Parts For Sale / Eisemann Mag Coil
« Last post by Tim Lunceford on January 04, 2019, 12:04:15 PM »
Hi everyone,  I had my Eisemann  magnetos overhauled recently but after a couple of hours the coil on one of them has failed.  Does anyone have a coil they would be willing to part with.    Tim

Thanks Tim, that sounds reasonable, might fly it another season before I get to it.  I am sure that changing the incidence would fix it.  Nothing is simple about this fix though...

Keith,  the first thing I did was blocked up the fuselage with the top longeron level.  I purchased five digital levels from Home Depot and used double face tape to attach the levels to the bottom of the wings at the
 roots and at the tips.  This showed me that the wings were one degree different.  It also showed that the individual wing had some twist in them.

I decided to lower the right wing 1/2 degree to start.  To accomplish this I removed the rear spar fittings on the right side. Calculated the amount that the rear spar had to move down to change the incidence.  Next step was to machine a bushing with the inside diamieter of the spar bolt.  The spar fitting were drilled slightly over size.  I elongated the holes in the spar fitting to get the proper distance in the spar plates and welded the bushings in.

Tim,
How did you change the incidence in the wing?  I am left wing heavy and really want to get to fly hands off.  I rigged and fussed with control rigging, its gotta be the incidence, not sure how to proceed.  thanks   Keith

That is the process that I used.  When this Cadet was restored the top longerons were replaced at the rear of the fuselage due to rot in that area.

Have you determined that the horizontal stab spar is actually out of square with the fuselage?  Try running a chalk line from the fuselage sides next to the cabin to the stab spar to check for squareness at the spar.
