Reading takes effort compared to napping….

Builders,

.

I’ve been napping through William’s stories my whole life, and I’m OK with that. Napping beats reading any day, and William takes a long time to explain stuff.

.

.

Sometimes, if I have to stay awake for a long story, I just wedge my muzz in the back of a chair. If you jam your snout in tight enough, it keeps your eyes open, so it looks like your interested.

.

I don’t have to read the stories, I fly behind the engines, I don’t build them. If you decide you are never going to finish your plane you don’t have to read them either.

.

Have fun and do good.

How to get thrown out of Corvair College

Builders:

.

During the last 40 Colleges we have had only three rules:

.

No Politics

No Religion

No Communism

.

Since our national entitlement has become “taking offense” and “calling people out” and let’s not forget the ever pathetic “demanding an apology ” I assume that people will get upset about these without ever asking what they mean. I don’t write of teach for such people, so we can forget them.

.

The third part has long been explained to people who can read, that we don’t allow the use of Chinese Toque Wrenches. About a half dozen people have wrecked an engine with one, and when these engines failed, I’m sure none of these people stood up at their next EAA meeting and said “Actually it had nothing to do with the Corvair design, I’m just a cheap idiot who chose not to follow William’s directions”

.

So after 40 colleges no one would try to use one of these at a college right? Guess again. The picture below is from CC#40. A builder brought this “Pittsburgh” harbor freight POS and torqued his case with it. I made him take it apart and redo it with my snap on electronic wrench. When I did this, the builder sheepishly told me he bought it at his local EAA meeting so he thought it was OK. I told him the guy who sold it to him to work on planes was a maggot in my book. Not good enough for his family, but he needed to get his $25 back so he sold it to our guy headed to CC #40.

.

It was either a sign my anger management training from years ago still works, or maybe I was just real tired, but I didn’t make a giant issue out of this at the time, even after the builder told me he worked

on planes in the USAF, so he knew better. But no one should try me on this from here forward.

.

If you have one of these, throw it out. Under no circumstances bring it to a college. Because if anyone does from here forward, and tells me “I thought it would be ok” or ” it’s good enough” I am going to throw them out of the college, no delay, no apology, no refund.

.

.

Above, the actual “Pittsburgh” item. Unlike the communist piece of shit, I was actually born in Pittsburgh, and I find this offensive that some Maoist in Throw-dung province stole the name of my home town. The only thing these are good for is to get a head start on beating the traffic on the way home from the college.

.

To say it plainly, if a person can’t follow the most basic instructions I have, and his attitude is “this is just as good” then I’m not interested in trying to teach him anything, nor am I interested in having the Corvair later blamed for his lack of judgement.

SPA Corvair Assembly Manual

Builders:

.

Pictured below is a SPA engine assembly manual. It is a complete step by step checklist guide to putting together a Corvair flight engine in the exact manner at Dan Weseman and Myself teach builders. It is profusely illustrated and very detailed. It took hundreds of hours to document and edit. I brought copies hot from the printer, with me to Zenith and CC#40. It met rave reviews from builders.

.

It is a complimentary book to my conversion manual. Every builder should have both. With the SPA manual, it is no longer necessary for builders to use a green GM shop manual.

.

This new manual can be ordered directly from the Sport Performance Aviation LLC products page or call SPA directly at 904 626 7777 to purchase your copy. They have the in stock, ready for shipping.

..

.

PLEASE NOTE: For Corvair College #41 and after, I am making it a requirement that any builders doing anything in the assembly phase ( it isn’t a requirement for observing or tear-downs , but anyone holding a ratchet set to righty-tighty must have one of these in their possession. Obviously it will do the most good if builders doing assembly have studied it well in advance of the college. )
