  1. I'll take it off your hands!!! PM me payment details
  2. If it was me, most of my attention would be on the engine, borescope to see if any corrosion is present, oil change, injector cleaning, and spark. Most are commenting on rebuilding, overhaul, IRAN's. I'm concern about your ferry permit and someone flying it back to home base. The engine probably will start and sounds good for sitting that long but can you make it out of the pattern is another thing.
  3. Crap! I see the new heading that its sold.
  4. How much is the annual database subscription? also does the GXM 40 provide weather and radio?
  5. What did you end up doing to get this fix?
  6. Check with Gsxrpilot, he recently did the Encore conversion which required some gear door change, might be another option.
  7. Don't forget his often recommendation of a relief tube!!
  8. -A-, I was just being cheap and trying to avoid the charges for a second reprogram from 252 to encore conversion that's all. I currently have a UBG16 but it has been acting up so I figured "heck I have a JPI 930 let me see if I can have it installed along with the Microkit landing system" so I reached out to JPI.
  9. I've also heard that before. I just replaced my Gill battery last month...... I'll see how long it lasts.
  10. I've been searching for pics of the dual setup just to get an idea of where the second alternator is located. I remember an old mechanic telling me that I would need to replace the whole case a couple months back. I thought that was just crazy cause if the same engine is in Gsxrpilot plane then why wont it fit in mines with same dimension, cowling etc?
  11. Your absolutely right. I think also because of it being certified equipment. My beef was trying to avoid the second $500. Who knows there might not be a charge if I leave it up to the professionals.
  12. I understand the reprogram $500 cost going from a Cessna T210 which the box is currently setup for- to a 252 but! going from 252 to encore is a minor change definitely not worth the additional $500 for a reprogram of the RPM and Manifold pressure especially if it's as simple as an file upload. I definitely know I want to switch my engine from a single alternator to a dual alternator setup during the overhaul so I haven't made the decision on who will do the conversion work just yet. Is there a gauge for dual alternators on the 930?
