Postby JAB » Tue Jun 22, 2021 7:54 am

Good morning? Or is it?
Just had a small incident with my nipper and am after a Canopy,Propeller 54x35 and a nose wheel rubber gator.
Can you assist?
Cheers

Hi.
I have a Lodge 56x34 propeller. I took it off my Nipper (VW 1834, Acro engine) because I have fitted a Hercules prop. It’s in good condition.

Good afternoon Malcolm and JAB

I have noticed that you both have Acro engines.

I am busy doing an inverted oil / fuel system installation on my Nipper ZS-UDT. it was recommended that i seek the assistance of Nipper Acro owners who may be able to furnish me with the schematics for their oil and fuel systems. IF you could asssist - or point me to Acro owners who are not on this forum it would be very much appreciated.

kind regards

Sven

Sven,

Acro built a number of VW aero engines, not many have the factory installed inverted fuel and oil system.

I think one was G-AWDA, another was G-AWDD. ‘DD’s engine was sold on to another Nipper that was at one time based at RAF Henlow, I cannot remember the registration.

You may have some success looking at https://siteapps.caa.co.uk/g-info/ (advanced search) looking through the old registered owners.

Good luck,

Paul.
