    So I won't be posting every time I screw a nut onto a bolt. Mostly I will highlight points of interest, tricks and solutions and general thoughts. Also I am discovering that I am needing 'special' tools sooner than anticipated, so in this first post I will list and special tools/materials and the section I first needed them in. That way if anyone else is building a Skyreach Bushcat they can see when they have to spring for them without having to buy them all at once.

     

    Torque seal                                - Section 1

    Pop rivet gun                             - Section 2 (not really a special tool as such, but I didn't have one handy so it goes in the list!)

    Loctite 243                                - Section 12

    Cable tension gauge                 - Section 14

    0.82 safety wire                         - Section 14

    modified pointy nosed pliers     - Section 17

    Antoinette began as a private venture led by the engineer Léon Levavasseur. By 1904, most of the prize-winning speedboats in Europe were powered with Antoinette engines. During this time, he designed engines of various configurations of up to thirty-two cylinders.

    The company's primary business was the sale of engines to aircraft builders. Their engines were used in the Santos-Dumont 14-bis of 1906, Paul Cornu's rudimentary helicopter of 1907, the Voisin biplane that was modified and piloted by Henri Farman who used it to complete Europe's first 1 kilometer circular flight in January 1908, and other significant pioneer aircraft.

    There seems to be no information about the application of the v16.

    This is an item I wrote a few years ago which was hard to upload due to the limitations of the forum.
