Additional alternator for 914

I want to not have to be discretionary in my use of electricity and with the 914 having electric fuel pumps I reckon it might be smart to consider a 2nd alternator. I believe there is a blank up front on the crankcase for one.....I would like to hear from anyone who has first person experience with using one please? Thanks in anticipation.See More

Hi,I've got a 20 year old 914 that is new in a box, has never been started except maybe in the factory, that is going on my 750 Cruzer in due course. I would like to know if the firewall is the same between the 750 and the 750 Cruzer, think its a silly question but I need it verified. I also am keen to know if there is any pitfalls or things I can manage now in the choices I make with Skytek of Canada for my FWF kit. It seems like there is a fair bit involved and I only have one shot at getting…See More

Hi, Tony.  the -9 doubler came with my kit, delivered on June 12, 2023.  Roger sent me the jpg view of the doubler installed on the rear spar. I've seen other builders' photos where the doubler extends all the way to the root, mine does not. Reference my photo where the inboard end of -9 starts at wing station 190 (station zero is the root rib.) Station 190 is that measurement in millimeters progressing out towards the wing tip. It ends at station 970.  I figured out the placement before I heard from Roger by aligning the factory drilled rivet holes.  I answer to Don. I'm called by other names, just don't call me late for dinner.

Hi Tony,

I don't have the templates (that was years ago when I had them made), but it is simple - just get some poster board and cut the appropriate shapes and tape together.  Most upholsterers can figure it out from there.  Probably showing the picture of the skirt and boot to them will help, too.

As for the seats - what I meant is rather than have a straight edge across the front of the bottom cushion, make a U shaped cut out for the stick and extend the front of the cushion several inches towards the rudder pedals.  The way mine are now, when my feet are on the rudder pedals, they prop-up my thighs a bit and that puts all the pressure on my butt.  OK for short low and slow flights, but on long cross countries its not as comfortable as it would be if some of that weight is supported by the backs of the thighs, too.  

Would love to see some pics posted when you come up with a design!

John
