  1. Everything was assisted owner install, so I did really good on budget. And I learned a lot about the plane. Other than the hardware costs, the cgr 30c required the most odds and ends. But did not add up to much. Only reason It came to owner assisted was where I had the plane lined up to have it all installed, once the mechanic took a look at it, he said he wasn’t doing the panel. Which killed the deal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Prop was recently replaced, should have replaced throttle but that one is easy compared to mixture. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I wanted to update my thread, here is the latest in my several month long project. here’s before/after pics. If your interested in during pics, which are not for the faint of heart, I can provide as well. Project consisted of installation of: EI cgr 30 c Garmin GMA 345 audio panel Garmin GTR 225 radio EI usb hub McFarland mix control Hendricks avionics panel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks mark, that’s what I thought, and that’s how I wired. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I installed a CGR30c with mechanics sign off, new Hendricks avionics panel, new circuit breakers and mixture control. Took roughly 20 hrs for cgr 30c. Main thing was needing a fitting or 2 that wasn’t the anticipated size on existing equipment. Pic is on first test flight, still had a few things left to do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Does anyone have experience wiring a kx170 to a GMA 340 or 345? There are no “Lo” or “return” pins on the kx170. Are just the “hi” pins used making a single wire connection? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. How does one go about removing these, there’s a nut on the back side, is the front side a chrome nut as well or a flange? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Asaxet, what are you installing? I’m installing a cgr 30c this weekend.
  9. Man I know, I was going to replace with fine wires 10hrs ago and my cheapness went massive. Is there anything wrong with running fines in just #4 top and bottom? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I swapped #4s to #2s, I did clean what appeared to be a little deposit on top #4 before the swap. Mag checked out fine. I’m ordering fine wire tempest for all 8 next time I need something from spruce. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I believe that’s what I’m going to do, move #4 top to #2 top. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. After the first time I had this happen, I’m leaning to the point of near stumble in ground ops. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks GSXRpilot, that’s exactly what I’ve been reading but I did want to double check. I’m going to swap plug on top #4, and see what I have from there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Here’s another one, I got my 67’ F from my first annual, we did not change plugs, but we did replace a sheared through bolt on #3-#2!! First flight, I noticed a slight roughness @ mag check, thought it was a fouled plug, cleared it, mag checked good. Then 2 flights later I started to notice #4 egt running quite a bit higher on the ground at runup and then had a failed mag check and #4 dropping egt on right mag. I changed plugs and got new tempest massives. 10 hours later I’ve got the same scenario...it’s high egt on #4 and just a tick high on #3, then on right mag check #4 drops egt below all the others and pretty rough. Is this a plug again, a lead wire in the harness going bad or something worse? I did clean #4 injector and line today BTW. Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. 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
