A good little manual



I don’t want to create the impression that all good illustrations in manuals stopped in 1958, below is a little impulse coupling manual from the 1980s that a lot of A&P mechanics have tucked away on a shelf.



If you look very close the sad statement is followed by the words “my name is Adam”, a reference to an annoying character our housemate Francis dated.




About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at www.FlyCorvair.com and in more than 50 magazine articles.

    As cool a 19th C device an impulse coupler is…is FlyC going retro? Back to magnetos?? Of course not, but you knew someone would seriously chime in, and the insulation of a little sass might be beneficial to moods…I know… it was about illustrations…being an artist I did get that.
