Hartzell AD Followup by Doug Vetter
This is a follow-up to a message I sent to the group recently about the Hartzell propeller AD. I flew out to the prop shop today and had them inspect my hub using the eddy current method. Interesting technology and quite accurate for finding the smallest of cracks on or very near the surface. ...

Airmap 2000C ??? by Tri-Pacer
I just got my new Lowrance Airmap 2000C and am playing with it before I fly with it. It is different enough from my current GPS (King Airmap IIIC) that I have a bit of a learning curve to get comfortable with the new unit. After spending over 30 minutes with Lowrance on hold, then getting...

Radio buzz by Robert M. Gary
I have an MX170 radio that I use to pick up ATIS, etc. Recently it will occassionally have a buzz in it that is so loud you cannot hear the transmission. It will buzz on all freq, then later in the flight it will go away. This unit is no longer supported so I'm wondering if there is any chance this...

Power Supply in 98 C182S by [email protected]
Dan wrote: Our club is in the final stages of purchasing a 1998 Cessna 182S. Much to my dismay, I noticed the lack of a 12-volt cigarette lighter (or it's 24-volt equivalent) anywhere to be found. (am I just not looking in the right place?) What are the options here? How difficult...

486 vs GDL69a by TF
Decision time. Do I go for a panel mounted GDL69a in my 77 Mooney (MX20) for a big price tag. Or do I do the cheap and cheerful 486 portable route ? Seems on a cost basis that the 486 is the choice . Why wouldn't you ? I like the integrated approach for the neatness factor. No wires...

C172N Eats Landing lights for breakfast by [email protected]
My friend owns a 77 172N. Eats Landing lights. A real pain to change with the cowling. I recently read in an old copy of Aviation Consumer Buyers guide that some of the N models are known to do this and that there's a Landing Light Improvement Kit from Cessna. I could not find one online Does...

Who pays redux by Viperdoc[_4_]
After a few weeks, I called my mechanic, since I had not received a bill. (See previous threads for background): Immediately after the last annual, the plane threw an alternator belt. We went through three belts, and the last one has been in for six hours and worked fine. During this time we...

Paint shops in Atlanta area ? by Mike
Due to some peeling clear coar, slightly thinning base coat in a couple of places, and some recent minor hail damage (with payment from insurance) it looks like we're due for a paint job on our Archer. Can anyone suggest any good shops (or ones to stay away from) in the Atlanta area? All...

Lowrance 2000C ??? by Tri-Pacer
I just looked at one of these jewels yesterday and I am impressed. Is anyone using one? How do you like it. I'd really like to hear pro's and cons. I'm presently using a King Skymap IIIC and could probably sell if for what a Lowrance 2000C would cost. Thanks

Mooney M20C Questions by Greg Esres[_2_]
On the hydraulic flaps, does the position of the silver pump handle have any bearing on whether or not the hydraulic pressure leaks out of the flap, once they are extended? (The POH doesn't say that it does.) There is some mechanism underneath the instrument panel that has some adjustment for the...

Hello everyone. I was looking under the cowling of the 152 the other day, and I noticed that the ground wire from the left magneto was broken. The end of it looked like it was frayed and burned. However, when I did a mag check I got the normal RPM drop on each magneto. I also was able to...
