  • I've LOVED airplanes ever since I can remember. First, flying models as a kid and then the real thing when I was 18. I flew C-130s and U-10As in the Marine Corps. I have a Starduster Too that my good friend built on which I modified the main gear. I have a Cassutt IIIM racer that I am rebuilding and I am building a Kestrel Hawk that is almost ready to be inspected.

    Ray - You are right; I should have been thinking about corrosion and not just the possible
    galling. I will scope the cylinders before I do anything. I was assuming, hoping really, that
