  10. RCAF/CAF and CDN Army Aircraft Colours Note: All 1-GP-12c colours are a Matt unless designated otherwise. 1-GP-12b: 9-2 1-GP-12c: 509-102 (Gloss) Hue: 0 Sat: 240 Lum: 93 Red: 204 Green: 0 Blue: 0 This was the overall colour for trainer and CAF dedicated SAR aircraft, plus airfield ground equipment, prior to being replaced by FS13538, in the late 1990's. Early post-war RCAF target tug aircraft used the colour with black striping. the great paint conversion chart suggests Testers 1707 Chrome Yellow
  11. its great advice and almost certainly where I'm headed personally.... but I've been asked to repair a few things for friends & fellow club members here in freddy beach.. so here we are.
  12. Air-craft, at the bottom of the unit there are two valves, a safety release with the large pull ring - used to relieve pressure before turning on compressor (at least this one hates a high pressure start !) the other valve is also a pressure relief, keeps the max psi in the tank at approx 79 lbs, quiet below that, gentle hiss when above. Its also the point where I sense a bit of oil (everything has improved with a trap at the regulator, nothing noticeable collected yet, but the smell is much improved) In your experience is a hint of oil from this port a serious concern ? The temp sensor sits in a metal clip attached directly to the motor housing, it seems to have a set space between the main surface & the sensor, but it may have been distorted and the distance is now too big... any thoughts on how close it should be for accurate readings ? and on a different note, I have a second small compressor with a similar relief valve at the bottom of a moisture trap/pressure gauge combo that is ment to operate at 50-55 psi... it opens at 22... adjsting spring height & tension has no effect & I'm sure I'm using the wrong terms because I cannot find anothert example as a seperate unit. This is the unit on the compressor now... the valve at the bottom in this pic
  13. Sil-Air 15 Export (basic) is exactly it save for the grey paint job (vs Italian Red) The manual has a warning about 15 minutes on 15 minutes off to prevent wear on the motor. As far as I can tell, the basic unit I have runs continuously with a mechanical bleed pressure relief & only a thermal shut off when hot (hasn't happened yet). Possible problem with sensor ?
  14. I've been asked to bring an old Medici silent compressor back to life, I've managed to un-seize and fix some wiring issues, but would really like to see a manual or schematic to confirm my guesses. One continuing issue is a wee bit of oil spitting from the bleed regulator at the bottom of the unit. Any hints or advice on if this is normal for old units or if I've missed a step in reassembly.... much appreciated
  15. unwritten rule of Canadian websites... CF-104 pics welcome anywhere !
