Yep, mine has done it several times after fuel line work (repair fuel selector, change gascolator or remove bowl to clean, install fuel flow transducer) and always in climb. Mine was usually in the first hour or so.

I have the Reiff turbo installed on my engine and the sump pads heat up instantly... My advice would be to remove the cowl, plug in the heater, and quickly touch the heating elements.. If it's fried, I'm sure Reiff will replace it..

What makes you think it's not working? I have that system and on my initial uses, I swore it wasn't working. I would leave it plugged in for 12-14 hours and would barely feel any heat. After talking to others with engine heaters (not Reiff), they poi

Cheaper if you just buy the fuel resistant o rings from Spruce for a couple of dollars. That should be all you need. If you need more, then order the kit from McFarlane.

There is a relay behind the instrument panel which energizes when the PTT switch is pressed. I'm assuming it applies the ground to key the transmitter. It is a 1964 172E and probably original equipment. The relay is an ITT 4-BR which checks good a

I went with a new sky tec starter, new starter relay and had to buy a new battery too. Wow was it a expensive week. I have never seen such a pretty starter, looks like it should be on a show plane. I wonder how much that polish cost me?

I own the hangar and the land it sits on. Not a fair comparison, however, if I figured utilities and the portion of property tax, I'd say $150 a month. Luckily I have work that offsets the cost. I can get three airplanes in it if necessary though.
