Measure the longitudinal distance from the RD to the axle of the nose wheel. This is the value X1. Record the value in the weight report. This value should be with a minus sign, 6. Measure the longitudinal distance from the RD to the axle of the main wheels. This is the value X2. Record the value in the weight report, 7. Note the weight of each scale and record in the weight report, 8. Remove the airplane from the scales, record the weight of the supporting wood pieces of each scale as tare weight for that scale, 20 20 Page: 20 of Change the left and right scales for the main wheels, and repeat the weighing procedure again.
Record results in the weight report, Calculate the average weight value for each wheel. X1 is the distance from nose wheel axle centerline to projection of RD. X2 is the distance from main wheel axle centerline to projection of RD. The Factory Weight and Balance report will accompany the Aircraft on delivery.
Every variation due to the installation of new components or repairs and painting, implicate a new calculation of the empty weight and the relative positioning of the center of gravity. Any weight and Balance changes should be recorded into the aircraft log book. When checking tire pressure, examine for tire wear, cuts, bruises and slippage. Remove oil, grease and mud from tires with soap and water.
NOTE: Recommended tire pressures should be maintained, especially in cold weather. Any drop in temperature of air inside the tire causes a corresponding drop in tire pressure.
The wheel rims used in this aircraft are of the split rim type and as such generally require an inner tube. Should the tube or tire require replacement the following procedure will be of assistance. Raise the aircraft to suspend the wheel off the ground Remove the wheel fairing Remove axle from wheel housing Unbolt the disk brake from rim rear wheel only Remove wheel from axle assembly Split rim by undoing the rim bolts NOTE: ensure no pressure is left in tire prior to splitting the rim.
Replace defective tire or tube Re bolt the rim being careful not to pinch the inner tube Inflate the tire to correct tire pressure Check bearing for smoothness in rotation Submerse the inflated tire in water and check for leaks Re-assemble the wheel to the axle in reverse order. It is assumed that the bolts and nylon locknuts are in new condition and are made from standard finish 8.

Daily Inspections, includes refuelling, fuel system draining and pre flight inspection. It is also done once after an engine change, engine or airplane overhaul or major repair due an accident or other major damage. Other limited maintenance periods for certain equipment are listed separately. Magnetos Check OFF 2. Master switch ON 3. Fuel quantity Check 4. Master switch OFF 5. Tank filler cap clean, and then open 6. Fill the required amount of fuel per flight plan 7. Tank filler cap Close, check flush with top of wing 8.
Master switch ON, check fuel quantity 9. Master switch OFF If leaded fuel is used, or LL Fuel, engine maintenance checks including spark plugs change, must be carried out more often. Fuel drainage should also be repeated if the airplane was parked for more than three hours.
Draining is accomplished by operating the cock located on the gascolator in the lower engine compartment, just in front of the firewall frame. Draining 80 to cc cubic inches is considered sufficient to eliminate the water in the tank. Use transparent container to drain into. If water is found in the drained fuel, repeat fuel drain operation until the water is completely drained and any trace of water in the fuel is completely eliminated. Fuel drainage should be performed before moving the airplane from its parking place, to avoid condensation or water present on tank bottom mixing and emulsifying with fuel, making detection difficult.
