    ADS-B out / TailBeacon installed

    Mike, thanks for the explanation of the transponder to ADS-B unit communication. I don't have the background to know how that happens but it works just fine. Larry

    Here are the pictures. And this is the item from Aircraft Spruce. Couldn't get the government rebate but company gave me the $100 rebate so cost 1299 in the end. UAVIONIX BUNDLE ECHOUAT WITH SKYFYX-EXT ALL-IN-ONE RECEIVER

    No I did not. The white unit which is a waas antenna and waas receiver is in the picture. The unit worked right out of the carton and only needed power and a wire between the two components. THe Garmin transponder sends the altitude to the unit through either (blue tooth or wifi) and I don't know which. I will try to upload pictures of the installation. Nothing is behind the panel, only a 12 volt wire for power to the units that are behind the passenger compartment in the luggage area. Larry

    Snow birding in Kingman Az?

    I am in Cottonwood, and flew my CTSW to Kingman two weeks ago with some friends for brunch. You will like the restaurant there. Sounds like you don't have your CT in Kingman. Larry

    Blue LED

    Also if you look back to my 2013 posting there are more comments and pictures posted there. Larry

    Blue LED

    No there is no 3-d printing project needed. Those are not blue LEDs they are the colorless ones in that give away light at Harbor Frieght. If you don't get one for free I think they are $3.99 each or so. Remove the board and put velcro on the back of the board and on the wing and stick the thing behind the fuel tube. Of course there is a little matter of powering them which takes 3 triple A batteries. Battery boxes are available on line for three tripl A batteries and on the box is a switch. There is asmall modification on the circut board array to disable the single light and only light up the array. Larry

    Blue LED

    Refer to my post of June 2013 for an alternate approach. The original light in the sight tube is almost totally worthless, There is a simple solution and I posted pictures of it and described. Look up fuel site tubes and scroll down to my post. I reattached one of the pictures here. Larry Flying Bozo

    Fuel Sight Tubes

    Simple push button LED array from Harbor Freight flashlight velcro behind sight tube. You won't have to change the sight tubes as often. Larry

    What is that gunk in my carburetor bowl?

    Having had my share of questionable stuff in the carb bowls i have come to the conclusion that it has to have come from somewhere between the outlet of the fuel pump and the carb. Anything happening before the fuel pump cant get through the fuel pump filter but after the fuel pump there is no more filtering that goes on. Check the fuel hose on the outlet of the fuel pump. I can't explain what the stuff is that was in your float bowls but must have come from the plumbing downstream from the fuel pump. I am not an expert on the system like some of the mechanics on the forum but that is my take on the issue, for what its worth. Larry
  13. A poor mechanic blames his tools. That said, every plane that I have been associated with has it's own characteristics and all were always bad mouthed in some form or another by opinionated people who were not skilled enough to know while at the same time were praised by others. So it goes!!
  14. One year ago you wrote:

    "My CTSW has some areas under the wings where they are not smooth, and look slightly wavy or bulged.  I have tested, and all these areas are just as hard and solid as the surrounding areas.  I'm assuming they are simply normal imperfections for hand finished composites, and that fuel damage would be softer and/or discolored.  Is that correct?"

    Can you give me an update on the present condition of your wings now a year later? I happen to have a similar problem and am wondering how yours is doing.

    Looks like if your plane was built before June of 2016 it does not apply. Larry
