Fairchild Progress! - The Cylinder is Off!

Flying season is nearly here so Skyler and I decided to give Fiona the Fairchild a little love today. While Sky swept the hangar and vacuumed the plane of all the concrete dust that accumulated last year, I began taking the engine down so we could replace the one cracked cylinder. 7 1/2 hours later the cylinder came off the engine. Now we have to wait on UPS to bring the new gasket kit from Fresno Air Parts so we can put it back together.
