Airframe & Engine Parts
The 51 Factory has been manufacturing
selected P51 airframe and engine parts for more than 10 years.
Current productions are all run
‘in-house,’ to control quality and ensure each step is inspected and
verified resulting in an end product that performs as designed.
All of the airframe and engine parts we
produce are built and inspected to original drawings and specifications,
with few exceptions. In some cases, modern materials and processes are
available that are clearly superior to the originals, and are selected
as replacements with engineering review and approval.
Process engineering is established and
documented, resulting in consistent parts with mechanical properties
that meet or exceed original specifications.
Although our parts are fully engineered,
documented and inspected/tested, including metallurgical analysis, we
have not pursued FAA part manufacturing approvals at this point, and
therefore would be considered for use on airplanes in experimental
category only. Future plans do include review by FAA designated
engineers with intent to obtain part manufacturing approval for each
item we produce, thereby allowing installation on limited category
Our goal is to provide quality airframe
and engine components to help keep your Mustang flying well in to the
We are working on many projects,
including the following, some of which are available now and others
available in the near future.
