  1. Gents,

    Recently having purchased several Avid components to complete my project, I am posting items for sale that I don’t need at this time prior to posting to Barnstormers.

    Hoping these parts can help one of you get a jump on the upcoming flying season!

    Located in San Diego, CA - shipping / transport options can be discussed. I prefer to sell everything bundled at $2400.

    Thanks for your interest and feel free to reply to this thread or PM directly.  

    Happy New Year!

    STOL Wing Set $1750

    Age and tank construction unknown, they will require ribtail repairs, thorough inspection and new covering at minimum. Flaperons will not be included.

    Fiberglass Cowling Set $350

    Excellent condition, ready for trim, finish and paint.  Appears to be the same fit as my Model C.


    Wing Struts $225

    Will need some reconditioning.


    Tow-Bar $75

    Alternative to a trailer.


    Turtle Deck $125

    Typical used condition, some fastener hardware will be required.  Appears to match the size for Model C. 

  2. I'm looking for some fabrication ideas from the experts on the forum.  This may get a little long, so be warned...
    I am not the original builder of the Mangy Fox.  I am the re-bulder.  During the rebuild I fixed and reworked a lot of different problems with the plane.  One area where I just simply ran out of time was the firewall and cowling.  Both of these items really needed to be redone from scratch, but the clock was running out on me and I had to get the plane finished.  So here's my problem:
    The firewall does not seal to my cowling.  The fit is pretty terrible to be honest.  I thought I could overcome this issue by using silicone baffling flap material to make a seal covering the difference.  Well that didn't work worth a darn, so I'm back to the drawing board.
    In a long enough timeline, I want to completely redo the firewall forward on this plane with a new design engine mount and cowling.  Something following the design of the model 7SS type FWF.  I have room in the weight and balance to do this, but I'm not to the point of doing it just yet, so this will just be phase two of the bandaid.

    There is a crescent shaped gap between the top curved portion of the firewall and the cowl.  I started making a female template today of the outside of the installed cowl in order to get the shape and curve correct (or at least closer).  I plan on using this template to make a sheetmetal crescent to attach to the top of the firewall.  To the edge of this crescent I would like to attach a flange so that a "bulb seal" like this can be added to really seal the firewall to the cowl. 
    I'd like some opinions on this idea from the experts here, if I'm on a good track or if there's a better way of accomplishing what I want to achieve.
    Fire away with what ever brainstorms you may have!
  3. Brand new unused carb for sale. Was going to use for BMW conversion on my Avid but wound up going with a Jabiru 2200 and sold the BMW. Going through my airplane stuff and found this. Bing Model 64, ID# on the web is 64/32/395. Will work good for Jabiru or 912.
