    that question still has me thinking so I went out and looked at another plane I remembered.
    Mid 50's PA-18A-150. says so , by looking at it, by the original logbooks, and by the airworthiness certificate.
    However the Dataplate (which I'm 99.9% sure is original) says PA-18-150 !!! Not sure if that was just a Piper fubar or ??
    Would you ground it if it came into your shop ?? I wouldn't

    Be a perfect candidate for a new fuselage tho !! ha ha
    I may be wrong but that probably won't stop me from arguing about it.

    A Don Jones reproduction data plate was used for the auxiliary plate on a local Aeronca Champ. Bright shiny new plate right beside the old beat up original.

    What other mods are required for that STC beside the different engine--
    maybe some fuselage beef-ups, etc?
    All aspects of the STC must be complied with.

    Changing Identification Plate Information
    You may change the identification data required by § 45.13(a) only when such change comply with specific FAA-approved or -accepted data (for example, design data,maintenance procedures, and rebuilding or alteration procedures contained in manufacturers’ manuals, letters, bulletins).

    Note: When an aircraft has been modified to conform to another model of the same make, a new identification plate is required to be attached as close as physically possible to the original identification plate. The original identification plate is not to be removed or altered in any manner.
    I've looked at a Champ converted from a 7AC to a TCCM, actually a coupole of them,
    and I kinda recall the original data plate being stamped "CONV 7CCM",
    as opposed to it being on a new separate data plate.

    The IA that supervised this one (Bill Pancake, the Aeronca guy) claimed that restamping a dataplate was frowned on now and an aux plate was in order.
