3 years as of today ...To all my friends, and all those who have followed this long thread:
Good to see this was somehow all resolved and Tom's M5 rescued from Area 51 (thoughts of night vision goggles, bolt cutters and tranquilliser guns)
Some photos would be good
It heads over to the front of the head near the water pumpSomeone remind me, because it's been a while: The tube that comes off the upper rad hose....where the hell does that go? I forgot; it's been a while since I've laid hands on an S38.
Back in Jakarta for a few weeksSo, Tony, how the hell are you, and where are you?
I spent 5 months in South Australia last year and 3 months so far this year. I've just opened a new company in Australia with my daughter (the next generation) so I'm now an evil multi national. She helps me on the Cessna and is a roll her sleeves up girl, doesn't mind getting her hands dirty.
For the first time in 5 years I have zero projects on. I was recommended on 3 projects in Indonesia, India and West Ghana which didn't go ahead as the aircraft owners took settlements instead of repairs or the airline wants to do the support work themselves.
At the moment building equipment for future projects when in Indonesia and working on my 1967 Cessna 182 hot rod (550 vs 470 cubes) when in Australia.
On mandatory M5 content GA25324 and GA25388 sulking in my warehouse in Jakarta, they will be shipped to Australia once my hangar is up later this year.
I've done a deal with Jacob to buy the white M5 GA25330 (ex Taffy) for use in Indonesia, deposit down and waiting on a big final invoice to be paid from my last project to complete the deal.
