As of this moment, the last component of the last system that needs to
be fixed in our '63 Avion T-20 is the Harper-Wyman model 58 pilot
asembly in the Magic Chef oven.
Ive been hoarding parts for it for the last 15 months, and finaly found
the last piece yesterday, which was a length of 1/8" copper tubing for
the gas feed to constant pilot, at a local Ace Hardware.
If it sounds like Im making a big deal of this, its because ive tried
every source I could think of for 1/8" tubing for the last 6 months.
I dont know how long this piece was sitting there, but it left a
footprint in the dust.
So now that I have all the pieces, I need to know how they go together.
I have a schematic of how it pieces together from the Silver Avion site.
But have no idea of how it physicaly goes together since the pilot
assembly was missing when I got the trailer.
Is the pilot assembly supported only by the 3 tubes? (2 gas tubes and a
capilary) or is there another bracket just for the pilot assembly that
If anyone has a pic or two of a early 60s Magic Chef with the Harper-
Wyman 58 Series safety controll and would like to share, you would have
the overwhelming gratitude of a man whose inhaled way to much propane
fumes while figuring out the gas system.
