    Splitting OAT wire-multiple instruments

    Anyone aware if an already installed OAT gauge going to a JPI can be split off to provide OAT information to an AV-30 and an Aspen or would this setup require 3 OAT probes?

    Magneto Filter needed?

    Tomorrow my mechanic and I start replacing my engine with an overhauled unit. This is a new mechanic I've never worked with before. The new engine has a Surefly on the left side. My current Piper Comanche 1959-250 has the original magneto filter on the firewall AND a filter on the left mag. (see...

    Engine vibration

    That's a different prop than I have. The hartzell page shows what I thought that prop was only for the 260's and not 250? Hartzell doesn't show an applicable prop for 250 Comanches...

    Engine vibration

    No- (edited because I thought he had the McCauley prop. He has the Hartzell top prop)

    Engine vibration

    I have the same O-540 and McCauley 3blade set up in my Comanche. Some days she likes 23/23 to be smooth, some days she likes 24/23 to be smooth. The shimmy and shake is a known issue with the McCauley 3 blade on Comanches. Some have found relief by changing the Lord motor mounts and getting a...

    Surefly Ignition Harness question

    Overhauling an O-540-A1A5 for my Comanche and installing a Surefly in the left position and Bendix in the right. Have seen multiple recommendations to run the Surefly on the bottom plugs and the Bendix on the top plugs. Before I order my new custom harness, can someone shed some light on why...

    Show multiple plane flight tracks at same time?

    I saw A LOT of similarities between that one and what I probably would have experienced had I not slowed down and diverted. This part stood out: “According to recorded radar data, the flight path of N1549X crossed the flight path of DAL931at 1437:51 at 1,800 feet, which was 39 seconds after...

    Show multiple plane flight tracks at same time?

    Don't planes to the right have right of way? I was to his right, he was crossing my path, therefore I had right of way as I understand it. Once he did cross and I realized how close he was (less than 500' according to flight tracks) I chopped power and diverted because I wasn't willing to...
