Turning point in the project today, I actually started INSTALLING parts, rather than removing them!

Well, I finally got the gear legs and wheels on. Next tail wheel install, then I will have a rolling chassis.

Engine lift point advice.

I'm pulling the F150 from the Red parts plane this weekend. I tried reading through the Franklin manuals I have, but couldn't find any info.

Can I get some advice about how to attach the engine hoist to the engine for best results? I saw this in a recent post.

I got the engine off using 4 eyebolts 5/16" with 18 course thread. Then I used a 2x10 and a 2x4 to make a cradle to set the engine into.

Got my floorboards back from Anodizing today and I could not be more happy with the way they came out!

Long way from Wood, to paper patterns, then cutting the diamond plate to the finished product.

New clips with nut plates to hold them down and rubber strips between them and the tubes.

Wow. Those look freaking awesome, Will.

 

Are you (or are stock stinsons) able to remove the floor once the plane is assembled? I'm wondering this for my own plane too but I have not done a test. I'd love to have a set of checkerplate floors for wet weather flying.

I'm also starting to assemble some things.  So satisfying!

Yes the floors are removable. They are exactly the same "Footprint" of the original wooden floorboards and I think they will be better attached than the original.
