Figured it was time to start buckling down to start acquiring/looking for extra parts for the J-5.

Does anyone know of a source for a spinner for a 1941 J-5A, engine is a A-75-8 and the prop is a McCauley 1B90.

Also what is the part number for j-3 cowling rubbers?

Any thoughts on how to find a complete cowling (nose bowl, doors, upper and lower parts)? Or who to hire to fabricate?

Anyone have any books on the Bendix Scintilla SF4R-8 mags? The back of the Continental overhaul manual indicates that they are radio shielded and can take shielded plugs and wires? Anyone done this and know appropriate parts?

Ryan, I think you can get prop skullcaps from Wick's, Aircraft Spruce, Wag-Aero, and several other sources.

Have you considered building a fiberglas nosebowl from scratch?

The parts list called it a cowl rubber, its the rubber grommet that fits on the cowl bracket between the cowl clip and the cowling on the front. I couldn't find the part number listed in my book on the univair site and have had trouble finding them on spruce or wag.
