  1. 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.
  2. Just sent my 330 out for ES upgrade. Tech says 7-10 days and no backlog. Cheaper than uavionix and 1090 compliant.
  3. 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.
  4. Has anyone had experience priming with the short drains and fuel pump. (Not using bypass valve)? wondering if the standpipe is really necessary operationally?
  5. Wow! Just read UK pilots saga. (Above link) Really happy to have my Century 41
  6. Ditto on the diode. If the pitch of the noise increases with engine speed diodes are a high probability.
  7. Just spoke with Continental tech rep. His understanding is there was a single failure causing a power loss. My K has had the diverter valve for 40 years and always works great. SB Applies to ALL tsio360’s from the GB on up as well as the 550’s.
  8. Minimum idle RPM for GB MB and LB is 700 per Continental.
  9. Thanks for the input. Reading the wiring diagram does seem to point to the up limit. Will search that post. phil Exercised the up limit switch and started working. Thanks again for the input. Phil

  11. Anyone have thoughts on this scenario? Gear handle up and nothing happens. Push override and nothing happens, not even the normal horn and annunciations. After about three or four minutes it retracts. Extension is always normal. ‘79 M20K
  12. I have a GB. Merlyn and intercooler and Gamis. Runs great, cylinder temps around 360 in climb. Super smooth, just requires a light touch on the throttle.
