Deal if the Day, 1/23/19, Round 2

SORRY IT’S SOLD, Stay tuned for more Deals of the Day:

Builders;

I am working my way through a once a decade total hangar clean up, and I have come across a great number of slightly used items that I’m going to sell here. I have enough items that I can put up one or two a night for two weeks.

.

Because  everything, including warfare, has ‘rules’, here we go:

.

A) If you want to buy something, you have to have a Conversion manual of mine. If you don’t have one yet, I suggest you go to my products page and order one. (Just paying for one is good enough, you don’t have to have it in your hands to claim one of these items.) To get one:

Shop – Products | FlyCorvair.com

shop.flycorvair.com/shop/

( Or call SPA at 904-626-7777 during regular business hours. )

.

B) If you see it and you want it, all you have to do is be the first builder to say “I’ll buy that” in the comments section. Please put your first and last name in there and the city you are from. After that you can text me your cell number at 904-806-8143 or Email it to me at WilliamTCA@Flycorvair.com.  If you are the second builder in the comments, do the same in case the first guy forgets to contact me for more than 24 hours. 

.

C) I’ll cover the shipping on this stuff, as long as you are in the US. Outside of uncle Sam’s turf, my friends from abroad will have to cover shipping, tags, permits, VAT (whatever that is) and bribes to postal workers. I’ll deal with my broken government, you guys deal with your own taxmen and bureaucrats. Fair enough?

.

OK, with that all covered, on to the second of this evenings “Deal of the Day”

.

OK, here we have a “Black Prop Hub” This was a standard part for many years, from the early 1990s through 2010. It came in three series, this one is a 1999-2006 model. It has actually flown several hundred hours. It was on a 2,700cc Corvair without a 5th bearing, built in the early 2000s.  When the second owner upgraded to a 5th bearing, he also switched to a Short Gold prop hub.

.

The only three people who should be looking at this are a person building a 1/3 Corvair, a person building a very close replica of an original B.H. Pietenpol engine, or someone with needs a cool Motorhead kitchen decoration.

.

.

It actually looks much worse in pictures than it does in person.  It is actually a serviceable part. It isn’t corroded, the discoloration is just spots where the anodizing wore off.  If a 1/3 Corvair builder wanted to buy the material for the hub it would cost about the same price. This may look a bit rough, but it was made on state of the art CNC machines, from a solid billet of 6061-T6 aluminum.

.

The last time we sold these new, they were roughly $400. Tonight’s second Deal of the Day: price as is; $100.
