    yea Glenn, fix (cross) those wires! He won't need new wires. We crossed the incorrect straight
    landing wires on the "new" 16B at Rhinebeck when it was reassembled.and if he had a Kinner
    engine, he cou...

    Lindbergh never used the periscope. Sitting in the Spirit at Rhinebeck, you have the two good
    sized windows on each side and you are sitting pretty far back such that you actually have a
    very good fie...

    Piper didn't originally mount an inclinometer on the J-3. The reason was to develop pilots who
    could tell they were not in coordinated flight by the yawing of the aircraft only. The aircraft
    has taugh...

    The key off my A65 is 2 1/4" long x 3/8" wide x 1/4" thick

    This O-170-7 data plate is interesting with the 65 rated hp / 2300 rpm but 75hp rating / 2675

    Beech-Roby?

    Scott used to advertise these drum gauges for J-3s. This is from Jan 1946. Apparently not very
    popular. Hard to beat the simplicity of the wire and cork float.

    It's a military engine, the W535 AC-36506 is the contract number.Not sure what the T150318 5
    indicates, it's most likely the manufacturers serial number. What block is it stamped in? Is
    the T really a...

    Thanks, Dave! So fuel enters through the top of the Tillotson cap, rather than opposite the
    outlet, through the firewall?No, the fuel inlet port through the firewall is opposite the fuel
    outlet port t...

    A couple of LaTour bowls, note the one is fractured. I'm the sure decals lasted about 20
    seconds once the gas hit them. Also, a sheet of instructions was folded up inside of one of the
    bowls.I never h...
