AFTER THAT ; Within the next 25 hours the Service Bulletin must be complied with (install covers/doubler and inspect spar caps). A...

Re: 15AC ACS - Spar Intergranular Corrision

I have ordered the tooling for the covers and doublers. Also enough covers and doublers for 50 airplanes so far. 4-6 weeks for the tooling; 6-8 weeks for the parts to be delivered. (Now all I need is a ton of rivets to go along with the kits.) I have also ordered 300 lbs each of the spar cap angles;...

Re: 15AC ACS - Spar Intergranular Corrision

I would like to say here and now that I was mistaken about the role that the "person north of Anchorage" played in this situation. Their interest, I have since discovered, was "genuinely the safety and continued airworthiness of the Sedan wing". I was also mistaken about their wanting to sell the bo...

Re: 15AC ACS - Spar Intergranular Corrision

First of all, I would like to thank one and all for their support in this situation and the armchair second-guessing of "who is responsible; who's going to make"all the money"! This is going to turn into at least a $30,000-$40,000.00 mess that was started by someone who wanted to sell a $250.00 "bor...

Re: Routing of Fuel Valve Control

The fuel valve control handle that you use to operate the valve is piloted by the 3-547 Engine Control Box Assembly that is mounted to the left side panel. It is possible for the handle rod/tube length to rub on the panel. The panel is mounted on the forward end by sheet metal screws to the airframe...

Champ/Chief nose tank fuel valve discrepency

This is urgent! It looks like I am going to need some feedback; the more the better...... I seems that there is an error in the original data (drawing) on the thread size that is in the nose tank outlet fitting. According to the drawing, the 1-2403 valve, in that location, is 1/2" tube with compress...

Re: Update on Champ and Chief Valves

All of our valves are designed to fit as a direct replacement for your existing, old, leaking Imperial valves. All of the fittings from your old valves, if serviceable, can be reused and installed onto the new valves. The wing tank valves come with a new mounting plate that is identical to the origi...

I will w...
