Hmm. I have a full set of wing ribs and spar blanks to sell that would fit well with the parts available from the OP. I built them. T88.

Dear Last of the Great Human Beings: (There were few of them to begin with)

Anyway what do you have for sale and what is the price. With the Pieces I have I can put together quite a package. Any photos. Cheers DAVE 415 563-4803 San Francisco, CA

Can you send me your e mail address I am having some difficulty with photos on this site. Have A fuselage, new fuel tank aluminum, new design landing gear with wheels tires and brake rotor, Two place stick assembly, rudder, and elevator leading and trailing edges, throttle quadrant, Old style landing gear not finished, nose bowl, wheel pans, io 520-540 engine mount. While Steen Areo does not have the first buyer on file, the fuselage looks to have been done in a jig most likely at the factory excellent welds on all parts. I'll get you the prices when you see the photos. I have them on excel and can forward that to you.

I am moving to a Super Cub build up. DAVE

I'll drag out the box and get some photos sometime right quick. I've been meaning to do that anyway. Someplace around here I've got the inventory of the spruce too. I bought it directly from Fred Tebb and sons in Tacoma before ACS monopolized their output. Give me a couple of days.

A couple of those emails had the same pictures. Will the nose bowl fit a io540?

They are built up from Steen Aero's kit. T88 weights for for glue pressure not staples. Routed edges for smoothness. I think they are spoken for at this point.

Are these the same parts that were listed on Barnstormers? The Guy that got them with the motorcycle purchase? Just curious, seems like a very similar list of stuff..

Yes however there were a number of parts that were unidentified we now have the full inventory of the parts. including an extra set of landing gear, the cabane, an IO540 engine mount rudder, leading and trailing edge of horiz stab. I am selling either as a whole or in parts which the first advitiser was not going to spend his time doing. in any event no sooner that I bought this I closed a deal on a super cub build up. So this one goes. DAVE

I have found a complete wing and airframe analysis (30 pages) that is evaluating for a 9g conversion. I am glad to send those to any one who wants them for copy cost and postage. When I have 3 or so its efficient to go to the copy shop. I have no intention of building a 9g ship.

Is the 540 engine mount a factory? Have any Rust? What's the best you can do on it? Would you wrap in paper and ship?


Thanks

No rust I could wrap and ship Given the cost and value probably better to build a wood box I have spare material and could do that. I don't want a 540 mount I want a dinafocal. I would like to take some detailed photos right after Christmas and could send those to you and we can figure out what works best for both of us. If this is not a factory assembly it is perfectly done. I will pay special attention to the welds in the photos. DAVE 415 563-4803
