Cowling help needed
I purchased a 1940 Stinson 10 this spring & am in the middle of a complete restoration. Engine (LYCOMING O235) overhaul complete and time to begin the airframe. My first big challenge is cowling. Can anyone identify what this cowling is? The 337's from the 50's are not detailed enough for me to determine. They do not look the same as other Stinson 10's out there.
This cowling is beyond repair for me to be happy with, so I want to purchase new. I also need a new boot cowl; assume this will need to be fabricated?
Sorry I didn't reply sooner! The nose bowl looks like it's from an early Piper. The STC also says that and Aircraft Spruce sell them. The openings look to have been altered to fit the Stinson grills. The rest of the cowl is hand made as would be the boot cowl.
There are some pictures of the cowl I made in my resto blog from a few years ago.
@ecos36gmail-com Thank you! My airplane was converted pre-STC so I'll pull that and get a part number. I'm pretty sure I've seen bowl you are talking about.
