The EOC has lots of Ercoupe drawings. You might give Gene Bunt a call and see if he has any drawings of the split elevator. Heck, you could make a business out of supplying new split elevators!

The legal part is not the problem. I work closely with a few designated engineering representatives (DER) and they told me if I can find any type of technical drawings that shows the material, skins and lay out of a split elevator they can create an 8130 form for me.

I wonder if you could legally produce one under the owner made part rule, which allows owners to make parts for a vintage plane where replacements may not be available. I think the split elevators are getting harder to find.

E models and later, as well as Forneys, Alons all had the split tail.

Let me add one more piece of information. I have access to a large sheet metal shop that can build practical anything. My hope was to find a technical drawing of the split elevator so we could modify my elevator.

I’m pretty sure you need to find a split elevator from a G model to put on. I don’t of anyone making one.
