Blanking plate

Post by tazin river » Sat Mar 30, 2019 11:16 am

Getting rid of the vacuum pump on the Cessna 180.
Where can I get a blanking plate to seal the hole?

I suppose it helps if you read the actual question.... I read C180 and immediately thought of venturis! For an engine mounted vacuum pump, there is probably a better option than cutting a random piece of sheet metal to fit.

Hearing "farmer" and "Red Deer ",,, Bailing twine and a rudely cut cardboard with 1 side lathered in rtv red comes to mind LOL

Dont forget the Weight and balance amendment and the extra horsepower for take-off !
