Electronics International instrument install problem

Recommended Posts

Trying to install new EI instruments and at the goal line ran into a fit issue. Top instrument won’t fit because of the cross member shown. Any ideas?

The only EGT I could find that will fit in the corner location is the EI UBG-16. The display separates from the main body so you could fit it in tight spaces. It works very well.

It looks you are putting three 2 inch instruments over there, will any fit in the top hole?

The problem is the top instrument hits the cross member. Not sure if it’s structural or not. Can I put a notch in it or modify to fit maybe?

That cross member supports everything in the panel. I wouldn't notch it.

Joe - may not be the answer you want to hear. That bar supports the top of the avionics stack and I wouldn’t notch it.

You look like you have also gone with smaller gauges below the new gauge. Have you considered having the right panel recut and make the holes smaller and move everything down?

Well, I have a CNC machine. Looks like I will be cutting a new panel and lower

the instruments.

Post pictures of the new panel. At least gives you more instruments options

That's the new plan. Nothing is ever easy Mom always said.
