  1. 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

    Asaxet, what are you installing? I’m installing a cgr 30c this weekend.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. I believe that’s what I’m going to do, move #4 top to #2 top. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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

    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
  11. 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
