Culver General Discussion / Fabric work
« Last post by Woody on November 18, 2017, 04:42:33 PM »
  Hi Everyone,
    We have been working at a steady pace on the fabric work on the Culver.  Life sometimes gets in the way but we continue on. We are finished with everything but the fuselage. That is starting this next week.  I still have a bulkhead to place and install. When that is finished, we will start the assembly.  Spring time is looking really good right now!  Keep at it as it has taken me several years to get to this point!

SN 117 is back in the air,  unable to attach picts for some reason...good first flight since 7 year restoration.  3 hours on it now and getting it dialed in.  Full flight report in a few weeks.

   Hi Bill,
      Why don't you use a 90 HP Franklin which was used on the Culver at times.  They are available and not as expensive as some of the others.  I just thought, I have one for sale and engine mount also. I had forgotten I had them. Engine mounts are no trouble from my experience.  Woody

Thanks Andreas,

I did watch that lovely video of the two of you flying out of Kiel (?).  I think that might have to be a destination for an expedition next year!

Maintenance and Repair / C85 engine.
« Last post by Bill Geipel on September 28, 2017, 09:44:44 AM »
Has anyone done a C85 engine conversion from the Franklin. My engine may be gone so am considering options.
Specifically where do I locate engine mount and is there anything else that is troublesome.

Thank you
