  1. Valves don’t know whose name is on the data plate.
  2. Bore scope is called for by TCM at every annual/100 hour inspection. Easy to do and best form of early warning. The final stage prior to coming apart is usually preceded with green coloration starting to show on the exhaust valve.
  3. Do you have the curser buttons that fit on the end of the rotating knobs?
  4. N231JC just popped up on Controller. Very well equipped, but needs some interior work. My experience with the GB is it performs well but requires careful, conservative handling.
  5. Your post was a pleasant reminder that the Continental installation requires a much smaller vocabulary while doing maintenance and repairs. (used to have a super21 so appreciate the difference)
  6. I complied about a year ago after a lengthy conversation with a Continental tech rep. At that time they had confirmed two failures in about a 40 year period. (Hence the discussion). In essence it removes the valve which can stick open and two primer lines and requires a rerouted or replaced line to the fuel distributor. Simplifies the system and removes several possible problems. As an operator you will not do anything different. A benefit is smoother starts since all six cylinders are getting equal distribution directly. A win win in my opinion.
  7. JPI uses the hole for the original since it is now primary. They have a sensor for the secondary hole used only with the 830 but resistance values are not compatible with the factory gauge.
  8. Know this question is a shot in the dark but.....I’m trying to find an oil temp sensor with the following characteristics that will fit a 1/8” NPT hole. Installed a JPI 900 which required the original 5/8” hole by the oil cooler on the TSIO-360 and would like to maintain the original gauge for redundancy and the alternate hole is the smaller size.
  9. The JPI 900 &930 are primary certified as is the EI 2-1/4” combination digital-analog. Both companies will set custom limits when provided with the applicable STC.
  10. I have a K and a 900 ready to install. The simplest method I found was remove the ADF indicator and move the CDI left into the Now empty space. Mine has an empty slot at the left end of the row of rocker switches that the primer switch will fit in. The go-around button can go almost anywhere due to small footprint. This setup allows the autopilot annunciator to remain in place and requires virtually no additional cuts in the panel.
  11. At higher power settings it is normal to regulate oil temp by operating cowl flaps in the mid/half open position. This is referenced in the POH. When I bought my GB I made the mistake of adjusting the cowl flaps to a fully closed condition. Oil temp immediately increased.
  12. Just sent my 330 out for ES upgrade. Tech says 7-10 days and no backlog. Cheaper than uavionix and 1090 compliant.
  13. It is in the limitations section so it is required equipment. (Sec. 2-5) Electronics International has a tit/cdt gauge for around $600. Make sure they check the probe and wiring as that is the source of the majority of these issues.
