This Illustrated Parts Catalog is designed to provide simple but positive identification of replacement parts for the Piper Super Cub (PA-18) Models 95,105,125,135 and 150; and the Piper Agricultural (PA-18A) Models 125,135 and 150 manufactured by the Piper Aircraft Corporation of Lock Haven,
The PA-18 Super Cub was a reinforced PA-11, itself an adjustment of the first J-3 Cub. With a couple of minor changes and a 150-drive motor, the PA-18 resembled a Cub, even though it came in a few paints conspires and did not have the recognizable bear logo on its tail. Around 8,500 Super Cubs were worked at Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, and they demonstrated mainstream as private and utility airplanes and as military coaches.
The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) utilized this Super Cub in its uranium investigation program in the West during the 1950s. The harsh and now and again blocked off territory settled on an airborne overview of a coherent decision, and the AEC's armada of 10 low, moderate, and cheap Super Cubs kept a lucky record of security and dependability. A glimmer counter used to identify gamma radiation is in the back of the plane.
The PA-18 has built up an exceptionally devoted following in the bramble flying local area, and numerous alterations have been produced for it, to where it is very uncommon to locate a unique, totally stock Super Cub. Changes incorporate expanded stuff compartments (venturing further once more into the fuselage, or even two-level things compartments in the top and lower part of the back fuselage), outside gear cases, fuel cases, amble racks for conveying development materials into unchanged hedge runways.
Likewise, the expulsion of header tanks, bigger 24 or even 30-gallon wing fuel tanks, expanded principle landing gear for better ground freedom of the propeller, reinforced tail wheel springs, the expansion of a little third passenger seat in the baggage zone, and lightweight generators and starters.
Likewise different distinctive mount territories for the battery (to push the load ahead, and lessen tail weight to abbreviate departure distance), different diverse tailfin shapes to build a surface region, extended folds, different wingtip plans, vortex generators on the main edge of the wings, development of the electrical panel from the conservative root to the dashboard to diminish fire peril during an accident, and even the expansion of a steady speed propeller.
Most importantly, the most widely recognized change is simply the expansion of "shrub wheels" (said to be immediate relatives of Alvin Musselman's 1920's-source "airwheel" tires utilized on the first Piper J-3), enormous, delicate, low pressing factor swell tires intended to retain impacts from rocks and stones and to not sink into sand or other delicate surfaces, ideal for off-runway arrivals.
