Hey gang; I could really use your help out there. I just bought a 1975 Decathlon a few weeks ago. I had it checked out by a knowledgeable mechanic and compression was good with all cylinders in the low to mid seventy. Engine was completely rebuilt about 800 hours ago. I have been doing pretty hard acrobatics (rolls, loops Cuban eights, hammerheads, inverted flight) since I bought it and noticed that I needed a quart of oil after only three hours? Looked under the belly and pretty sure it has been blown out. I looked over the former owner detailed engine logs and I can see he did very little Arco and in normal flight he added a quart of oil every 5 to 8 hours. Should I be concerned about this oil consummation you guys?

There's a Lycoming bulletin board out there somewhere that has many very experienced lycoming guru's posting regularly. If you can find the site, they will have good sound information on your problem.

Has anyone out there got a set of rigging boards for a Starduster Too ? I just
bought the airplane and it is horribly out of rig. If anyone has a set already cut I'll be happy to buy them.
