Hi Chris,

Hi Chris


Boy, that was fast!  I didn't get to ship it until Fri AM-  They told me you would receive by Tues of this week.  The gallery oil plugs are not in tight in the case- just enough so they don't get lost.  Also- did you find the thru bolts and nuts wrapped in cardboard?

I'm working on installing my throttle quadrant in the center console and all trim and flap switches located to the rear of the quadrant.


Thanks again- Fred

Hi Chris

I had forgot that i had the bell housing cut down for a front cover and would have sent it along at no cost.  I had misplaced the gallery oil plugs so stopped at corvair ranch today .

I had Dan Weserman install his new one piece 5th bearing and his new mfg billet crank on a case I shipped to him.  If you decide that route, it takes awhile from ordering till it is completed.  I have'nt received mine from him yet but it is now ready.  If you have questions on his work- let me know.

Will get your package off to you in a day or so.

Thanks- Fred

Hi Chris

Received your check-Thanks- Will get to UPS Monday or Tuesday to ship.

I have a question for you- are you planning on installing a 5th bearing?  If not, I have a bell housing that is cut down to size for the front end cover- could easily be packed in the same box.  Also, do you have a crank?  The crank I listed is still available.

Thanks again -Fred

Don't mind at all.  If you can sell the picture at a profit, we'll split the proceeds!

Hi Chris,

     I commend you on your choice of an airplane, and wish you the best of luck with your build.  Thank-you for your kind words about Montana.
