Parts for Oshkosh 

Builders

We are 15 days away from arriving at Oshkosh.  We have a number of items on the shelf, particularly large items like motor mounts, which we will be glad to bring to the event, but if you would like to make sure we have it for you to pick one up at the show, the best idea is to buy it in advance.

When you place an order on this site, it is directly logged with the Weseman’s at SPA/Panther, where the inventory is actually stored. Thus, it can be shipped, packed or organized for pick up right away, no matter where I am in the country. This is the system we have had in place since February 1st, and it works great, and allowed excellent service to continue even while I am doing things like Back in Florida after 7,380 miles on tour.

If you need to ask about a specific part or check available inventory, you can call SPA at 904-626-7777.

Above, a set of Group 1900 valve covers. We had a special run of ten sets done in Black wrinkle finish (this is powder coating not paint) , and we have 7 sets left. If you were around hot rods in high school, you will remember the very popular M/T (Mickey Thompson) valve covers for V-8s, which had this same look.

Above is a high thrust line Pietenpol motor mount. There are currently two of these on the shelf, and I am going to bring them to Brodhead on Saturday, were I am giving my traditional afternoon forum.  If you wish to insure picking one up, paying for it in advance is a good idea. Shipping on motor mounts is substantial, and we save builders this cost when they pick it up in person. For more info, read this: #4201-C Pietenpol Motor mounts, now on the shelf, ready for shipping.

Above ScoobE with Zenith mounts on our back porch. Read the 2014 story he wrote on them: 750 Mount 4201(B) for sale, Story by Scoob E  . Over the years I have made more than 100 zenith 750 mounts, and more than 250 zenith 601/650 mounts.  That is a proven product from a stable source.

.

We also have 6 Zenith 750 mounts and one 650/601 mount on hand. Read Parts Production improvements- #4201 Motor Mounts. These are very popular at Oshkosh, and often sell out by the second day.  If you would like to pick one up and save the shipping, order in advance.

Above , Sunset in the dry part of eastern Washington, 75 miles south of Spokane.  The arrangement with the Weseman’s to distribute the Corvair parts in our catalog has worked incredibly well. Crucial to my goal of teaching builders skills is being able to travel to them, and I can now do this without taxing customer service.  Six months ago, I had a very long back order list, including things like 44 E/P-X distributors and 27 Zenith and Pietenpol motor mounts. Today we have no back orders on these, but that is just part of the story. I have also done the Western tour with three colleges, continued on a high pace of R&D projects, kept up with communications , and most important, been able to spend a significant amount of time with my Father. My gratitude for the efforts of the Weseman’s this year is particularly based on this last item. When good people assist you in making the right thing happen at a critical time, perhaps the only way this can be described is as a blessing.
