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..

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?

Jump to new posts replace 6.00-6 nose tire with 7.00-6? by BLG2879 @ 11/18/19 11:10 PM

Does anyone know if a 7.00-6 tire would fit on nose fork currently with 6.00-6? Looks like maybe at least couple inches to spare height-wise, not sure of width of 7.00. Would the 7.00-6 fit onto the 6.00-6"s wheel? Thanks.

Cool adventure up our way. Our daughter took her private pilot Checkride at Shannon Airport. On the hypothetical night landing, wouldn’t you be able to taxi for 3 minutes and then round up? It’s all flight time until you stop moving.

There are valleys in the mountains I often fly over that have a somewhat flat bottom. At first thought (which is all you’d get in that situation) is to turn down the nearest valley at reduced power and attempt a forced landing along the valley botto
