Culver General Discussion / Re: For you Culver guys

Good info, thanks Bill.  I just returned from delivering the engine for rebuilding so I'm already anticipating being in the air! I have a Flotarp 74-54 that came with the plane.  I was told that it was a bit aggressive and for climbing ??

Culver General Discussion / For you Culver guys

You guys that have already been through the process of restoring a Culver and are flying, don't forget us newbies that are struggling.  I for one need any data as best type of prop you are using for speed, climbing etc.  What to do that helps cruise speed?  What is old hat to some are desperately needed by others and we are a small group.  Anyone know of planes just sitting, stored parts, engine parts etc. You get the Idea. Money is also helpful so if anyone knows where some is ~~ PLEASE call me!   W

Culver General Discussion / Re: Franklin HP Engine?

 I just got home with a Franklin 90 that came with the plane.  It has been stored since 1964 and has 30 hours on it.  I did just like you but decided to stay original.  Depending on the condition of the engine, a lot of the parts are still available.  I just bought a Franklin 65 also in case the crank/cam was not good.  They carry the same crank from 65 through the 90. Delivered cost was very small.  Franklin has a real good reputation and is smoother than most others.
