Ohhh I like that cowl.

How do we see the story?

That’s beautiful 🥰

Engine is from Cherokee Six -260.

What cowling was used on this?

James Brocksmith is the link supposed to go to the article? It links but not to the article

1550 LBS empty weight…

A Cessna 180 with Stinson logo.

2550 lbs MTOW ? Type certificate calls for 2400 on wheels 2500 on floats. Experimental.

Yeah cool and all... BUT who of you caught the big typo on the cover? 😂

Another ignorant author disses 'cracking Franklin crankcases'. Enough already. An issue over 60 years ago. I think my case was changed in 1960. That skanky dog keeps following the Franklins, and authors love to throw around that comment whenever they write about Stinsons.

Couple of thoughts….to each their own but…I have a recently converted 108-2 with a 540. I feel it best to have a resto-mod style. It looks the part of the stinson but performs better. Further I like the larger style fairing gear legs, the old style cowl and grills and adding a few modern touches like a 6 cylinder cht/egt , fuel flow, etc. I’m not a fan of a three blade prop on the type. If I was building a strictly bush plane from the type I see it tho….just not me.

Don't mind the skinny legs, but it needs the cowl grills and original yokes IMO.

With a three bladed prop would you not need to adjust gear legs for prop clearance?

Although the airplane is experimental, I believe that the article said that the engine and tanks were stc'd. Whose STC? with the SA equivalent of the FAA?

Same old wing?

Have any of you float guys made acess hatches to be able to pull the landing gear pivot axle fwd to remove the main gear legs? Removing both seats and floor boards to pull the gear axle aft seems like a lot of work🙈 ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Marcus. I have little covers in the boot cowl that allows for access to the pivot axle and the associated cotter pin. I'm not sure if that may have been original or not. Perhaps someone can chime in as to whether they were there originally made or not. When I had the pivot axles out I tapped the front of the hollow axle to allow me to screw in a bolt adapted to the end of a slide hammer. I gently tap the axle out the front. There are other little nuances that I can tell you about if you contact me.
