Well I spent the whole weekend (OK, not the whole thing, we saw Get Smart last night, but damn near 10-9 on Saturday) working on the plane. The good folks at the Lebanon Airport Maintenance shop got the plane back to us, and I busily tried to get it ready to fly. First we found the mag check failed (I wired my key switches to the new LSE ignition interconnect cable backwards-which shouldn’t matter, but does), then she ran rough on the left mag.
Obeying Stockman’s Law of Aircraft Problems (thanks Bill), I replaced the plug lead to the bottom #6, where I’d just installed a Tiny Tach back-up tachometer. Bill’s law states that the last thing touched is thing that’s broken, and it’s true 90%+ of the time. So, we got everything squared away, but had 20 knot direct crosswinds with gusts to 29. Hopefully we’ll fly today.
