    Tri-Star Semi Auto Need Parts diagram or info

    I have a TriStar 20ga semi auto shotgun that I believe is missing some parts. It will not cycle. What I think I know is it was made prior to 2013, is s/n +/- 55000 and there is no prefix letter in front of the s/n. Supposedly all of the older models were "Queen" models. This is not the Viper...

    Vanguard Mod thread posted on other forum

    FYI I posted some questions, and successes, on mounting a bigger Backwater Performance Carb on a Vanguard Mud Buddy. Not sure how many of you have shallow drives, and have thought about doing the same thing. Maybe what I found will make your lives a bit easier. It is in the...

    23hp vanguard powered Mud Buddy, Issues w/ Mounting big Carb

    As stated I have the 23hp Briggs/Stratton Vanguard Mud Buddy. I bought the Big Carb/Kit from Backwater Performance. They shipped it right away and it got here, so good customer service at that point. I opened the box and found the instructions. Seemed straight forward, though the photos are...

    Two Years Ago Today

    I know this does not belong here, but this forum is read the most. On May 1, 2014, Alaska State Troopers Scott Johnson and Gabe Rich were slain by a young man in Tanana. They were killed while responding to a conflict over a piece of furniture. They were killed by a coward, shot from behind...

    How best to use urine from a dog in estrus

    I've been gathering urine from my lab for the past week or so since she came into season. She is just now getting hot and would be ready to breed this week. I broke out some trail this past weekend through mature timber, and across several dry sloughs, grass flats, and small lakes. I drove the...

    Anti-Freeze Options for Lure

    I caught some beaver earlier this season, got them skinned, and froze the carcasses. I brought one in to taint, hanging it in the garage, bagged. I noticed the blood was dripping to the bottom of the bag, so I caught it in a bottle. I had some glycerin I added, but it was not enough to keep...

    You Know Lure/Bait is Good When....

    Was talking w/ my Brother in Law about lure and such. We laugh at some of the things we do. You know you are a trapper when you open up a bottle of something that smells bad, just to prove it once again... So, before you get out on the trap line, how do you know (hope) the lure is "good"...

    Interesting plane for sale; 8GCBC, O-360, Cub gear mod, and modified leading edge (no idea what that means). Who has 1st hand knowledge of the Scout, and original gear. What are the pros and cons of that gear? Compare that to cub gear, what's the difference? How tough is each? Now, why...

    Big tires; what size and why

    No doubt if I dug I'd find multiple threads on Tundra tires, but I'm lazy, so figured I'd just write it out. The plane is a Cessna 170. She's on Lady Legs, slightly taller than standard gear, and is pulled by an O-320 w/Constant Speed prop. I've talked w/ folks that have mounted both 29" and...

    What's new for your upcoming season?

    Any changes, equipment, new toys or other exciting stuff you are adding for Sept 1? For me: Lab pup: My sons dog really, but since I help him train, I get to have the pup w/ me when I hunt. He'll be alongside my 7 year old yellow female. He's a good pup, gonzo to retrieve, loves the water...

    AOPA Memberships and Insurance Providers

    First, are you an AOPA member? If so, what level did you decide to join at and why? I see 4 different annual membership options, and 2 lifetime options. Have you ever had reason to use the added services that AOPA offers? I'm still researching, but do medical providers (specifically...

    Found Keys on the Runway, Chena Marina

    I took a walk the other night to see how the snow is holding up and found a set of keys sunk down in the hard pack. They may have been there a while. I gave them to Mark at Chena Marina Air. Give him a call to identify what type of train, plane, or automobile (maybe even a toy) that they...

    Who knows a thing about Cushman Tracksters?

    Well, there is one green "frog" sitting in my garage, currently supported by jack stands. Some unnamed child that I once claimed got a wild hair, bought one, and decided December is a good time to tear it down and work on it. Oh joy! No, that is not his name, especially right now since his...

    Cessna 170 Parts

    I decided to buy a wrecked 170B for a few parts that I want to keep on hand just in case I do something silly. I've been dismantling it pretty carefully, but even so, realized afterwards that some structure that was likely usable, well, is not now. Amazing what a maniac and a recip saw can do...

    Aircraft Heat; What Works, What Doesn't

    I plan on setting the C-170 up w/ electric heaters for in town pre-heat. I've got a Honda 2000 generator, but when I'm parked out front I'll have power close to the plane. What do you guys use for "in town" electric heaters? What do you use for areas that you do NOT have power? What have you...

    Skis for Cessna 170

    I looked at older threads, but got frustrated trying to find info that likely you guys have already talked about. So, if you know of a previous thread that helps the discussion, can you provide the link? Thanks I have a C-170B w/ 0-320 @160hp. The goal is to set it up w/ skis to be able to do...

    Roca is a Rockstar

    6 big birds taken and Roca brought back 5 of them. The one she did not get landed in the trees, hidden, so we would not send her. My partner went to find that one himself. The grass is tall, water is deep, and the muck, well, it is mucky. She could see birds falling, but really there was no...

    Long term fuel storage

    How long is too long to store avgas? You pump fresh 100LL from a known source (FBO, etc) into a steel (or poly) 55 gallon drum and close it tight. The drum sits outside, either in the sun, or in the shade (could be a cold building) in such a way that water can not infiltrate through the bungs...

    High water bank damage and Boat Wakes

    With the current high water, especially on the Tanana, people are losing banks at an alarming rate. In Perkins Slough, off the Tanana just below Chena Pump Campground the water has been right at the top of the bank, though it is droppping slightly. Homeowners can't do much to save the bank...
