Looking for drawings and Landing Gear Info

Can anyone tell me where I might find a good source of drawings for the LP65?  Currently, I need information on the nuts and bolts used to connect the tailwheel leaf spring to the frame and the tailwheel to the leaf spring.   I was also working on the landing gear and, after removing the shock rubbers, found that our shock slide (pictured below) is damaged.  We're thinking of having it repaired, but I thought that I would check to see if anyone knows where I might be able to purchase a…See More

"Perry, Thank you for your reply. We had our 0145 B2 rebuilt a few years ago.  My father did mention how the cylinders on the Continental engine are independent of the crankcase, which would make them much easier to service. You have probably…"

"Thanks Bryant!  I'd advise converting to a CP-65 if you can, but I am enjoying my LP-65 even with the 0145 B-2."

"Tom - Thank you for your welcome! My father purchased his LP65 disassembled in 1985. This is the only plane that he has ever owned.  Although he loves planes and flying, he has not piloted a plane in years.  It is my hope that he and I can…"

Hi Bryant,

 

Sorry, I rjust noticed that I responded to the no reply email address.  How does 9/10 work for you?  That is the Open House at Packer Field from 11a on.  I'll be there late afternoon but there will be eats and drinks and Stearmans, etc hopping free rides.
