    Regarding fabrication of boot cowls on a -12. If you are making new, face the lip of the cowl forward. This is how the later 47s and PA-14 were made. If you don’t, you will have to fabricate or reuse...

    In the vertical tube, you have to remove about an inch and a half “c” chunk out of the tube and weld in a new piece so the integrity of the tube isn’t compromised. This is so the throttle linkage...
