  • Not sure about the specific gasolators shown, but on the stock unit that top port is unfiltered fuel. It may be that the primer system was plumbed unfiltered from the factory, but if your preference is to supply only filtered fuel to your primer and engine, cap the top port and T the primer off the...

  • You can do the inspection and sealing if you have your process approved by the FAA as a terminating action to the AD. I assume this means your shop needs to be approved/authorized for that type of work.

    I drilled holes in the the end plates on mine (at the direction of Wag) and did a camera...

  • I haven't worked with the process but did check it out while making covering decisions for CF-CLR. I have spent time each year at their exhibit at OSH.

    As with all of the available processes, the finished result is heavily dependent on the person doing the work and how much time he/she...

  • Hank asked me about the solar setup.
    I was actually looking for a thin flexible panel, but then this Coleman one went on special for $28 (US$20), and I was short of time so I tried it. It's rated 10 watts. I put some velcro on it and it fits between the compass and fuselage tubes.

  • After talking to many manufacturers about comms and transponders, I went with trig. the primary reason was that the factory reps were actually able and willing to answer my questions and take the time to discuss install, rack and wiring diagrams etc.

    The transponder gets its air/ground...

  • There is an inexpensive solution to moisture problems... I run a small dehumidifier in my hangar whenever the temperature is above freezing. My air compressor intake is right next to the dehumidifier outlet.

    I originally did this because the floor is asphalt and moisture percolates up...

  • Here's my two cents..... I think they're called finishing tapes for a reason ie simply a means by which to seal and smooth out the surface where the underlying fabric is perforated by wires, lacing etc. The integrity comes from the reinforcing tape under the wire, lacing, rivets, screws. Light tapes...

  • I suspect most of the wear on the bolts/pins, pushrod, belcrank and control horn is due to vibration more than movement of the trim system. For this reason a "sticky" lube that will keep the parts from fretting against each other is a good idea. I like EZTurn. It goes on sticky and stays...

  • High probability that at least some of the holes are damaged already as the original wire can tear the ribs during installation and removal.

    one of the approvals i saw called for drilling all new holes, which is likely the only option if you want to end up with consistent spacing....

    There may indeed be some irony but nothing to do with F19 windows. They are not in fact F19 windows, which are at least twice the size. I'm not certain they are from May 46 either but they are from that era. Though rare I have seen other post war BC12Ds with the same D frames.

    I can...

  • Thanks Bob
    I made a few "new" nose ribs but all the rest were just cleaned, straightened, repaired and epoxy primed (over the course of several months!)
    Yes there are left-flanged ribs and right flanged ribs. there's a sketch in the documents section that shows the relative locations...

    Little slow on the uptake on this but.... Mine is May 46 and I spent a long time trying to find information on the original configuration and never found a photo, drawing or description of the exact configuration for that time period. I did my best to come up with an install that made sense of the D...

  • The rib section aft of the spar is basically one left and one right aft ribs riveted together plus the cove flange and cable phenolic. Mention this because if you don't find one and you can salvage the cove flange from your old one, you can build one from two regular ribs.
