This page is a catch-all for technical information on Grumman Tigers, Grumman Cheetahs and Grumman Traveler.  Some of the stuff is quite controversial.  Like, sodium filled valves for example.  Another might be, my choice of oil.  It isn't likely my break-in procedure will find wide acceptance either.  You be the judge.

Type Certificate Data Sheets:

AA5:  This is TCDS A16EA.  It covers the Grumman-American/(fill in the blank) AA5x series planes.

Supplemental Type Certificate:

STC's:  This is an old file from AYA.  It's amazing that STCs are so hard to find on the internet. 

Dumb Design Decisions:

Design:  This is one of my favorite topics.  I've spent a lot of time in committees.

Fuel and Oil Hoses:

Hoses for Tiger:  Over the years I've changed the sizes to those I think fit best.  Here they are.
Hoses for Cheetah:

Wiring Diagrams:
