Thanks Andreas,

I did watch that lovely video of the two of you flying out of Kiel (?).  I think that might have to be a destination for an expedition next year!

Maintenance and Repair / C85 engine.
« Last post by Bill Geipel on September 28, 2017, 09:44:44 AM »
Has anyone done a C85 engine conversion from the Franklin. My engine may be gone so am considering options.
Specifically where do I locate engine mount and is there anything else that is troublesome.

Thank you

Maintenance and Repair / Re: Lifting a Lark (Jacking etc)
« Last post by AndreasKonzelmann on August 03, 2017, 04:29:16 AM »
I just hunk down under the main spar and lift one side with my shoulders and back. Another person places the stands under the main spar. I do this twice  alternating on  both sides. Maybe you can also use a hydraulic jack to rise the stands (I never tried).
Before i put the tailwheel on a heavy block and strap it down.

Thanks Andreas,

Those axel stands look like a neat solution (6 tonnes!!!).  But how (where) do you jack-up the airframe in order to rest on the stands?   (one local engineer did suggest just getting 3 people to lift by hand (or rather by back!).

I use higher than normal car jacks and wooden padded beams under the main spar. Jacks are "Draper AS6000". They are from UK.
