Now I have the answer: The original dipstick for my 172/O-300-A is part number 539779 and that is what is in it and has no slot for the "D" ring in either the dipstick or the dipstick holder. That part number has been superceeded by part

I flew it this morning early.Super smooth and flew over a decent sized lake low=fun. When I landed I cleaned all the bugs off of it after a week of flying. 93įF in this picture. The wheel pants require bug removal just like the wings.

Just to clarify Plane Power did not send me a light bulb to replace the original warning light bulb. They sent me a light assembly, that look more like a LED with two pigtail wires, that replace my old warning light assembly.

The G1000 is a whole different beast. I would agree that a G1000 isnít something you hop into, take off, and figure out as you go...especially coming from 100% steam and needles. But these little EFIS displays are pretty straightforward.

Also a good reason to ACF50 fog every few years - it won't get them all but most of them and you can hit the others with a damp rag of it.
