    Default Lower Cowl

    Does anyone know if there is a drawing for the lower cowling in the Blueprints and Drawings cd for a 57 Trip Pacer? I have use of a water jet to cut it out.

    Default Lower Cowl Assembly drawing

    The dimensional drawing for the lower cowling is not on the CD. It was one we were not able to get. I do have a copy of drawing 14258 which is just an assembly drawing that I have attached .

    Thank you Tom, I will let you know how it works out. If I can figure out how to cut it on the water jet I will let you know and if anyone needs a piece of sheet metal that might look similar to the the one i needed I am sure I can cut a piece of sheet metal for someone to make their own.

    Will a lower cowl for a 53 fit my 57?

    Based on the part numbers in the parts manual and after looking at the drawing we have available, my answer is it should. The part numbers are the same so it should fit.

    If you need a lower cowl use the old polish blueprint method. Take your old cowl and lay it out flat on a new piece of metal. Then clamp the two sheet together and trace the old cowl outline on the new metal. Pull them apart and cut the new metal to shape. I think the lower cowl is .040 so it is pretty easy to cut with hand shears.

    Not very high tech but probably faster than programming in the waterjet and will be just as accurate.
