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.

Just bought a Sensenich W70A-54, the cruise prop for the Continental A-75.  Hope to be flying this summer.  6 week lead time, wich is fine, have a few details to work out, oil cooler plumbing, brakes and cowling etc etc etc.

Thanks, Champ/Chief exhaust does not fit.   I have the drawings and might just have them made.  The std. A-65 for Champ fits the engine, but curves in the wrong place.

Maintenance and Repair / Re: Aileron freeplay

Tim,
That seems like way too much slop.  I just rigged my ailerons, can't say for sure, but don think there is 1/4" total.  I wonder about your bushings.  Missing one or two would make a big difference.  Also maybe they are just worn, or the bolts.  Try replacing both at a hinge point one at a time and I bet you will find the culprit.  Also check the jam nut on the push rod going to the aileron.  That much slop makes me nervous...Keith

Hello,
1)Looking for A-75 exhaust for my LCA, or will something off the shelf work like from a Chief or other Continental?
2) Need Lower Mount Oil cooler and adapter for A-75, Continental #3883 and #3875
3) Long neck oil tank to fit through LCA motor mounts
4) Cooling Baffles for same engine.  Anything off the shelf?
Thanks for any information.
Keith

My version of Bill's stands.  They work well enough, engine hoist for insurance.  did not want to build crooked horses so just blocked up one side to account for the dihedral.

4 hours and not done yet, trouble with aft spar attach bolt clearance to fuselage skin, hopefully trimmed and done this week.  3 bolts per side, and not a lot of wiggle room.
