Trade Wide Track FC gear with center bracket for Champ gear

I'm almost finished restoring N221R. I have it sitting on FC gear and it looks like a low rider! I would like to trade the FC gear with center bracket for some Champ gear. I would want the Champ gear to be serviceable. This is just the axles and center bracket. Mark 850-698-8159

streamline tailbrace wires

Does any body have a 337 for streamline tailbrace wires for a champ? Super Decathalon's use them. You would have to use four lower ones from a Super Decathalon or Citabria. They are the ssame lenght as the lower and upper Champs. Thanks Mark

Re: Wanted Carb airbox for 7AC

Can't help with the airbox, but maybe I can help on the windshield you need. I have been talking today with Mr. Bahn from Alaska who says they use Citabria windshields since they are 1/4 the price of 7AC windshields. The price he quoted was less than the shipping would cost if I sent my used Champ ...

7AC conv to 7DC stretch?

Hoping someone can shed somelight on this. I'm restoring a 7AC that was changed to 7DC back in 1961. There is 1" spacer blocks added between the firewall and the engine mount. 1" was also added to the cowling to make everything fit. I have read service letter #14 and don't see the 1" refered to.
