And ran the water temp line and ignition wires on the left side of the fuselage.
Here you can see the oil temp bulb in the side of the engine case.
After some good advise, I decided to change the oil pressure line. Now a flexible hose runs from the firewall all the way to a barb fitting on the pickup. No copper lines from the firewall forward anymore.
On to other things......
Dorian Walker just sent me a link to this site:
This is a cool website which lists every serial number of every airplane in the USAF inventory between 1908 and 1920.
Dorian also sent me a website listing all the Jenny accidents prior to 1920. Interesting reading!
In my last post, you might remember my friend John Saunders sending pictures about his SE5 / Hisso project in New Zealand. John was looking for a source of new Hisso bearings. I didn't know where to get them, but thankfully Jenny owner Frank Shelling had been down this road before and was willing to help.
Notice the really long Hisso exhaust stack. That was probably made so the wing walker wouldn't get a face full of hot exhaust when he climbed out of the cockpit.
That must have been a crazy time back then. No rules. Fly however, wherever and whoever you want. Of course, the mortality rate reflected this.
Lastly, you model makers amaze me. Check out Steve Kessenger's Jenny model.
Steve says: My Jenny model is at a slight standstill while I try to figure out a cowling issue, and I've also been busy building my Progressive Aerodyne SeaRey.
Gota love all this Jenny stuff. I'll post more of Dave Trojan's stuff in the next post. This one is long enough.
