TOPIC: Want PA-11 cowling on a J3

Want PA-11 cowling on a J3 3 months 3 weeks ago #863

Hello! HELP!

Member since 2016 but this is my first forum post. (Member # 20129 Kim Kovach)

I've built several airplanes from scratch and I do lots of aircraft restoration work. Attached pic is me flying one of my restorations.



At the moment, I'm completing my very first J3. It's actually a clip wing. I am replacing the 65HP with an 85 and want to put a PA-11 pressure cowling on it. This has got to be one of those questions that come up over and over again, but as I said earlier, I'm new!

So, does anyone have any advice on this? Does not seem as though it's a "bolt-on" item as I understand the PA-11 has a different thrust line.... none the less, I've heard that lot's of people have made this work.

Looking forward to your guidance.

Thanks! Kim.

We have one on the field but he wants to change it back.

I think I have PA-11 drawings available in the cowl area if you are interested.

Hey! Thanks! You and I must be the only ones on here!

I have an entire cowling coming from Univair...... Just need to make the required changes (what ever they are) to make it fit. Let me see what I get when I get it and I'll let you know on the drawings. I appreciate your offer very much! My biggest question is how to mount it. I don't know what attachment methods or brackets might be required. Thanks a whole bunch for now! Kim
