As I look at all these airplanes with multiple magnetos, multiple fuel tanks, frail looking parts, chips and scratches, etc . . . How do they keep everything going? I'm having a hard enough time with my one carburetor and my wheels on the ground. The planes just kept coming and going. Rides for $20 - they finally had to cut off the rides due to over-popularity. The pancakes were excellent !
I gassed up and hit the road again. My chopper is runnin' good now. A few spits out the carb at mid-range speeds tells me I could go one bigger on the intermediate jet (28 to a 29.5). Usually rain or high humidity likes a leaner mixture - so, this change could make it run even worse in the wet? Won't know til' I try it. I journey though the towns of Floyd, down to Greene, thru Packard(photo above), down to Clarksville, then Plainfield (ride through the campground) - and back up to Nashua. Everything is just golden. This thing is rippin' - grabbin' gears - just Jammin ! I decide to stop at the Charles City Car Show . . .
This show is always good. A variety of really nice cars in this area . . . and the hamburgers are really great too . . . A perfect day in Iowa.
