  1. Bob Bramble has been recommended by several folks on this forum. https://www.aerolabaviation.com/index.htm
  2. Something very bad is happening to makes these pins break off. I would get someone independent of the overhaul shop to do an inspection before you send it off for repair. You may have a legal claim against the overhaul shop, notwithstanding the expiration of the warranty period. A consultation with an attorney would be helpful.
  3. This is an excellent discussion of the topic:
  4. There is no internal lighting for the cluster. I think it was originally lit by post lights.
  5. I am sure there are many ways to do this. When replacing my baggage door fabric and liner I used .020 aluminum as a backing material. I glued foam to it and then covered it with vinyl fabric that had FAA fire certification (All American Naugahyde from Sailrite). The aluminum was very easy to work with.
  6. This might be a good place to look: https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/elpages/whelenstrobesystema500.php You could also contact Whelen directly.
  7. We have owned our 1965 C for about 7 years. Most of the upgrades were done two owners ago, by a gentlemen from Ohio who flew the wings off of it. It's mostly 1990ish tech, but it all works nicely. The combination of HSI, 430W and the S-TEC 60-2 with altitude preselect makes for an easy-traveling plane. Putting the equivalent modern equipment in a manual gear C makes a lot of sense to me. You would get full IFR traveling capability in a reliable and easy to maintain airframe.
  8. 3M Adhesive Remover, 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner or just regular Xylene from the hardware store should do the trick. For that quantity of stuff to remove, use plenty of ventilation and consider wearing the appropriate respirator.
  9. If your really want a stopwatch you could mount it to the other yoke. http://www.mypilotstore.com/MyPilotStore/sep/7183?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8YaLzL-X4gIVB1YNCh01hwQ4EAQYAiABEgIP7fD_BwE When we bought out C it had two stopwatches mounted on the yoke.
  10. I know for a fact that there is no airflow through our center event when in the closed position. You might want to check the floor to see if there are some openings. Some aluminum tape will fix that up.
  11. A newer oil temperature gauge has been added along the bottom of the right hand instrument panel. Also, it looks like there is an autopilot controller mounted on top of the wheel well. You might want to ask seller if it works. Looks like a nice plane.
  12. Here is one at LASAR. https://lasar.com/placards-decals/air-vent-placard-decal-150000-013 You might contact them for the other, or Aerographics can probably make it for you.
  13. Nope. I am not far away, and they do most of the maintenance on the plane, including annuals.
