    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

    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.

    Negative fix on the breaker terminal corrosion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’m going to give it a good cleaning and try it out this afternoon. Fingers crossed that what it is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I did the tubing on the pitot trick the other day, just to check if there was leakage in the system somewhere, everything appeared to hold pressure. I think I found the culprit, 25 amp gear breaker is blue colored from corrosion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think I’ve got pressure sensor instead of squat sensor...I think. Its been acting up, like not retracting on the first throw of the retract switch but would on the second...then it would take 3-4 tries, last time I flew it wouldn’t at all. I havent pulled and reset breaker yet, but it wasn’t popped. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 67’ F: Where are the up/down limit switches located and what is the best place to access for inspection/cleaning. I’m chasing gear not retracting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ei ubg 16

    I bought a used ubg 16 and I need to purchase cht probes. What I’ve found is that they need to be k type, 3/8” 24. Does anyone have a suggestion to what kind. I’m trying to avoid spending $350 on cht probes, does a universal work? I saw there might be a need to piggy back the #3 to keep it legal as well. I’ve been searching for probes for a while but have come up with limited options. Thanks in advance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
