CONVERSION, LOTS OF MODS AND UPGRADES, GREAT PROJECT, CHEAP !!DO YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH THE VALDEZ BOYS?IN AN AIRPLANE YOU CAN USE OUT OF REGULAR PAVED RUNWAYS, OR SHORT GRASS STRIPS, OR HIGH ALTITUDE?A CESSNA 150 WITH A LYCOMING IS JUST THE TICKET !!THIS 1968 150 HAS THE COMPLETE J&S ENGINEERING MOD, WITH THE S.T.C. WHICH ALLOWS 150 H.P OR 160 H.P. 0-320’S OR 180 H.P. 0-360’S ON THIS AIRPLANE !!WITH ONLY A 150 H.P. INSTALLED, SPEC’S LISTED ARE AS FOLLOWS:COMPARED TO A STANDARD 100 H.P. 150*29 MPH HIGHER CRUISE SPEED*28 MPH HIGHER CRUISE SPEED* 430 FEET MORE PER MINUTE RATE OF CLIMB* 500 FT. LESS TAKE-OFF ROLLAND THESE ARE THE NUMBERS FOR ONLY 150 H.P. !!180 H.P. WOULD MAKE CRAZY NUMBERS !!THIS AIRPLANE HAS THE MODIFIED FIBERGLASS NOSE CAP, THE SPECIAL ENGINE MOUNT, THE AUX FUEL PUMP, THE FUEL AND OIL LINES, THE FUEL PRESSURE GUAGE INCLUDED !ONE OF THE ISSUES WITH A LARGER ENGINE ON THE 150 IS THE LACK OF STANDARD FUEL, SO THIS AIRPLANE ALSO HAS ***LONG RANGE FUEL TANKS*** ADDED !!WITH ALL THE TOYS ADDED, THE AIRPLANE WEIGHS MORE, SO THE S.T.C. FOR THE ENGINE INSTALL INCLUDES AN INCREASE TO 1760 LBS. GROSSBECAUSE THE AIRPLANE WEIGHS MORE, IT TENDS TO INCREASE THE STALL SPEED, SO THIS AIRPLANE HAS MANY MODS ADDED TO DECREASE THE STALL SPEED, AND INCRESE THE CONTROLABILITY AT LOW SPEED.HORTON STOL KIT, WHICH ADDS LEADING EDGE CUFFS, HIGH LIFT WINGTIPS, STALL FENCES AND AILERON GAP SEALS TO THE WINGS.VORTEX GENERTORS, WHICH DECREASE THE SPEED THAT THE AIRCRAFT WILL STALL AT AND ADDS EXTRA CONTROL AT SLOW SPEEDS.I FLEW A CHEROKEE “6” WITH BOTH THE HORTON KIT AND VORTEX GENERATORS ONCE, AND THE HARDEST THING IS TO REMEMBER TO SLOW THE AIRPLANE DOWN BEFORE YOU GET TO THE RUNWAY ON LANDING, OR YOU WILL JUST FLOAT BY IT.THE CHEROKEE “6” STARTED TO SAG TOWARD THE GROUND AT 45 KNOTS, (NOT THE NORMAL 70-75 KNOTS) STILL WITH GOOD CONTROL.I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW SLOW A 150 WITH THESE MODS CAN GET DOWN TO !!OH, 1 FORGOT TO MENTION, THIS AIRCRAFT ALSO HAS THE ***TAILWHEEL CONVERSION KIT*** !!THIS STC REPLACES THE 150 NOSEWHEEL WITH A TAILWHEEL SETUP (IN THIS CASE A SCOTT), A MAIN GEAR RELOCATION KIT, AND TURNS THE 150 INTO A 2 PLACE 170B !!NOW COMBINE THE TAILWHEEL…
