I've noticed a crack in the silencer on the Vanagon, so I ordered a new one. It's here, so I installed it. It's stainless steel, so you'd think it'll last, but it's not braced like the mild steel one it's replacing. On the plus side, it has a lifetime warranty. I had read about the new one being smaller than the original, but I've managed to bend the outer casing clamping it down, so I don't think that's a problem.
In the evening, I went over to the airfield and to the plane out for a bit. I had the video camera running, and saw a train, so I chased it for a mile or two. I went along the river, and ran around the lake, and was tootling along when the airspeed indicator went down to zero. That bothered me, so I went back to the airfield... the hose from the probe has come unhooked. Doy.
