Re: Restoration questions

Dave- Yest that was my website. I used it to document my work for my IA and then to supplement the records I presented to the FAA to prove I had the required experience to take the A&P exam. You are correct about the two long bolts at the bottom of the wraparound(boot cowl). They are taken out at th...

Re: Restoration questions

Chapter 2 - I just looked at your first post again and having recovered from my Middletown adventure will pass along my observations. 1. Fabric tape was used in many places I believe you are refering to friction tape used by electricians. This was used to prevent chafing and because there is very li...

Re: Restoration questions

Well you have a rather LARGE list of questions I will attempt to respond to from my experience. 1. On the firewall flange The wraparound or boot cowl as it is sometimes refered to is riveted to the firewall flange. The top and bottom engine cowls are secured to the firewall flange/wraparound with a ...

Re: Do you wish you had more storage space accessible from the front seat?

Dick-

Your image link is bad and the picture will not display.

Can't understand why FLICKR will not work for you.

Email it to naa-bb@celinaux.com and I will see it gets up if you can't edit the link.

Re: Champ Empty Weight help needed

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I understood the factory weighed the production model they certified with the FAA and every airplane after that had the same basic weight and appliances were calculated and added on. That is why the empty weight from the factory is so hard to duplicate as ...

Re: Champion 7JC Owner Died N610WA

Bob- I have asked the auction company, asked the executor of the estate, tried every avenue to ascertain where it went and have nothing. Unless you were there and saw them load it up I don't know who else to turn to. That registration can sit for a couple of years canceled before they have to file a...

Re: Radio Antenna Help

Well that's a fine piece of test equipment. I am comfortable with a Bird Truline wattmeter that you turned the sampling element forward or reverse. The meter has a FUNCTION and POWER position. Each seems to have Forward or Power and Reflected or SWR. Are you sure the meter was calibated and operated...

Re: Hooker Bolt-in shoulder harness set for Chiefs available

Nearly everyone was at the 19th Biennial Convention so this may take awhile to get an answer. There have been several threads here and elsewhere that have pictures of how others have conquered the attachment issue in Chiefs. Bill Pancake had an attachment he fabricated to solve the problem. I am a b...

Re: A65 cylinder cooloing baffles

Going from memory and at my age that has proved falable, but the inner cylinder baffles the large is on the bottom and the small piece is on the top. Air entering the front is directed to the top of the engine and the rear baffling forces it to be directed down through the cooling fins. The large in...

Re: Restoration questions

David- Lots of good questions that I can't clearly respond to. The brain trust is assembled in Middletown for the next two days so give it a couple of days before someone can respond adequately. The friction tape has been painted with various products from varnish to poly-tak Wag-Aero has those fabr...

Re: Radio Antenna Help

Justin- Typically the antenna lead has a male BNC connector and most SWR meters have an SO-239. That would require a BNC to PL-259 adapter. So if you are inserting it between your radio and the antenna, and the SWR meter has SO-239 input connectors, your would need two adapters and a coax jumper wit...
