As an employee of a so-called Major airline That is in bankruptcy, with no hope of a pension (I,m venting), we use a MEL, minimum equpitment list and a CDL, component deviation list for nonworking or removed items. I guess my question is does the TC holder have a document that would allow the operat...

Joe, I,ve looked pretty close at all of the parts and can,t find any clues. The planes were purchased from a museum, and they have no record of who donated them. The fabric is removed and no data plates were included. The engine mounts are there but no engines. The only lead that I am tring to follo...

Thanks Joe, this early paperwork and parts are tough to find. Hopefully I can find the paperwork. It would be a shame to part out the planes, both are very complete. Paul Agaliotis

Two new projects

I just bought two project aircraft and need to find some paperwork for them. The first is a pre-war Chief, from the 5pc cowling it looks to be a 50C or 65C. The second is a Tandem, the throttle cable installation indicates it is a 1940 vintage. You can reach me @ (408)683-4751. Thank You Paul Agalio...

Bob, a good tail wheel is available from Aviation Products in Ojai, CA. It,s not certified but works very well. Alot of the Pitts crowd uses them. They are about $240 direct or slightly higher from Aircraft Spruce. If I was going to do a 337 on any tailwheel, it would be this one. If you would like ...

The C series crankcase has a larger index hole for the cylinders than the A series. The A65 cylinders will bolt down but have no support on the lower skirt section of a C series crankcase. If a starter is needed I would look for an A65-9 engine or change over to a C75 or C85-12. Paul Agaliotis

The Delrin needle requires a weight to be added to the float,perhaps this was not done. I belive it is covered in a Service Letter. Paul Agaliotis

You are correct, there is 1 cable going to the trim crank mechanism. The elevator has a spring hooked to a rectangular plate,which is connected to the trim cable. This spring provides the tension for the trim cable system. The rectangular plate has a diagonal slot in which the trim tab push rod is c...
