Want to Buy: C85 cylinder

Postby Leesr » Mon Mar 11, 2019 8:07 pm

My beloved permit Taylorcraft here in the UK, with a C85, has a cracked cylinder, so I'm looking for a replacement.
Any avenues/suggestions?

(as an aside, I also need two A-65 cylinders, +0.015 with an EASA Form 1 or an FAA 8130) for my beloved certified Taylorcraft in the USA. They're broken as well.

It never rains but it pours.

Try Adam's Aviation for info about new cylinders from Superior.
My friend got new C90 cylinders from them.
I may have one serviceable A65 cylinder but no Form 1.

Hi Tony,

Superior only sell A65 cylinders as a complete set of four, at about $6000.00 :shock:

Yes, gets expensive!
When I got my A65 top overhauled a few years ago I found I had three cracked cylinders...
Hence I have one that is is likely okay (not cracked) but I didn't get a full inspection carried out on it.
