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

I know this is a old post but does anyone have some know how? pics? or any info on the installation and kit they used to put the Y shoulder harness in their Pre War Aeronca? I have a 1941 65CA and would like to install these.

tach/hourmeter

I am looking to add a hour meter and possibly a tach built together, (mostly a hour meter) to my Aeronca, I do not have any electrical on the plane so I'm limited. Is there a tach I can replace mine with that will turn in the correct direction as mine does now to keep up with this? I want the hour m...

Re: CA 65 Trim crank

Anyone am I correct on the fact the pointer turns in the opposite direction that the crank does? Also just want to know if my plate is on in the right direction which way is towards the front of aircraft.

Re: CA 65 Trim crank

Problem I'm having is when you turn it to nose up it's nose down then I found it had a indicator or pointer and went to plane this evening and saw it turns in opposite direction that the crank. I'm trying to figure out which direction the plackard points towards the front of the aircraft.

I'm thinking it goes to the ground, frame, engine or both? From wha...

Re: CA 65 Trim crank

Thanks we're getting somewhere now. Can you help me to understand how to look up the drawings on the disc I got when I joined? I want to see the mechanism or complete crank, I would like to see pics of top and bottom of it.
