Hello,
My first memo on my new cub project. I am looking for some wing ribs for a wooden spar 1946 Cub restoration. If any one has a lead please holler.
Thanks a lot!

Dick,

If you're thinking that someone just happens to have a full set of pristine Piper wood spar J3 ribs sitting around, your project will most likely be delayed. IF you happened to find a set, they will now be 65+ years old and likely need a "bit" of work, LOL ! ;)

Do yourself a favor and call Dakota Cub and order a set of new wood spar ribs. They are the only provider of PMA'd wood spar ribs.

My dad (cub specialist A&P) has a complete set of wing ribs for a wood spar. They are not pristine. But they are all repaired in a jig in accordance with AC-4313 and stronger than new.
