    Default tail feather ribs ?

    Does anyone know if the tail feather ribs are made as a replacement part ?
    If - "NO" ……. do yall know if they are made from 1020 steel or from chrome-molly ?

    I didn't see them at Uni-youknowwho….

    Clyde Smith sells the material, which I believe is mild steel.

    Clyde's Dad was the test pilot on most of our Short Wings and he worked at Piper up through the early days in Vero Beach. He has lots of parts that he makes or obtains from original Piper vendors.
