Re: exhaust pipes - cutting lower cowling

I was lucky - the guy's shop is close to the KCOI. Ronny Waddell. Said he used to make piper & velocity exhausts. Saw some other projects - everything looked pretty jamm-up good.

Re: exhaust pipes - cutting lower cowling

I ended up getting 2 sets of wagaero stainless stacks. all 4 had "variations". a bunch of trips to a nearby machine shop that really know their crap. Both pipes had to be cut near cowling exit. Had to add about an inch - slightly wedge shaped. Avoided cutting the cowl. The flanges fit perf...

The holes for the pipes (n my cowling) are very close to the drawing dimensions. I have seen other aeronca's that have those holes cut up. Is this a common issue? ...

The crankshaft (pn530196A 1) was inspected and re-worked at Aircraft Specialties Services . They said it was in good shape, met tolerances but unfortunately the ...

Having problems getting the no-blo's past the adjoining cylinders (1 interferes with 3; 2 with 4). The only solution I see is to trim the edge of the no-blo's. Any thoughts,...
