When I was in Louisiana in Feb I called the owner in California so it could have a look at them and he told me that they were just sold so I gave up on them, now they are for sale again,  same pictures as before, sale must have fell thru.

Aren't the float fitting the same for EDO amphibious floats than straight floats ?

Thanks, Guys-   Louis:  They could be the same for straight or amphibs.  I have EDO/Kenmore on the case.  Just wondering if anyone has a set out there?    Did you put floats on an H800?  Thanks/  Bob Wallace

Yes the 800 was on floats.  STC  PK 4000.   My present 295 is on Wipline.  One time LSTC.  I think we went with EDO-Helio float fitting.  Probably with some ajustment since my 295 is a 800 frame.  In the back, i don't think it change anything.  In the front, may be:  I remember that the bolt-dowel-shaft that holds the engine mount-frame-main gear of the 800 was different than the 295.  A bit longer, and solid shaft. With a diffenernt thread for the bolt.  But may be my 295 was fitted with a 295 pin since it have the 295 gear.

Anyway, Denis here have a set of EDO floats and fitting if you need drawings or photo

H-4 was on PK 4000 Amphib floats. When I picked it up the DeVore Aviation drawings for the installation for the PK's were included in the paperwork.
If this will help anyone, let me know.
