Louis, thanks for pictures you must be digging through your archives.

I opened them in the queue above, do you by chance have any photos shortly after last incident, or the way it looks sitting at Perry Linton's shop.

I found a B/W picture of an early c/n 044 N4120D on e-bay for sale  5 days left to bid
click on  https://www.ebay.com/itm/312799112653?ul_noapp=true

I will open the photo as #1 in the queue at the top of the page.

maybe Leslie McCurdy might want to buy it. Anyone able to contact him?

I have discovered the three holes in the side are Kilgore signal flares same as those installed on c/n 037, N4115D

Anyone know what the colors are I like the lines of the layout of the paint scheme, with the colored top of the cowling blending into the lightning bolt stripe.

Added the identified photos above as 2 and 3.

Anyone know when the refurbish was completed?

Anyone have a current photo after the refurbish?

So how much sooner will a helio with out the spacers in the oleos fly than one with the spacers? Mine has the spacers in the oleos that keep the gear from tucking too far under the plane when airborne, good for when flying skis.  It never occurred to me, but I guess they also limit how much higher the nose can lift during the takeoff roll.

Would there be a significant decrease in takeoff roll if those spacers were removed and I got a few extra inches of lift and degrees of aoa?

Well the angle of attack is the same once you are airborne.  But the gear legs are a lot shorter, and not mounted with oleo that are ready to make the gear spring up. So like any tailwheel, you can't pull to make a rotation.  It is the angle of attack that the gear allow on the ground that will define the angle of attack that it will fly. 

The destroyed turbine Wilga had a spring loaded gear to do what the 391-295 Helio does when starting to roll.  In a much complicated way.  The pilatus pc6 also does gain angle from it's gear at rolling.  But not the 700-800.  They have a fibreglass or aluminium gear that will spring only two or three inches.  And they are shorter than the 391-295 legs

I am sure your super stinson with 31 inches tire does fly a lot sooner than with it's standard tires when you need it.
