This tool makes fitting a cowl pretty easy. I start with the bottom. Cut to the lower firewall. Next fit the sides. Once drilled and clecoed. Start fitting the top cowl.

Default Cowl Tool - want to borrow...

Iím running out of parts to build on my -7 but want to keep forward progress while waiting for the engine. The engine mount is installed and the fuse is up on wheels. Plan is to install an IO-360-M1B.

I want to give this method a try to fit up the cowling but donít have access to a crank case & crank. I tried a couple engine shops in FL, but no luck attaining so far

Anyone have one collecting dust they are willing to loan out for a month or two? Iíd gladly pay shipping to central Florida.
