This is for a Franklin engine.  The engine mount is in excellent shape, primed and ready for paint.
 I also have metal straps for the attachments to the firewall if needed.  There may also be other metal parts.
Send me your needs and I'll see what we have.

 I have a rebuilt Franklin 90 engine that came with the plane which was original engine and prop.  The plane is all there with the original log books also.  I'm so cramped in my garage and hopefully in a week or two I will start with the fabric on the wings at the hanger.  I hope to paint each wing as the fabric is finished.  That should make for a better paint job using Airtex paint.  It cost more but the finished product just looks better!  Woody

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.

  Hi Mark,
  My unit came with a Sensenwich 70 x 54  I was told it cruised at 130.  I'm still not flying yet but by middle of summer I should be in the air.  Just about to start fabric work.  Buying new will be 5 grand.  I just put one on the Mooney Mite that was $4700.

Thank you! It's a halogen landing light mounted right at the camber line with a thick, molded lexan cover. Very handy. I can't recall the lumens but it is incredibly bright.

I'm pleased to announce N34855 has a new owner who is a big aviation enthusiast and will get great usage out of the plane. It may be moving to Arizona to live in a little dryer climate than Southern California.

I used the cold month here to rebuild the instrument panel of N24R. The old one had a couple of unused cutouts and scratches and didn’t look very nice any more. Furthermore I decided to switch back from an electric tachometer to a mechanical one. Due to the self made arrangement of the instruments in the old panel the mechanical one didn’t fit. I tried to make it as original as possible, but of course I had to make some more cutouts than the original panel came with. The “extras” are for the voltmeter, the CHT indicator (I really appreciate to have one), the manifold pressure, the small compass and the ones for COM and XPDR.
I also reupholstered the dashboard. The old crumbly carpet was replaced by synthetic leather.
If anybody is looking for a suitable COM or XPDR I can recommend the Trig TY91 and TT21. They both have a small remote control unit that easily fits the Culver panel. The real radio/XPDR unit is mounted under the seat back in the baggage compartment.
