Avia Economia, Part 2 by [email protected]

instrument panel material by jan olieslagers[_2_]
What is the typical material for an instrument panel? Soft steel sheet, I should think? What thickness? Have I understood some designs have the panel as an integral part of the fuselage, contributing to its strength/stiffness? But that would be fibre (epoxy/carbon) planes, no? TIA,

An examination of Table 7-10 of the AC shows head silhouettes; not diameters, just shapes. Most of these rivets appear to have the universal head shape (MS20470), but come in...

Lycoming O-235 dimensions question by cavelamb himself[_4_]
Regarding the Lycoming O-235, O-290D and O-290D2... Lycoming says the engine is 29.06 inches long. But does that include the mags? Or just to the accessory case? Does someone have one handy that they might check on that? Appreciate it.

A Simple Auto Engine Conversion by [email protected]
I was thumbing through a catalog from Speedway Motors. They advertise a magneto-type distributor. Assuming you didn't come across a thrashed race engine with magnetos, couldn't someone put together an engine worthy of aircraft use, by simply 1) ordering an aftermarket engine with fuel injection,...

Looks like our old friend Paul is at it again. Reminds me a lot of the contractor-guy in that movie "The Money Pit". (When will my house be done? Oh, in about two weeks!) Right. And Jerry Lewis said that we were only a few years away from a cure for MD. That was in 1977. At least the reporter...
