Progress On Fred's Piper Clipper:

Ron Writes (Dec 2003): Attach pix are an update on putting your engine in a Piper Clipper. This is a four seat 1950 plane I am doing for Fred Jackson of Schenectady, New York. We have the rest of the plane rebuilt and put it on the landing gear today.

The plane will have a custom Leather interior, a new instrument panel included auto pilot. We made a new landing gear 3" longer to clear the prop and expect it to weigh around 900 lbs.

Hope to have the engine running by mid January and will be in Sun & Fun.

The collector ring is being made with several sections slid together.

Original idea was to run the exhaust thru a muffler for heat but will run with without muffler initialy to get performance data. Brian's prop on the Kitfox seems too small yet so we have had one made 78 x 60.

Will keep you posted and would love to see the plane in your web site. I had sent you pix of the Waco some time ago and will send some more.

We have had the windshield on and it sure has a 30s Monocoupe apperance. Ron
