We're making steady progress on the Skycoupe project.
Saturday morning the fabric on the fuselage was removed in preparations
for a cleanup of the fuselage before recovering.
Niels did a superb job of removing the aluminum leading edges from the
wings. Next we'll be making some minor repairs to the wings and
preparing it for covering.
Terry has done a good job with the engine, any now we need a few parts
to get it running. Before our group spends money, we'll call on the
membership for donations of parts you may have.
We need the following:
1. Propeller, fixed-pitch, metal, fits Lycoming 6-whole flange for O-290
engine, diameter range 72"-74", pitch range 48"-52".
2. Starter for Lycoming O-290. We have a Delco-Remy starter, model
number 1109657, S/N 21180, 12 volt. Can anyone rebuild such old units,
or have a newer one that they'll donate?
There will be plenty more items we will need, stay tuned.
