a 108 #193 will install a 160 HP engine and I need the drawings or plans of the STINSON RUDDER BUNGEE KIT, I have problems
to install it correctly, some help with this is possible, one of the arms hits the structure.

The drawing is available from Univair.  It is a large blueprint and does not lend itself to sending by email.  I probably have it but it is buried in my barn loft and I am no longer able to climb up there to try to find it.  I have not seen it for 20-30 years.

  I Installed the rudder bungee from a wrecked airplane in 1978 I do not remember details bit I did not do any welding. It works just fine.I did not have the drawing at that time.

From a practical standpoint, the rudder trim is never used even with the 180 hp engine.

@larry, happy to fly down and climb through and "Find" stuff for you!

Thanks, Will, but the barn I am referring to is in Indiana.  If I can get a grandson to make the climb, that would be preferred.

I will be going home to Texas in the next couple weeks.  Not even sure if the drawing may have become a mouse nest.

Will,

Today, I recovered the drawing.  It is #108-3042450.

It is a somewhat faded out blue print.  Lots of folds, creases, smucges.

It is more than 7 FEET long!  And around 4 feet high.  It is a drawing showing the routing of cables in the fuselage and is drawn to one quarter scale with some of the details full size.

I did not have a table to lay the drawing out on but I used the cell phone to take some photos of the details.  But they are not that good and I tried to send them to my computer from the cell phone and they send OK as .jpgs but I cant turn them or zoom on them in the computer windows picture viewer like I can on the cell phone.

Perhaps, I could send some of these individually to your cell phone as a text message with photo attached and then maybe you can figure out how to  get them somehow into a useful form that can be sent to the guys needing information.

I am going to attach the main dwg block to this post to see if you can do anything with it in this manner.  I don't have time tonight to do any more but here it is for your possible use.

Wow Larry, that is so cool. If you are willing to mail it to me in Rockwall Texas, I will pay for getting it scanned and added to our tech files.

It is not "cool"! folks used "cool" for everything when I was in high school in the '50s.

Will, I have a long standing policy of NEVER loaning Tools, Books, Drawings, etc to anyone.

I have been burned many times in the past by people I trusted.  I once loaned my copy of "Stinsons" by John Underwood and it never came back.  It has been out of print for years and is irreplaceable. 

I am willing to try to get better photos with my cell phone that I can send to your cell phone for you to manipulate in some manner to make them useful to those that need more information.  I installed mine in 1978 but did not have the drawing and it works perfectly.  I had removed it from another aircraft.  It did not require any welding and the drawing does not indicate any welding needed.  There are a couple of small pulleys added but their part numbers are listed on the drawing block.

You could most likely purchase the drawing from Univair at less cost than postage, scanning, and printing will cost.  I gave you the drawing number. 

I am attaching another that I took.

Will,

The excerpts from the drawing I sent you and you published on bubble up are enlargable and pretty readable.  Here are a couple more that may be helpful if you publish them that way.  I rarely use bubble up because I don't understand it and it seems very slow.  but these may be helpful.  there may be one other that I did not get a photo of that may also be helpful if I can get a photo of it sometime.
