I know they are hard to find, but am looking for a good set of HW75/10/10A yokes for my 1939 HW75. It looks as though someone put the 108 series yokes in during its lifetime. I just recently purchased it and would like to return it to original yokes if possible. Any and all help is greatly appreciate.
Good luck, I think my model 10 yokes look different than a HW-75, or maybe they look different than a model 10A. There may be more than just one yoke style.
How about some photos of your plane! Very few 105's around.
Thanks Michael. I appreciate the info. Learning curve was steep with my Fairchild PT-19 and even steeper with the Stinson 105. Love it though. It has the Lycoming O-290-D conversion as well. As soon as I figure out how to post pictures, I'll do so! Happy to share the new plane with other Stinson enthusiasts.
Michael, I posted some pics and video in the 105 forum. Check it out!
Ken Adams here, I recently bought a '39 105 project. It's about 75% complete. Wings are covered and painted, engine is fresh 0-290, fuselage is covered and needs coated, and interior is done except for a radio. I will post some pictures as soon as the site allows.
Alot of the exterior trim and faring pieces are rough. I'm hoping that you might know of some sources or resources for some old "little Stinson" parts.
Beautiful aircraft you have there.
Hope this finds you well.
Hello Ken! Looking forward to the pictures. From what I've found out, we seem to be in the minority of the Stinson owners. I think the numbers are something like only 200 of the HW75 were produced in 1939 and 1940. Then they quit making them as they focused on the 10 and 10a. I haven't found a good source, or for that matter even a source, for these parts but I keep digging. Maybe between the two of us, we can scare something up. In looking at a lot of my aluminum trim pieces, it appears as though some have been fabricated from new aluminum. Not what you like to hear, but reality unfortunately.
Anyway, looking forward to those pics.
I have a 10a parts manual and they switched to composite on some of the parts at one point... Not sure that would make things any easier, but it's an option.
