I have had good success using the speedometer cable style adjustment on my 
Zenith carb.

With 238 hours to date, I have not had any issues with this method.

Looks a little unconventional but works fine.

Details on request if interested.

KR> KRElevator weights advise

2014-05-20 Thread ppaul...@aol.com via KRnet
4.5 lbs is a lot of weight to add to foam horns. Even with CF on the ends. 
Joe, what did you do to beef up the horn areas?

I used 2.6 pounds on a 16 inch arm hinged on a bell crank 14 inches forward 
of the elevator hinge.  Connection between the elevator bell crank and the 
balance counter weight bell crank is by a push rod and rod ends.  All 
linkage and counter weight are in the fuselage.  This push rod is also part 
of the elevator linkage to the stick.  Elevator and aileron linkage is all 
pushrods.

My biggest headache was with the 32mm posa.Too leaky for hand prop and too
lean on the high end.In all fairness to posa,mine was probably too
big[32mm] for an 1835.Had good luck with the GPAS zenith and Ellison
EFS2.The Ellison gave me some problems until I discovered a hole in the
diaphram.Replaced it with the tillotson diaphram.No problems since.Still
needs primer for start.Tommy W.
