thanks, I have a picture, and with the door open and looking at it from outside it appears to be about the 10 O Clock position.
Is that similar to yours?

The dreaded Purple Stain. It is usually caused by bird droppings and there is nothing I know that can take it out. It is one reason I have gone to Polyurethanes over Polytone.

I have to reattach (weld) the inside handle back onto the lower door of my J3.
Anyone have a good picture of the location/ angle it should be positioned onto the shaft?

Thanks,
Fran

I have some dark stains (like drops) on my yellow pain. I think these were caused by condensation dripping on the fuselage from the hanger when it was really dusty at one time or that is my best theory. I have tried:

  • rubbing compound
  • waxes
  • GoJo
  • Mothers metal polish
Nothing touches it. I have to repaint it but I don't know what else to try.

I have an Air Energy 18 gal fuel tank, STC SA00805CH. It was removed from the left wing of my PA-12 because it is leaking. It has since been repaired. I'm interested in selling it.

beaverbill1@hotmail.com replied to the topic 'J4 with C-85 vs O-200' in the forum. 3 months ago

According to the Continental Maintenance Manual there is only about 3lbs difference between the C85-12 and the O-200 basic engines. Accessories such as standard vs lightweight starter and generator could easily offset that. Another possible consideration is the fact that the C85-12 is a specified item on the Type Certificate for the J4A, whereas the O-200 is not. Perhaps there is an STC for installing the O-200? Or you could use a C85-12 modified with the O-200 crankshaft etc and have much the same power output. That engine modification is STC'd.
Of course, at the moment I just happen to have a C85-12 engine that I will sell, if that's the way you decide to go.
Hope this helps, Bill

FlyinPharmer created a new topic ' J4 with C-85 vs O-200' in the forum. 4 months ago

Looking for advice and opinions on installing a C-85 vs O-200 on a J4. I've been told that the O-200 will necessitate adding extra weight in the tail to balance the CG, thus giving similar performance as a J4 with a C-85.

Also, any opinions on best prop for J4 climb performance?

dan1082@comcast.net replied to the topic 'Re:Want PA-11 cowling on a J3' in the forum. 4 months ago

J3 engine mount won’t fit inside pa11 cowling unless you do a lot of modification. I bought the stc from Attlee dodge. For the conversion. It doesn’t address the engine mount. Pa11 cowling and pa18-95 cowling pieces are not exactly the same pa11, they are slightly longer do to the pa18-95 has a swing mount. I went to univair and had them line the cowlings up next to each other
