Re: Time To Go Flying

I think Bob was refering to being isolated from the COVID-19 virus. Hope you are well Bob, staying inside except to fly, and avoiding people at the airport. I leave my garage and park on the far side of my hangar so I'm not seen. Pull the plane out, fly my 1/2 and hour, put the plane away, and drive...

Re: Lycoming O235

Hudson- Best solution is to buy a used or damaged dynafocal mount and then adapt it to the Champ firewall. The welding is fairly straight forward for anyone with gas or TIG welding experience. You can use the Buzz Wagner mount drawing as a reference. It was for an O-235-C1 engine, which used conical...

Re: Aeronca Champ Restoration for the Non A&P

Re: What Carb Air Box for Aeronca TC with C85

Jerry-

Look to AC 23-27 for guidance
https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/med ... _23-27.pdf
