Cowl plugs

Postby Dferr34 » Tue Feb 14, 2023 10:24 am

Hello everyone, does anyone know where I could find front cowl plus for a 1949 Cessna 170A? Also the little opening above the air filter.

Thanks, Don

I got mine from Bruce's Custom Covers for a 1954 170B. Their website shows plugs for B Model (4 or 5 plugs) and/or carb inlet.

They may do custom as well for the A Model.

I have a brand new set I can send you for the cost of shipping. They will have the wrong N number for you, but the price is right!
