  1. Steve, 1) The stock wheel is a bear to work with. In my experience, the key is to first support the wheel via a dummy axle post (secured rigidly in a workshop vise) and work one tire bead onto the wheel; then work the tube into the tire, then mechanically clamp (i.e. squeeze without pinching the tube) one sector of the tire together so that both tire beads can be worked together down into the "valley" at the mid-plane of the wheel, and then work the remainder of the second bead onto the tire. Talcum powder does help. Liquid soap can also be used, but expect a mess. It's hard enough to do

  2. Great article! I actually own this very aircraft N300BG and just completed a cross country trip from Pennsylvania to Oklahoma last week. It flew well and particularly enjoyed cruising at 2200 rpm (cruise pitch setting). The trip took around 13 flight hours and I made several stops along the way. The Grob can outlast me anytime when it comes to endurance! Thanks for posting the article.
