Texaco Aviation advertisement with letter from Tony Little endorsing Texaco products.
“I sincerely believe that Texaco gas had a great deal to do with the fact that my ship won more races and more prize money at the Miami Air Meet than any other ship, and was responsible for the efficient service my motor gave me on the Florida Air Tour.”
Here are pictures of Monosport NC8974, which is the ship Tony refers to in his letter.
John Worm is making great progress on his Warner 185X. The first motor is coming off of the CNC machine. There is a Warner 185X Group on Facebook where John posts updates and answers questions. The following pictures are were posted on that Group page.
You can also get more information on his web page.
Cases are off the machine, first and second operations. Just have to do the bores for jugs and lifter guides. Induction housing jig is on the machine right now, and starting to run them by Friday. It’s been a long road to bring the Warner 185 back, but we’re finally in production!
