    J-3 Cowl Mounting Rubbers/Clips....

    Hi All,

    Having a ball flying the J-3 I purchased in January! Now up to a grand total of almost 50 tailwheel hours!

    I'm starting to pick away at some various 'beautification' projects, and I'd like to replace all the cowl mounting rubbers/clips. At the moment, my plane has an ugly assortment of random half-grommets, hardware store nylon washers, and three sizes of spring retaining clips.

    Is there anyone that offers a complete kit of new hardware for mounting a J-3 cowl?

    Thanks,

    John

    If you don’t find any look up https://specialtyresin.com/ or smooth on and just make some. Pouring rubber parts is easy. Buy this book. Info is out dated but the simple methods are still good. IMG_9825.JPG

    The tractor pins are available at good hardware stores.

    Not sure the rubber washers were original equipment. My Cub came without them in 1962, and I have never felt any burning need to have them.

    Howdy all, I have seen a friend use die cut discs of brown tanned leather below the SS steel standard clip pins.
