Looking for engine assistance in california, south of Bay Area
Capt Sandy and I are snow-birds about to head south from the SF Bay area, looking for warmer (dry) weather. We are heading toward southern CA / western AZ. I have a cylinder that needs to be pulled and sent to LyCon for service. I could take N174RT to Aircraft Services in Visalia but they won't let me help and I hate to have someone work on my plane without me participating.
I'm looking for an experimental friendly mechanic and a place to work on N174RT where I can remove the cowl, baffles, etc and then the mechanic can pull the cylinder. I'll ship the cylinder to Lycon and would like help from the mechanic to reinstall the cylinder when it is returned.
email or phone/text work best for me:
