    Kx-170 to GMA 345

    Thanks mark, that’s what I thought, and that’s how I wired. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CGR-30 (or MVP-50, I guess) install time

    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

    Kx-170 to GMA 345

    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
  4. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I believe that’s what I’m going to do, move #4 top to #2 top. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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’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

    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
  14. 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
