    The Ignition Module Gremlins Visited Today!

    Possibly a $2000 dollar tip ! Thanks again Roger! 😁
  2. Almost a year ago on a cold start the engine would turn over but no start. The forum recommended I ice the modules and try it again. I did and it started immediately. Since then I’ve enjoyed over 100 problem free hours. I started thinking it was just a fluke. Today on a cold start she did the same thing. I grabbed a bagie filled it with some taxi way snow and like magic she starts. How can she fire so many times without fail since last year? If the frequency is so rare should I ignore it for awhile and see what happens? If I do buy new modules are the rebuilt ones an ok way to go? Thanks all!

    Warm up question?

    Good idea and great tip! Thanks! Today we’re finally getting into the 30’s so the worse is over thank god!

    Warm up question?

    Thanks for the response guys! I’ve got so much tape on there I’m kinda concerned it will get hot away from a field. I do notice that a little higher rpm’s seem to cool her more. I always sit away from the wind while waiting. I’m thinking seriously about blocking the grill totally until warm shutting her down pulling the blockage and proceeding.

    Warm up question?

    I’m in Montana and it’s damn cold. Today with temps in the low teens all I could get for temps at run up was 105 degrees. 122 degrees was a long way away. I’ve got most my cooler aluminum taped with a tiny bit still exposed. Question? Should I be concerned taking off with temps in the 105 area? Thanks everyone!

    Sorry for the delay Ed! Sounds like you’ve done pretty good on maintenance. I’ve had little things like wires coming loose causing engine alerts, dirt in the idle jet, front gear bushing replacement. These machines are impressive!

    This is a great lead! Can I get the new checker sport decals?

    I’ve got 805 now. What items have you had to repair so far with the exception of normal maintenance things?

    Sticky brakes on 2007 CTSW?

    Yes, I think the pads are loaded with ice. One would think after 10 or 15 brake pulls they’d clear. These didn’t. Ive found in extreme cold or hot conditions things act up!

    Sticky brakes on 2007 CTSW?

    Pads are fine. Icy and cold here 3 degrees. It’s been freezing rain snow blizzards etc. I wonder if the brakes are loaded with ice etc?

    Sticky brakes on 2007 CTSW?

    I’m checking things out and will report back. The runway has been snowed in and I was doing a bunch of T.O and landings the day before in two inches of snow. It would grab to my left and squeal on the right side. Thanks guys!
  14. Today I went out to fly my CTSW and noticed my left brake grabbing and jerking the plane to the left. We’ve had lots of snow and freezing taxi ways. Today my hanger was probably 25 degrees. Anyway while taxing while test my brakes the right one would squeal with the plane jerking left. I tested this over and over and the same thing happened jerking to the left. Any solutions or insights are as usual appreciated!
