    Hello to all . I am honoured to be here among people who share the the same feelings for aircrafts like myself. i,m a fanatic though, totally hooked and helpless. i,m from Guyana, south america.i,m 39 , married. I was given a scrap cessna 150f . just to have that old bird in my garage is thrill i can,t get over. It willl take a lot to get it airborne.I plan to do most the repairs my self and make the missing parts my self although having no previous experience but i belive love conquers all.

    Glad to have you. Sounds like an interesting project. Does Guyana have a large amount of private aviation?

    Best of luck!

    Good luck with the Cessna 150 rebuild. Just get a Cessna 100 series shop manual and AC43.13. (available online)
    That should get you started.

    yeah bearson, thnks , i will need lots more than luck. I did some civil engineering so i,d llike to think i,m kinda structure oriented. I,ve learn alot of aeroplanes from reading, reading n more..... had a few minutes on a twin islander.got a aircraft mechanic for a friend but can,t depend heavily on him. i will need to link up with some one from this forum who is qualified , has the patience and can guide me through the numerous obstacles i will encounter. perhaps u can help me. i hope i,m not expecting too much here

    Just to confirm what BBerson said, FAA publication AC43.13 gives you a great amount of information on how to perform repairs. I would definitely add it to my library of references if I were you. If you don't have a hardcopy, it is also available online. Here is one link to it, but I'm sure there are probably other online sources that might even be easier to read online.

    AC 43.13-1B CHG 1 [Large AC. This includes Change 1.] Acceptable Methods, Techniques, and Practices - Aircraft Inspection and Repair

    It is a procedures manual published by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration showing approved (and proven) methods for repairs. Very good source for "how to" information.

    The shop manual (repair manual) is all you need. The parts manual is useful but not really needed.

    You might need to make a wing jig. I made a jig with welded 2" steel pipe. The repair manual gives information for wing jig angles.

    I know where there's an airplane junk yard in Wisconsin that a farmer keeps where I could visit and see if he has a junk one I could take apart for dimensions. I don't know if he would let me, but I would be willing to try. I'll be heading up there in a couple of weeks, so I'll bring some beer and see what happens, he's a really nice fellow.

    What's so funny about that! I own a farm down the road and we go up on weekends to get away. If he has one I can give you his number or I can drink beer and rip one apart. Sounds like fun to me. :gig: A 150 is a long shot but I don't know until I go there. I didn't realize your half way around the world but it wouldn't be the first time Iv'e done something like this. Anything to help another aviator.......were all in this together right?

    Oh, to answer your question about the Cessna150f shop manual and parts catalog, I have no idea. My experience with aluminum construction is ZERO so all I can do is go check the airplane salvage yard and try and hook you up.

    Re: Wanted: Cessna 150 shop manual (soft copy)

    Yo Mike I appreciate your generousity and the cooperation I received from BB,Bruce,Jman and the rest of the gang. Yeah man I,m far away from the land of the goodies but i belive I can pull this off.This bird is in bad shape at first glance but with my love for airplanes and help from you guys I,ll do this .Following the advice from BB I,d really like to get a copy of the shop manual. I,ve already downloaded the AC43.13.I,d be happy if you can help me access any parts for this craft. You never know it might be cheaper to post it down here that building them. Thnks for any assistance. Jerry
