Re: Prop hub snap ring

I neglected to state that the engine is a Continental A 65 with a tapered shaft . I see in the exploded view that the snap ring (number 19) is the last to go on. That is the answer to my question. I received the prop hub nut, key, snap ring and the saftey bolt and nut in a zip lock bag along with th...

Prop hub snap ring

The Pietenpol air camper I bought was disassembled. I am in the process of putting it back together. One area not cover by the plans is putting the propeller hub back on the engine. My problem is with the snap ring and the prop hub locking nut. I found an article by Bob Gehring on how to remove and ...

Thank you for your reply. I have the plans clipped to a hard board to keep from unrolling and rolling them up when I use them. Under the clip I found the sheet numbers in the upper right corner. I was looking in the lower right. I feel dumb. I have 1 through 7 sheets. I am missing the plans for the ...

Re: Bracing for the flying strut

Thanks for your reply. Is the tabs that hold the jury struts to the wing bolted through the wing spar? I am going to have to cut an opening in the bottom of the wing covering to get at it. Looks like learning baseball stich and patching is in my future. Thanks again.

Bracing for the flying strut

I bought a Pietenpol Air camper project that is about 80% complete. While looking at photos of flying Pietenpols on this site I have noticed two vertical and a horizontal bracing about half way between the fuselage and the flying strut fittings. The two up right braces go from the struts two the bot...
