4.80X12 tires

I don't have an answer for you but I hear that you will replace a trailer tire for old age/dry rot long before the tread wears out. I wish. My tires are like 2 1/2 years old and NO tread left.

1542 Grumman Side to Center Console Conversion

I'm probably going to convert to the center console option also on mine. I have been tying to come up with a way to mount the controls also . Will definitely look forward to your build.

Heli-Coil /// Sav-A-Thread /// Stripped Threads

That's similar to what I use at work and works very well for a lot of applications. Great advice.
Edit - Our brand is Timesert , fixed 2 on a aluminum cylinder head yesterday (4/15) in a matter of minutes. [img]https://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/16/yty5y7y9.jpg[/img]

Said it was low on power, black smoke, fouls spark plugs. So I start diagnosis. Compression test. 130 PSI, acceptable. I like 150 or bet...
