  1. Good News, the right angle connectors off the old seatbelt worked perfectly. The mechanic pulled off the plastic housing and put it around the old connectors - voila. It's a match. I've also cooked up a tag for the cotter key to warn folks to disconnect the airbag wire before removing the seats.
  2. On a private thread late yesterday, a kind soul offered to mail me their OEM bag connector. Apparently when the OEM bags time-out, they have to be replaced, leaving this husk behind. Yesterday I contacted AmSafe tech support. The design between the SOARS STC bags and the built in OEM belts are electrically different. The built in bags have a sensor to ensure the belt is buckled; the SOARS bags have no belt buckled sensor, just a G sensor, so the SOARS bags can trigger weather the belt is buckled or not. At any rate, AmSafe had half a dozen reasons why the parts are not interchangeable, but di
  3. Nick - thanks for the lead on the alternate part - the one side does look like it might fit. For the folks on this thread: Doeman clock spring PN 525-101. Other Beechtalk folks recommended checking with Textron; Amsafe is a factory option on late 182 & 206 aircraft and they stock a fair number of bits for these systems.
  4. @carusoam I sent a message to Paul Maxwell, I'll let you know what he says, @tmo, I have not found any alternate part number to cross reference. @Mark89114, the auto guys need to know the make, model and year of the auto; but I have not been able to figure out what autos use this connector.
  5. 2 years ago I installed airbags as a little feel good insurance. We went with AmSafe "State of the Art Restraint System" (SOARS), Part Number K7336. Unfortunately, if someone pulls out a seat without first disconnecting the electrical cable between the sensor and the seat, the cable connector breaks at the squib. AmSafe sells a replacement cable, part number is 513047-405-18 but it is a shocking $531.89 with 6 week lead time. The connector itself is automotive, manufactured by Delphi TTI (now Aptiv) in a connector family type ABX-3 with part number 47304601. The connector retails for $3.97 but

  7. Wow, what a topic – love the posts! After reading the replies on the updrafts, I felt like I need to ‘splain a little more. On a normal day when I’m not full gross and there isn’t a nasty downdraft we can comfortably climb to FL140 with plenty of climb rate remaining to continue beyond. How far beyond? I don’t know since I don’t carry oxygen. But, hot, heavy and unfavorable winds left us looking for alternatives that day. I should mention even with the heat, the flight home was fully uneventful. Normal climb up and over the same pass. Of course, that's not really very interesting to re
  8. This thread compelled me to join MooneySpace and share my thoughts. Not to mention, since Allen called out my N# (N202PC), it seemed appropriate to jump into the fray and share my opinion. For me, I went Normally Aspirated purely for economics. My research confirmed a general truism of turbos: you’ll need a top end rebuild at about 1000 hours and it will typically cost more. Beyond burning more fuel, you’ll likely have to lug Oxygen along on your trip to really enjoy all the high flying turbo benefits, lowering your useful load and cabin space. And refilling the bottle costs money too. I
