    EI CGR-30P/B/C ANY GOOD

    I’m on the books to have the cgr 30 c installed in October along with a panel upgrade, the way I had it configured I’ll consolidate the following gauges: MP, RPM, fuel quantity l/r, amps, oil pres, oil temp, cht, egt, fuel pres, vac. And added fuel flow, engine time and time. I’ll let you know how it comes out, I was informed by the shop about their dislike of the red slide-in-Allen-tightened connectors. I have a used ubg16 that I installed about a 3 months ago that has worked great until the last flight after changing spark plugs, I might have a loosened connection on one of the probes that I’ll have to fiddle with. That’s the first problem I’ve had with them and that was after engine tore apart and all probes hanging during annual then spark plugs replaced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel leak?

    I had a leak at the fuel sender and it was hard to see, look under the carpet in the back seat area. I pulled the side panels off the passenger side and finally discovered the leakage. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have a budget of 20 amu to work with, I’m looking to upgrade the stuff I use the most. I have flown 98% of the time outside of adsb space. I have a panel made and powder coated, I bought a few Clinton breakers but need to purchase the remainder. I’ve decided to keep my transponder and go with the uavionix adsb option later. I have purchased a ei cgr30c cluster gauge replacement and it needs to be installed. I have a quote for panel and cgr install for $4200. What I’m looking at is the following: pse pma 8000bt - $4105 installed garmin gnc 255a - $5495 installed aspen e5 - $7895 installed Let me know what your opinions are on what I’m thinking about purchasing, those 3 items are yet to be bought. If anyone has looked into the e5, does it cost $4000 to install? Thanks in advance. Clayton

    Greg, What was the turn key cost on the panel upgrade? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ADS-B REGS

    I am also curious to this situation, I personally can stay out of class c but would like to fly above 10,000, so I’m looking at this ads b “investment”. I currently have kx170’s, old audio panel and transponder. I have bought a EI CGR 30c cluster gauge replacement and had a custom panel made but have not installed either, I have a quote of $3500 to install both. I have a $20k budget and want to get the best for my buck. I have been looking at when installing CGR and panel: Garmin GMA 345 Stratus ESG Garmin gnc 255a nav/com/gs Quoted $19.5k for additional equipment purchase and install of all. Does anyone have any other thoughts or suggestions? I have a EI ubg 16 installed but have been very skeptical of my old gauges, so my driver has been reliable engine monitoring and while at it, reliable simple communications. Sorry to hijack but thought maybe similar situation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gear limit switch locations

    I looked through the list and could find a double pole single through 50 amp 12volt coil, or am I missing it. I thought the closest was the 6041h53...but it’s a single pole double through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I found some used exact replacements at Texas air salvage for $225, is that good/bad? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What relays are available to upgrade to? I located the cutler hammonds online. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gear limit switch locations

    Update: The 5 amp breaker when checked again checked out good. As well as pressure switch, gear switch and main 25 amp breaker. I put the plane on jacks, spent a lot of time checking continuity and touching this/that. And never found anything that just jumped out at me. I stepped away for 15-20 min, went back to it, flipped the gear switch and gear goes up. Cycle it again and then it doesn’t. I go back under press on the indicated limit switch in the pic a couple times and re cycle and gear goes up. I sprayed it with contact cleaner while pressing in and out quit a bit, and I’ve been able to cycle the gear regularly now. It seems there’s a delay of 4-5 seconds but it does cycle. I’m going to order a limit switch and replace, as indicated in the pic, one has been replaced at some point and I think the culprit is the old original. If anyone could advise their thoughts it’s greatly appreciated. (In the pic gear is in the down position). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I found that the 5 amp breaker next to the 50 amp is not showing continuity, it will not pop out or in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve reviewed the schematic last night quite a bit, I’m down to up limit, I’m going to check the continuity of “common” and “Nc” coming from the pressure switch, it’s a newer switch that’s been replaced I can tell. The down limit is an original. As far as the relays, if I were to send a pic of what I was staring at, would you be able to guide me to what to check. I’ve seen some relays in pics on here and these look a little different. The motor/actuater looks newer as well, previous owner said it was rebuilt in CA not long ago. I’m going to redo my pressure switch, I was by myself the speed was actually around 150, I’m going to try and get it to that 80/90 mark and see if it’s working there.

    I’m showing continuity at the retract switch and the pressure switch at 100mph. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Gear limit switch locations

    I had to you tube last night how to check ohms on a switch, I’m not 100% sure how though. On the retract switch, Do I remove the wires connected to the switch? And use ohms? can it be done with leads connected? Is this all done with master off? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    After thinking about it, I came to the realization that it’s not breaker or throw switch, because it comes down fine...I was told to check pressure switch by jumping two wires and trying it...if it works it’s the pressure switch, if it doesn’t, it’s motor or limiting switch.
