Culver General Discussion / Re: What Prop do you use
« Last post by Keith U. on March 19, 2017, 09:38:16 AM »
Just bought a Sensenich W70A-54, the cruise prop for the Continental A-75.  Hope to be flying this summer.  6 week lead time, wich is fine, have a few details to work out, oil cooler plumbing, brakes and cowling etc etc etc.

  Hi Mark,
  My unit came with a Sensenwich 70 x 54  I was told it cruised at 130.  I'm still not flying yet but by middle of summer I should be in the air.  Just about to start fabric work.  Buying new will be 5 grand.  I just put one on the Mooney Mite that was $4700.

Thank you! It's a halogen landing light mounted right at the camber line with a thick, molded lexan cover. Very handy. I can't recall the lumens but it is incredibly bright.

I'm pleased to announce N34855 has a new owner who is a big aviation enthusiast and will get great usage out of the plane. It may be moving to Arizona to live in a little dryer climate than Southern California.

Culver General Discussion / Re: New Panel
« Last post by Unwichtig54 on February 17, 2017, 01:49:37 PM »
Hi,
I used the cold month here to rebuild the instrument panel of N24R. The old one had a couple of unused cutouts and scratches and didnít look very nice any more. Furthermore I decided to switch back from an electric tachometer to a mechanical one. Due to the self made arrangement of the instruments in the old panel the mechanical one didnít fit. I tried to make it as original as possible, but of course I had to make some more cutouts than the original panel came with. The ďextrasĒ are for the voltmeter, the CHT indicator (I really appreciate to have one), the manifold pressure, the small compass and the ones for COM and XPDR.
I also reupholstered the dashboard. The old crumbly carpet was replaced by synthetic leather.
If anybody is looking for a suitable COM or XPDR I can recommend the Trig TY91 and TT21. They both have a small remote control unit that easily fits the Culver panel. The real radio/XPDR unit is mounted under the seat back in the baggage compartment.

Looks nice, good luck with the sale!
A landing light?  That must be nice!  Is it mounted in the cowl?  I have only 1 hour of night flight and 1 night landing in my Cadet.  The landing took two attempts with the last 20' of decent in pure darkness, it sure seemed like the runway was several feet lower than the runway lighting...

Parts Wanted / Re: A-75 Exhaust, Oil Cooler and Long Neck Oil Tank etc.
« Last post by Bill Poynter on January 24, 2017, 07:28:07 PM »
My last LCA had a modified Ercoupe exhaust.  The tailpipes had been modified to exit the cowl in the correct location and angle.  The best part is that they were stainless.  The downside was having to fabricate heat muffs.  Ercoupe engine baffles work well too.

Thanks, Champ/Chief exhaust does not fit.   I have the drawings and might just have them made.  The std. A-65 for Champ fits the engine, but curves in the wrong place.
