BD-5 Customer Information

Bulletin No. 10

Machined Parts Information

We have had several inquiries as to what holes are drilled in the machined parts that were offered in Customer Information Bulletin No. 9 in reference to LG-172, LG-151 and LG-152. Both holes in LG-172 are drilled. No other holes are required in this part. The 1" pivot hole is drilled in LG-151 and LG-152. All parts are machine faced, where required. There are five (5) mode bolt attachments holes in these parts that the homebuilder is required to drill himself.

Plans Information

The next set of plans to be sent out are Nosegear Door fabrication and installation. Inspection Hole cut-out and the Standard Pitot-Static system. There are at the printer and as soon as we receive them, they will be mailed. At the present time the fuel system, main landing gear and control system plans are being prepared for printing.

Included in the fuel system plans are installation details for baffles, fuel drain, optical fuel gauge and fuel fillers in the wings. All of these installations can be done with the wing closed or opened, but it is a lot easier with it still open.

Several calls have been received about FU66 Bulkhead. This part will be fabricated by the homebuilder from sheet aluminum and the drawing will soon be released to you.

Misprints on the Plans

Chapter 3, Page 31. Lower right corner says (Con't on 24). This should read (Con't on 34).

Chapter 6, Page 61, Paragraph 7: Change BD-0059-1 to read BD-0106-1. Change BD-0059-2 to read BD-0106-2. (These are bushings for installation in LG-69 and LG-70 and will be sent out soon.)

Chapter 6, Page 61, Paragraph 10, Line 3: Delete (of MBD).

Chapter 6, Page 61, Paragraph 10, Line 20: Add (is correct) to the paragraph.

Something You Should Know About

You have been shipped a plastic bag labeled "AN310-3," supposedly containing three tension nuts. In actual fact, our supplier (who pre-packs these nuts for us) packaged three AN320-3 shear nuts by mistake.

Our Engineering Department has evaluated the substitute nuts and states that the nuts can be used in the flap actuator system, as will be shown on the drawing in the chapter on "Control System." (This chapter is now being prepared for printing.) The important thing is that the nuts supplies are not used anywhere else on the aircraft. (Used on parts CF-11 and CF-29.)

Machine Finished Parts Reminder

Just want to remind all customers that LG-172, LG-151 and LG-152 are available, on an exchange basis, already machine-finished and bored (where applicable) for the unmachined castings in Supplement Package 3. Your price: LG-172 - $21.50; LG-151/152 - $23.50 each.

Note: LG-151 and 152 are actually made from two LG-151's. Your Bill of Materials shows this, and invoices covering shipment of replacement machined parts will also reflect this.
