Re: The Restoration of N2120E

The old formers and strings were showing there age, so I've been making new. A 2x4 sheet of 1/4" mahogany will do, but I hope to extend the baggage, hence the 4x4 sheet. I used both left and right sides to lay out the formers to use the new plywood efficiently, but used only one side to trace out th...

Re: Engine stands

There's a bunch of different ways to skin this cat. An automotive stand will work fine, you might need longer tubes and threaded rod to attach it. We just did this for an A-65 on display at the Peachstate museum. Another option is to build a square base out of wood with casters, big enough for the m...

Re: Factory Fuselage Assembly

Well bummer, but I figured that was the case. Thanks for the help! The idea of keeping out moisture and oxygen is great, but unless your welder is high class with a purge function, or you have access to a vacumme chamber; both will make it into the frame. Especially after a field repair.... of which...

Factory Fuselage Assembly

Those that have cut open frames; did Aeronca drill holes in the longerons at the clusters? In other words, if I flood the frame with ACF-50 or linseed oil, will it creep everywhere, or do need to drill every tube?

Re: Brakes on the Right, any ideas?

I'd get in touch with Don Jones. He can get them cast, like was done for the Scott diaphragm master cylinders.

Re: Go Pro Camera Strut Mount

I've used a RAM Mount shaped like a "V" with a hose clamp. It was a mount ACSpruce sold to use on a Beachcraft yoke. Worked like a champ!

Re: Question about cracking paint....

That jives, assuming its dope. Sand the crack down to silver, get some rejuvenator on a rag and rub it into the crack. It will loosen the silver and you can carefully blend the two sides of the crack together. Be gentle and try not to create plow marks in the soft paint. Then bring it back up throug...

Re: Going to Sun N Fun 2013?

Flyin or drivin? We're blasting out 9am for LAL via Montgomery, AL in a pair of CarbonCubs.

I'll be down all week hoping rides in the biplane off the grass, so I'll try to see you guys at the type club tent during the airshow.

Re: spark plugs ??

Pics are worth a thousand words... Champion makes the M41E's and that's the only plug in production (that I know of) made for unshielded aircraft ignition. And the plug is made to accept the both clamp and spade leads. What kind of Mags do you have? M41E vs. REM40E http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/...

Re: spark plugs ??

99% sure you're looking for M41E plugs. I'd have to pull the TCDS to be certain. I know we ran them in a buddy's Lyc powered J-3.
