Patton Bay on Montague running the square tail wheel, I’ve since swapped it out with a normal profile tire that I much prefer.

I found an early picture of c/n 627 as t/n 63-13174 on wheels so decided to open it as #1 in the queue at the top of the page.

Benny sent me some photos of c/n 627 as it now looks
another all black Helio the latest trend seems to be a single
color which I'm starting to like better than the older 3 color
schemes with stripes and stuff.
Benny sent the photos without captions so I'm not sure if it
is on wheels or floats maybe he goes back and forth. When
I first looked at the photos with the two bladed MT prop I
thought maybe Benny had put together a 391 or a 250.
Even though the two bladed prop is more efficient you have
to admit the three bladed prop looks hotter.

A couple  of the photos I'm not sure what they show. The
photo of the bottom half of the cowling is probably to show
the installation of the cowling, the two fairings are probably
float attach fairings maybe fabricated by him.

Hopefully Benny will explain the pictures.

I will open the photos in the photo queue above

Doug,

Looks like he built gear leg/cowling fairings and a lower cowling from carbon fiber.

It’s just stuff I’ve been working on, when you run out of new parts you have to make your own. The cowl is going on a 250 and  I’ve only ever seen two cowlings for them and both were in ruff shape. I figured if I built the mould for the 250 you could always cut the part down for the other models.

How's the MT on floats vs the standard prop?

I can’t really compare props because I tried Edo 3430 this fall. As far as the floats go I really don’t have anything good to say about them. I’m going back to my PK’s, they are hands down better heavy haulers. I will say water erosion is nonexistent with the MT. The Hartzel might be a tad faster in cruise but in all fairness I haven’t tested it in identical configurations. I don’t plan on going back to a Hartzel anytime soon.
