Howdy from South Texas,

Recently purchased a 1957 PA22-150 and hangar it at 1TE4 (Zuehl Airpark). Already working on replacing a leaking fuel selector valve with the Dakota Cub version. Ordered and received new belts to include H style shoulder belts. Haven't brought myself to cut the headliner and install but soon.

Best regards,

Well, heck, I'll reply. I'm even newer then you. Not much participation on this board. Much more over at "the other one".

Welcome to both of us.

It is good to hear from both of you, Brad and sbmackie. I would have answered sooner but I didn't see a question so did not know if you wanted to talk, so I will.
I know that Brad has a PA22-150 but sbmackie did not say if you have a SW. I am going to assume both of you have joined the SWPC. If you have that is fine but if you haven't You can call Eleanor Mills at 417-883-1457 and she can sign you up.
I would like to invite both of you to the SWPC Convention to be held in Lock Haven, Pa. June 21-25 2021.
The SWPC has a lot to offer members and so does the other Club.They are different type of clubs and it is good to join both. The SWPC has a Convention every year and gives members the chance to see other SW and I believe helps to keep our airplanes in better condition, and see other ideas. Also you get to meet people from Canada, Ireland, and from all over the US.
I would like to see more activity on this forum and you do to so maybe you can help in that area. Thanks for reporting in and tell us about your SW.

My buddy and I own a 1961 Colt, tail dragger conversion and we operate out of San Antonio too. It is currently hangered at San Geronimo air park but it's main home will be a private air strip, a pasture, near Pleasanton, TX. We are fortunate that the former owner, my buddy's grandfather, registered it as experimental when he converted it so we do most of the work ourselves. Ours has the O-290-D2, 135 hp motor. We have replaced and rebuilt many things on this old bird and she now flies strong and fine. Also, if you know of a good tail wheel instructor who will instruct us in our plane let me know.
