SOLD! Pee Wees for trade

Post  flying poodle on Sat Nov 14, 2015 9:51 pm

I got 4 pee wees that have been sitting around here too long.  They all turn free and have good compression.  Each has had one of the bolt holes in the back plate drilled out.  I presume for the use of a remote tank? Also included is several gaskets, reed valves and rings, extra bolts, propellers, and an extra tank with a hole drilled in it.  I have never run any of these guys.  

I would like to trade for a norvell 0.74, but am up for other offers, even cash!

Well, if no one is interested I guess I'll put them back in the drawer. I thought someone could use them.

Is there a really short screw inside the drilled out hole?

I'm thinking there should be.. to seal the crankcase, but what would it shoulder-up to? The tank's curvature is at the front. That would side-load the head of the screw.. as well as cut into the aluminum.

No. No screw on the inside. I never thought of it but you are right. It would be needed to property secure the crankcase. I guess you could also use a regular bolt with a washer and gasket?

It would be rather odd to use the backplate bolt hole to run a fuel line through the back. It would have to be bent 180 degrees to do that, most likely would kink. Standard way is to drill a hole through the tank side. Have that on my Ace Littlest Stick.



Photo is not a good shot, but you can see the silicon fuel line exiting tank at the bottom and connects to a tank nipple directly underneath. The short nipple on aircraft right side is a vent. The fill is on the other cheek.

To repair that hole, you could probably use a 2-56 screw with washer and some RTV to seal washer and screw at the back. Then drill a dimple in the ply firewall to recess the screw head so the back fits flush.

I would guess overtightened screws pulled through the backplate, not drilled out. Huh...

I had a hole fracture on me one time. Can't remember if it was a Babe Bee or Pee Wee, ended up buying a new backplate when parts were still available at the local hobby store. May be I am wrong, but in this case hole appears slightly smaller than the head of the phillister head screw.
