  1. @yvesg Just curious but was that portion of the tube replaced or was a tube placed over it and subsequently welded? That hole looks to be really close to the joint Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Supposedly this aircraft has a deposit on it pending annual. I highly suspect that that the annual will have MANY squawks. According to the ad it had a 100 hr inspection in the last half of 2018.
  3. I mean it does have all the 201 speed mods...lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It’s listed at 30k Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. @Shadrach, Thanks for the pictures. Figured it'd be like that but you never know without asking. This looks more like something for the grim reaper. Calling @Alan Fox
  6. I was perusing the for sale ads and came across one of the too good to be true ads and wondered if anyone may be in the area of this J model to possibly give it a once over, Only if it's not out of the way, if I am able to get the seller to return my calls. It appears to be located at Potomac Airfield in Ft Washington, MD. Evidently it is part of an estate that is being liquidated. The tail number is N201CA and SN 24-0438.
  7. So @wcb already has the dual g5 and cannot replace the TC with another. That is correct as @gsxrpilot has stated. @boydb may still have that option Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. In the turn coordinator position it is a backup to your primary AI. Paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. As per the Garmin stc you can replace the TC with the G5. Take a look at the panel layout on page 42 of the below link. If a dual G5 setup is used then you replace the TC and the DG/HSI. http://static.garmin.com/pumac/190-01112-10_18.pdf Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I am by no means an expert but I’d say it depends on what your future panel plans may be. If you wanted to do it piece by piece then@gsxrpilot is your authority. For just a new ai you could do a g5, mid continent lifesaver, on up to an aspen. Our resident experts should be awake and mozy on in here shortly Paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Do you have an autopilot that derives data from the TC? If not, this may be a good time to upgrade to one of the myriad of electric AI available via AC 91-75. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Future a&p then!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Did you ever put your volt meter on the battery itself? Also, just because the alternator is relatively new, that doesn’t mean it can’t be bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m sure this has been covered but I must be searching the wrong things since I’m coming up empty handed. My question is in regards to rust and acceptable means of mitigation in the spread of it. If someone were to find rust on their cage(acceptable amounts. Not talking scrap the plane) what are the acceptable means to deal with it? After scuffing with say some Emory cloth, scotch brite pad, etc to get rid of the offending oxidation are products like ospho/por-15 ok to use? Of course after that the primer would be touched up and a product like corrosion x used as a preventative measure. Paul Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
