The 5mm bolts inside 6mm holes is fine. Don't waste your time with bushings.

But Gordon... the biggest advantage... it's lighter

But it is nice to know what the majority are doing. And, I may drop the bushings. At this point it makes me feel better. I do like Bradleys explanation.

See, I knew I was asking the right group of guys! Thanks, it's great to find out that your 'problem' is not actually a problem LOL

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Sorry..... between work and family stuff. If I have a free minute my head is stuck in my Slick trying to get all the little things done.
I want it done by Sunday.
Need to take it outside for some pictures of it all together for the first time

Come to think of it. This thread was started, due to the way everyone de-railed your EME120 thread. Kind of funny.

Actually just got home from the Pool (11pm). But now I have earned a 5 day week-end. Haul my 10' assembly table home, set-it-up in Arlene's garage.
But, I think she has us going on a 2 day trip around a guided dog sled ride.
What ever it takes to spend money man. Not burying airframes, got to spend it some where.!

-Dale-

Let's get at it tomorrow Jack.

Good night all.
