4101 Baffle Kit

Product Description


This Baffle Kit includes all the preformed sheetmetal pieces necessary to correctly baffle a Corvair engine. It is primarily designed to work with our Nosebowl or KR-Vair Cowling. The Kit can be configured for stock Corvair 12-plate and folded fin coolers, or the heavy duty 2800 Group coolers.

While these kits are not cheap, buyers will not be disappointed. These outstanding examples of craftsmanship are manufactured exclusively for us by Jim and Rhonda Weseman. This is another example of how we’re meeting increased demand by sourcing components from proven aviation professionals.

Please note that Jim and Rhonda devoted countless hours to developing these parts, working off one of our engines. They have a significant investment in time and tooling. No drawings for these parts exist, just masters and tooling. We’ve had some requests for drawings from people building their own sets. It should be a lot of help for builders to study the photo linked above. But in light of Jim and Rhonda’s efforts, we cannot provide drawings or tracings of their work, and we will not tolerate people attemping to make direct copies and market these parts.

My ability to attract high quality suppliers like the Wesemans largely depends on how fairly they’re treated by builders. Enough said.

These are available for immediate shipment. When ordering, please e-mail Wese@att.net to let the Wesemans know whether you’ll be using a Niagara cooler or stock Corvair 12-plate cooler.
