  1. I traded the CTSW today for a Grumman Tiger. It is with mixed emotions that I watched the airplane fly away. The new owner is a super guy and will make a great member of this fine organization. I wish to express my sincere appreciation to all who have contributed to this forum with such valuable input, which I constantly relied upon. Best wishes to everyone at CTFler. Blue Skys Jeff Hesoun
  2. I removed the old paper air filter, along with the three wire ties & gave them the permanent heave-hoe. I was glad to read in another thread that the wire ties are no longer needed (will make servicing the air filter so much easier). I installed the K&N filter and walla, the engine runs perfect at every power setting! That settled months of aggravation, chasing the gremlin. A big thanks to Roger & Corey for their valuable input.
  3. Thanks Roger. Will do. I acquired a Carbmate a few weeks ago and tried it. It was very cold and my helper wasn't the best. I found they were off but I'm sure I can do a better job now that it's warm. I know it he Carbmate isn't everyone's favorite but it was the simplest route at the time. My K & N filter comes in Thursday so I'll give that a try first.
  4. I have a 2006 CTSW. A few months ago, I noticed when reducing power from cruise RPM (over 5200) to between 4300 and 5200, I immediately get a slight roughness in the engine. If I apply carb heat, which bypasses the air filter, it immediately smooths out. Below 4200 RPMs or above 5200 RPMs, it runs fine. I have checked the carb bowls & made sure the cross tube equalization lines are hooked up properly. Nothing changed so I can't figure out why this is occurring. If I apply carb heat in the 4200-5200 RPM range, there is no problem. I checked the air filter, which isn't dirty and appears not to be restricted, however it is the original style paper element. I removed it and ordered a K & N 33-2092 replacement filter. Could it be the paper filter getting old, or any ideas? I thought about changing the mixture on the middle jet, but I haven't changed a thing and it ran fine before. Thanks in advance.
  5. Price lowered to $59,500. Consider trade for Grumman Tiger AA5B or Cessna 182.

  9. Yes. I just switched them out. Email me your address to Aeromut@aol.com.
  10. If you're adding strobes & want a separate switch for them, you need a third wire to power the strobe from that switch and a 4th wire to synchronize the strobes so they flas together.
  11. Excellent. Thanks Corey & Roger. Any experience with the EPTA-LSA or Ultra lights? Big price difference. I hate not being able to compare or buying sight unseen.
  12. I want to replace the weak wingtip nav lights with upgraded types that have strobes on my 2006 CTSW. I've narrowed it down to Thiesen EPTA-LSA for about $395 or Aveo Ultra Daylite (new for 2017-replace Aveo Ultra) for $778 from Spruce. Anyone familiar with either?" EPTA-LSA as bright? Then I need to run 4 wires to the wingtips to allow for the strobes to be added to a separate switch. Does anyone know the best way to do it and do the wings have to be pulled?
  13. I too would like to upgrade from the MR16 landing light, to a PAR36, such as the Whelen Parmethius or Teledyne Aphabeam. Has anyone done it?
  14. I have decided to go LSA and am looking to trade a nice Cessna 182 Skylane for a Flight Desin CT. Can e- mail pics if interested. Call/text Jeff 423-358-6007 or e-mail me at aeromut@aol.com. Located KRVN, East TN.
