Pitot Tube

Original Monocoupe pitot tubeThe original pitot tube, shown to the left, was pretty crummy.  But, I wanted to use the original intake part.





Modified pitot tubeGeorge Evans was able to machine an end cap for the pitit tube which would accept the original pitot/static tubes.





New machined tip on pitot tubeMade from a billet of aluminum, he added a nice rounded tip to it.





Pitot tube bracketWelded up a new bracket which the pitot tube slides into.  The oval slots in the pitot tube and in the bracket are matched and are used for the pitot/static lines to pass through.  The bracket screws to the spar. The original bracket was available and used as a pattern/guide for fabrication.
