Gentlemen,

The picture is of N4089P, built by Dave Adams, based at KGWW.

I purchased it in somewhat flying condition and have spent many hours making it my own. Mostly minor mods such as installing a handheld radio bracket and putting a PTT in the stick.

As to the speculation:

The engine is a Franklin 4AC-199E, 90hp. Electric start, though no electric system. The black box low down behind the engine is a battery that takes ground power to charge and is used to start the engine and operate the handheld. A full charge will crank the engine more times than I have had need of as yet.

The brake pedal thing is, in fact, a brake pedal thing. Operated by cable to heel brakes. There are two independent brake systems, right and left.

There is no fuel primer system. The carb has an accelerator pump that does the job nicely.

The wing is a Clark Y.

The only "lead in the tail" is in the pilots tail. She balances nicely on the ground but I am told it is a "little" nose heavy in flight. I have not taken it up myself but hope to get a test pilot to take it up for me soon and do the initial evaluation of the rigging. I had to take the wings off to transport it to its current location and being a low time Sport Pilot with no time in a Piet, I thought it prudent to have a test pilot do an evaluation for me. Volunteers?

Any and all questions will be answered to the best of my limited ability.

Based at KGWW... Goldsboro, North Carolina. You have some experienced Piet pilots in your region, and my guess is that one of them would be willing to test your airplane.

I stand corrected!! I thought it had to pump something, never thought someone would put master cylinder on other side of firewall.

Maybe it is set up to hold the brakes while propping from behind the
propeller.
