  1. You are in a hangar, GPS reception is blocked. Try that outside and turn your autopilot on. All of those errors should go away except the database mismatch. That can be resolved as Txbyker suggested. However, none of that has anything to do with the kernel panic on initial startup. That needs to be looked at. It may just require the system software to be reloaded.
  2. Remember the good old days, when the engine ran rough because it was too lean we would just wind the red knob in until it ran smooth? Those were the days! At 8000 feet or higher in your O you can set the mixture anywhere you want and not hurt a thing. Just enrichen it until it's smooth. But, as others have already pointed out, it's most likely your ignition system.
  3. Most likely the gear motor is in need of replacement, as others have mentioned.
  4. Don't bother calling Garmin, they are just going to tell you to take it to a Garmin dealer, there is nothing that can be done by the end user to fix that. I am one, and we are very fluent in G1000. That's a system kernel panic, you probably have a GIA with a bad boot block. Thats going to require at least one GIA to be sent to Garmin, probably both. Did the MFD boot at all?
  5. Mooney used it on old Ovations. They also used some sort of black material for the same purpose around the same time. At some point they stopped using it. Not real sure of it's intended purpose, maybe thats why they stopped using it. They also used to use scat tubing that was wrapped in a similar material in the engine compartments. You can still order it by part number, but when you open the box, it's just scat tubing....
  6. The last one I bought was about the same either way. One just took longer.
  7. No, you need a tug to bend the nose truss. FYI- if you order a new one from Mooney you can get the one with stops.
  8. You mention that it is a 28 volt unit. The WAAS upgrade is $3800.00. The unit gets sent to Garmin and modified and refurbished. It will not be a 12 volt capable unit after that. If it's a 28 volt only unit now, it will remain a 28 volt unit after the WAAS upgrade. If you intend to install it in a 14 volt aircraft, you will need to run it off of a 14 to 28 volt step up transformer. Donkaye's wisdom is sound, anyone that tells you a 530 is just as good as a GTN750 has never flown behind a 750. Install labor is the same, both are going to cost you 40-60 hours of labor.
  9. Oversized thru-studs, yes. There are also a number of case mods that involve dowel pins and O-rings aimed at stopping thru-stud oil leaks. We have them incorporated into every Lycoming engine we build.
  10. You didn't buy a big box GPS, you bought the small box. It's still easier than a 430. No one is going to repair the knob on the OP's 430W, except Garmin. I can't even buy the part. Contact cleaner has very little chance to help, the rotary knobs are contactless, thats why they lasted as long as they did. Garmin uses some sort of optical pick up inside those dials, so I am told. WAAS upgrade went up to $3800 January 1st.
  11. It's ok, I want a Trio too......
  12. S-tec 30 autopilot system, brand new in box, complete.
  13. I have a brand new, old stock, S-tec (Genesys now) System 30 autopilot for sale. This is a rate based 2 axis autopilot with altitude hold. It is complete. All servos, brackets, harness, turn coordinator, etc. It has never been installed or used for anything, or completely unpackaged for that matter, and comes with all paperwork and documentation required......wait for it.....wait.....to install it in a Grumman AG5B. We are an S-tec dealer, this was ordered quite a while ago for a customer and never installed. This system can be modified as needed and new STC paperwork issued for numerous 28V aircraft. The cost is varied, it requires the autopilot to be sent back to Genesys and modified to be the part numbers required for that installation, an install kit containing the proper brackets and harness, and a new STC transferred to the aircraft. It can also be installed in an Experimental aircraft as is, as long as it's similar to a Grumman Tiger. It would work great in any 28V RV or the like. This system lists for $11989.00. If you own a Grumman AG5B Tiger or an experimental, I will sell you this one installed for $9000.00 provided you bring the plane to KDAB. If you want it for installation elsewhere, $7500.00 plus shipping to you.
  14. PMA8000B Sold, thread updated with lower price on KX155.
