Maintenance and Repair / LCA exhaust
« on: July 06, 2017, 02:31:21 PM »
To make the exhaust for my LCA,  I tried some off the shelf stacks from an Aeronca Chief, but did not like the exit point.  Rather than modify it, I took Service Memo #7 off from Bill's site, took some pvc, made a mock up and sent it to Dawley Aviation, Burlington, WI.  They tack welded a pair out of stainless steel, then sent to me to test fit.  All was good so they finished welded it.  Its as close to original as I could get.  The carb heat shroud is a modified Cessna part, the cabin heat is the same, but I am not real confident the cabin heat will work with out forced air.  Final length will be trimmed after cowling is fit.  Its been exhausting.

Maintenance and Repair / mounting the wings
« on: March 11, 2016, 08:21:35 AM »
My support stands are built, hoping to mount the wings soon.  Any words of wisdom to make it easy on my helpers?  It seems like I need an engine hoist and three people holding the wing and one inserting bolts.  Anything else?

Anyone have a door handle? I only need the exterior piece.  What car did this come off of?

Parts Wanted / Horizontal stab to fuselage fairing wanted
« on: August 29, 2014, 03:16:18 PM »
Does any one have a horizontal stab fairing from a Cadet that i could get a picture of, or pattern off of?  It is the forward fairing that wraps around the leading edge and extends to around the rudder horn area on top of stab.  Thanks.

Parts Wanted / Brake Master Cylinder
« on: June 18, 2013, 12:27:23 PM »
I still would like to find an original pair (or at least one) of brake master cylinders for a Culver LCA.
Does anyone have one they removed for upgrade?
Thanks,
Keith

Maintenance and Repair / Elevator push rod support tube
« on: April 20, 2013, 04:47:47 PM »
While cleaning out the old graphite, lube, and crud from the inside of the elevator push rod tube that is clamped into the center fuselage of  my Culver, the tubed cracked and is very brittle.  Anyone know what this is made of? It seems like some type of phenolic tube.  Has any one  replaced this with pvc or a modern material?

Maintenance and Repair / Horizontal Stab Bolt Holes, '41 LCA
« on: February 21, 2013, 11:55:52 AM »
I am just getting into my fuselage rebuild and while the woodwork generally seems in good shape, the forward horizontal stab mounting bolt holes in the fuselage are elongated, one even had a bushing in it.  It seems like a weak area.  Has anyone seen this or had any experience with this area?

Culver General Discussion / Culver Electrics
« on: January 28, 2012, 09:59:13 PM »
I am curious as to the variety and extent of electrical systems installed on your  Cadets.  I have a '41 LCA project.  I am pretty sure it didn't have any electrical system from the factory.  I am hoping to leave off the starter and generator, but have nav lights, and was wondering what battery setup or information I could find is being used.

Thanks for the great forum.
