  1. I'm looking at the same decision tree...I dug into my logbooks and I discovered that the mags where overhauled at 1392 hrs total airframe time then IRAN'ed twice since then. Based on that, I'm going with new ones and while I'm at it, I'm probably going to install a SureFly "eMag" and new wiring harnesses Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  2. Hi Jim, Welcome to MS! From what I understand, Jose has "left the building" due to pushback from radical ideas such as the one of which you just made mention.
  3. does this limitation of no spark advance for turbos override any other benefits one might derive from installing one on a Bravo engine?

  5. Here's where I've had success with purchasing overhauled cylinders:
  6. I'll try to remember to take photos the next time I'm at the hangar.. Tomorrow. One battery minder, yes. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Yep, that's fuel. I think that panel is the speed brake access panel. The fuel is not coming from there,'s seeping back from another location in the wall of one of the fuel bays.... I'm not a mechanic but I play one on the internet...
  8. I found this Service Letter from TCM It does not look like there is a provision from the OEM for "on condition"....However: Depending on your engine model and serial number, you may qualify for an extension of 200 hours (newer serial numbers) and another 200 hours (flown an average of 40 + hours per month) as is noted in the chart in the service letter: "1. If an engine consistently accumulates 40 or more hours per month since being placed in service, add 200 hours to recommended TBO. 2. Engines with Serial Number 1006000 or higher, add 200 hours to TBO as noted in table above" Also, it references the use of the Hobbs meter as the "official" hours in use. How many hours does your engine have?
  9. @Airways, just out of curiosity, where are you going with this?
  10. I've been in touch with the BK rep regarding the AeroCruz230 to Aspen 1000 pro integration: On June 8th, this was the exchange: My email: "Hi Peter, I am still interested in the AeroCruz 230 for my 95 Bravo. Any new updates on the integration with the Aspen 1000 Pro PFD?" Peter's response: "Good Morning, Apologies for the delay in responding. I unfortunately do not have good news. I was updated last week on all of the current certification, upgrades, and timelines for all AeroCruze 230 activities. It looks like the AeroCruze 230/Aspen interface will not be finalized before the first quarter of 2021. There are number of reasons for this time slip. The primary one is that we have experienced a major reduction in staffing within the company. As a result, we had to prioritize the items that we are currently working on and the interface between the KFC 230 and Aspen had to be pushed back to a later date. We will still work on obtaining the interface and if our situation improves (our financials start to improve), we may be able to see the interface sooner. Let’s plan on keeping in touch with one another. Always feel free to contact me at any time." UGH....
  11. One more thing: You have to let the Aspen system fully boot up, waiting for the AHRS fail light to go out BEFORE doing the AP self test. Otherwise the AP will not receive attitude info from the EA100 and your test will fail.
  12. Someone obviously forgot to fill the left hand Twin Magnetic Funk-Reducing Fluid reservoir.
  13. Unfortunately, I had many issues as well...check out this thread: There could be several things going on from improperly shielded or inferior quality CAT5 cable from the 1000 pro to the EA100 to incompatible software versions to My issue turned out to be that the EA100 converter was loaded with software version 1.1 and it requires software version 1.2... find the EA100 and look at the label on it, that should tell you what version you have loaded. Also, have your avionics shop get in touch with Andy Smith at Aspen. He is the technical support guru. PM me for his number.
