Primer-Original on the Culver Cadet
« on: November 02, 2013, 07:27:11 PM »
I have a C85-12F that was installed in my Culver LFA. The primer was completely removed at some point. What manufacturer made the original primer? A mixture control, installed in the original primer location, has been disconnected. The carburetor is a Stromburg NAS3A1. Is there a thought as to why the mixture was disconnected? I understand that below about 5,000 feet the mixture is really not necessary. I fly over mountains above 5,000 feet.

I have purchased an old Imperial Brass and a Lunkenheimer primer that I will need to have nickel plated. The primers are appropriate for the production date of February 1942. I don't know if these are original to the Culver Cadets, but they were certainly used on other aircraft during this time. This is part of a long range change to the panel several years down the road.
