Sorry to hear that. I guess you will have to decontaminate your plane if it turns out the tech has the virus Are they keeping your plane inside during this time?

My main wheels have too many flat spots. Mainly from my training in the same plane about 5-6 years ago. I feel vibration when I taxi, and it really bugs me. The logs show the tires are about 13-14 years old. They hold air fine. I have the Goodyear Fl

OK, weird. I had the same thing about a month ago. Aborted a takeoff because the engine note changed while lifting off. Had plenty of runway so landed and went back to the hanger. Did a runup and seemed to be lacking a little power, MAG drop was good

Maybe you can consider an Avidyne IFD440. It is orders of magnitude easier to use. It fits in the same tray as a GNS430W. The GTN650 is also much easier. User interfaces have come a long way since the 430 was introduced. The 430 is very frustrati

New spring fitted, old one has fretting on the coils which changes the cross section of the spring material, making it weaker. Also the old spring had been stretched by someone in a misguided attempt to increase the spring pressure. A runup seemed to

If you have a stuck valve the engine tends to run rough/vibrate. You could also do a differential compression test.

Quote:If your plane is like mine with the dual mags then it is a Bendix Mag and not a Slick mag. So I don't think this pertains to us? I forgot to mention in my last post that it should not apply to your "Bendix" dual mag. I have an O320-D2
