thanks, I have a picture, and with the door open and looking at it from outside it appears to be about the 10 O Clock position.
Is that similar to yours?
The dreaded Purple Stain. It is usually caused by bird droppings and there is nothing I know that can take it out. It is one reason I have gone to Polyurethanes over Polytone.
I can get you some photos in the next few hours. I have one in the shop.
I have to reattach (weld) the inside handle back onto the lower door of my J3.
Anyone have a good picture of the location/ angle it should be positioned onto the shaft?
No 192 arrived here ok. Well worth the price of admission. Thanks.
Gook luck to Jamie as an LPN. Good the RN is next.
I have some dark stains (like drops) on my yellow pain. I think these were caused by condensation dripping on the fuselage from the hanger when it was really dusty at one time or that is my best theory. I have tried:
- rubbing compound
- Mothers metal polish
According to the Continental Maintenance Manual there is only about 3lbs difference between the C85-12 and the O-200 basic engines. Accessories such as standard vs lightweight starter and generator could easily offset that. Another possible consideration is the fact that the C85-12 is a specified item on the Type Certificate for the J4A, whereas the O-200 is not. Perhaps there is an STC for installing the O-200? Or you could use a C85-12 modified with the O-200 crankshaft etc and have much the same power output. That engine modification is STC'd.
Of course, at the moment I just happen to have a C85-12 engine that I will sell, if that's the way you decide to go.
Hope this helps, Bill
