Rudder swap?

Post by shorty »

Not being familiar with the post war Aeroncas, I have a question.
How different is the rudder on an 11AC, as opposed to a Champ of the same vintage?

I ask because, It would be nice to be able to swap rudders, while the one from the 11 AC is being repaired, (hanger rash).
Thanx

I'm not personally sure of the correct answer here but there are probably more than one depending on the engines installed. I feel equally sure that MikeB and Paul will provide some insight on this and probably others too.

Shorty,
The rudders should interchange with no problem.

As Paul said they should interchange as the part number for both is 4-545. I noticed WA listed another part number as 4866 which also complies with SB19 (rudder pin bushings if I remember correctly).

MikeB,

You are correct. I recently purchased the 4886 part from WA and it fits like a glove.
