is only 18" wide at widest spot plus the nose is rounded on the new canopy and the veze is slightely pointed.. I can email you some pics. to see if you think I can make it work I don't have a way to post them here. thanks rebel.

just a quick note to anyone out there ordering a canopy thru todds canopy if you are replacing an existing canopy on a varieze or any othe r existing AC his canopy doesen,t have a lip like the original canopy. with his canopy you have to modify your frame to make it fit instead of just cutting the glass. unfortunately I found out the hard way.so am sending it back and looking for someone who makes the original canopy that has a lip on it. checked with aircraft parts but havent heard back yet. If anyone has any sugestions please let me know of other options.
