Nose Job 2
Lip Skid

Probably will do the gear bearings (all three) this year.

Considering the oil system mods.

And I must say, they are AWESOME when you call for help. I'm mechanically inept and I stripped out a couple bolts on the nose job. They shipped replacements the same day at no charge.

Nothing but praise for them from me.

Love the almost a 14 and nose job mods, and also make use of the prop wrench. I got the gust lock too but sold it in favor of exterior gust locks. I found it a little bit awkward and more importantly, you have to get into the plane to take it off and then get out again to do your pre-flight. That bugged me. Always great service from Alan.

I've used the following products from Anti-splat:
Nose job
Main wheel bearings
Nose wheel bearings
Air/oil separator with vacuum
Gust lock
EZ Cool Cowl Flaps (2)


Every product has worked as advertized and the support has been very good.

Vlad,
Did you put washers under those bolt heads? Seems like I recall reading somewhere that a washer or oversized washer is needed on the upright portion because of the slots to help spread the load bearing.

I had the oversize washers then decided to remove them. They require even longer bolts.
