Great Site for Piston Engine Information

Mechanicsupport.com
I have never met Mr. John Schwaner. But I have admired his work for many years. We all owe a debt of gratitude to John for maintaining one of the most comprehensive web-pages on the subject of piston engines. His information is useful to aircraft owners, pilots, mechanics, and anyone interested in engine maintenance and safety. If you don't have time to look though his blog right now, you'll regret it later if you don't tag it as a bookmark. Take a glance and you'll see what I mean.

Taylorcraft Open Cowl Photos

Here's a little design assistance to restorers of Pre-war Taylorcraft BC-series airplanes who want to retain the "Open cowl" appearance.

The attached report contains detailed photographs of this installation.

Drawings Available for Taylorcraft BC Baffles

Certified Aeronautical Products announces the availability of FAA approved drawings for Taylorcraft BC-series Engine Baffles (enclosed cowl type). With parts currently not being supplied by the factory or by another entity like Wag Aero, or Univair, Taylorcraft restorers are being forced to deal with repairs and patchwork of their existing baffles. In some cases the baffles do not exist with some Taylorcraft project airplanes. C.A.P. in an effort to assist owners with this problem have developed a set of drawings that may be used to re-make or repair their engine baffles. We provide the 12-page drawing and FAA-DER approval for your airplane for $ 75.00.

Here's what one of our customers had to say.

Terry,
I received your drawings and notes on January 15. I am pleased and believe they will work out well. For perspective, an IA friend of mine got some PMA'd baffles, from Univair I believe, for his Champ to complete a re-built engine installation. Then he spent a week modifying and installing them. I fully expect to do some tweaking but having a good starting point is important.
I would be happy to tell others about your work. Maybe a note on the Taylorcraft site would be appropriate if it's ok with you.
Thanks for your help!

Sincerely ,
George W.

NOTICE: At the time of this posting (01/19/2011) the drawing does not contain instructions for fabrication of the large rear baffle. This is to be added in the future. So for the current time being, we are offering this complimentary reference copy of Gilberti drawing # G-118 Rev. A. This drawing does not give all of the dimensions, but does provide a general representation of the overall contours.
