Re: A-75 rings

Fresno Air Parts should have the A-75 parts you need. The 40577 pistons used in the A-75 have 3 rings and a small piston pin diameter, .859. The ring set will be the same. A-75 cylinders are different than A-65 by the use of Stellite components in the valve gear. Connecting rods are different by the...

Re: PHOENIX Activities

Richard,

I think its Arizona Air Salvage. I bought a few things from them. Always an interesting yard.

Re: PHOENIX Activities

Check and see if the Museum at Tucson is open. Marana has some aviation stuff always going on. Chandler had a Confederate Air Force group there. Sometimes you can find Joe A at Deer Valley. There is an Insurance salvage yard thats fun to see. Quite a bit to do there.

Re: Lycoming O235

There are a lot of installations of the disc brakes. The later aircraft were equipt with them and should be a minor alteration to adapt them to your aircraft.

Re: Lycoming O235

I don't recall anyone with a Franklin in one. You would need one of the bigger ones like the Franklin O-200 or larger.

Re: Spinner and bracket for ‘41 65CA

The skull caps as Richard pointed out only cover the bolts and hub of the propeller. Most of the aviation supply's have them. The complete spinner that is about 10" in diameter is available from members associated with this type club. It might require a cowling modification for installation. Paul

Re: Continental 0170 A-65-8 Engine Compression Test

Minimum I use is 60psi. I will use the compression check to track a trend on a decaying cylinder. I won't condemn the cylinder for a single low reading, I watch it over time to see the decaying trend.

Re: Mounting a set of domed hub caps,

Gordon,

It sounds like you have Cleveland or Goodyear wheels. The Cleveland will have three holes just O/B of the bearing that a dust cap secures to. There will
be a 10/24 hole to secure the hub cap. If Goodyear, the only hub caps would be the stock hubcaps and they are not embossed.

Re: Fuel gauge repair

Sounds like you have the Champion wing tank gauge. It uses two paper gaskets and the gauge is in the fuel.

Re: Which exhaust for 65TC with a C-85-12

Jerry,
I copied the stock exhaust. Used Taylorcraft head pipes and made my muffler around the back if the engine, with the heat muff from a Luscombe 8A. The exit comes out at near the stock location.

Re: 7AC w/Lycoming 0-235C1 for 0-320 ?

The FAA will want to know the purpose for the modification before they approve a special issuance certificate. Experimental don't meet the FAR's and are issued the Experimental certificate. The Aeronca meet's the FAR's so you would need to approach it from a different angle. Installing an O-320 woul...

Re: 7AC w/Lycoming 0-235C1 for 0-320 ?

Moving the aircraft into Experimental is tougher than you might think. They're just not going to let you bolt a PT-6 on the airframe with-out some kind of justification. You might want to consider a later model Citabria like a 7KCAB or GCAA for the power you need. The 7AC will perform just as these ...
