  • Drawing G-156 Cowling Installation

    Does anyone have a copy of Gilberti Aviation Drawing G-156 Cowling Installation?
    I seem to have lost mine, I have contacted Terry for an official replacement, but in the meanwhile, I can use a copy.
    Also what type of aluminum have you used for the Taylorcraft cowling (BC12D 1946 modified F19)?

    Thanks

      it would be long. I believe the drawing adds 4" to the original cowl

        Lots of owners with the STC have the drawings. I do as well. Terry will confirm if the STC was tied to the aircraft S/N at some point and help.

              50-50 half hard, I believe it was .060 for top and bottom . The bottom is flat stock with cooling lip. it sticks down about an addition two inches and the center bracket is longer and used a cam lock like the original did. The top hinge is a 1930? Ford hinge. The top I used a roller twice to put in the curves that are needed

                Nice work. Did you take detailed photos of the assembly?

                      Here are the remaining pictures. I used some white trailer soft metal to make patterns. My nose bowl was rather poor condition, meaning not very strait. My patterns would only fit my nose bowl and air box. My engine is a 0-200 derated to 85 hp.using lord mounts
