  1. The simple answer to Procharger is given by the compression ratio which on the 100 HP is 10.8. So if you take atmospheric pressure of 14.6 PSI and multiply by 10.8 the answer is 145 psi. I believe that it will be slightly higher if you are turning over the engine at a higher speed with the starter but if you are just pulling it through slowly by hand then 145 is the max possible. (standard altimeter setting of 29.92). Larry
  2. OK Sling Pilot, BTW it is listed as 14 gallons and not 15.. Suits me just fine and have had it for the last 6 years. I can't do the permanent one in the pickup because I use that truck for other things. Good luck. Important to get the Trick Flow pump from Summit because that puts out enough pressure to kick off the handle. Larry
  3. Yes, you may ask.... you have to buy the tank and hose and pump separately and then put them together. tank is a dura max tank about $125 and ZORO on line is offering a 20% discount on the first order. You will need a nozzle and hose and pump. Total should come to about $300. (12 V pump is a Trick Flow 140 from Summit Racing about $104) You have to put all together.
  4. EB3, That hose is the one that has grounding contained in the hose.
  5. Warmi, I have a good sense of humor and able to overlook the charactarization that this is a contraption. Contraption definition....a machine or device that appears strange or unnecessarily complicated, and often badly made or unsafe. I have been using it for about 5 years. I guess you would have about $300 in the while thing including the pump.
  6. Here is what I use for refueling. 14 Gallons No lifting No ladder, fuel standing on the tail gate Once empty weighs about 15 pounds Automatic shut off like gas station no more spills Larry
  7. BTW everything is included in the package. The only thing you need already is the Garmin GTX327 transponder that talks to the unit by magic (no additional wiring). I thought it was by blue tooth or something like that but another person on this blog explained that it was something else through the power wire to the unit so must be magic. Also my 327 had older software in it but when I asked the radio guy about it he said it would work just fine with the older software and he was correct. Anyway so far it is bullet proof. I have done several airborne reports since the original just to see what was happening and each one of them was absolutely clear of any issues. Good luck, Larry
  8. look at my January 21 post with 3 pictures of the installation. Larry
  9. i CAN'T SAY IF IT WILL WORK WITH THE 696. SO FAR IT WORKS WITH ANYTHING THAT CAN RECEIVE WIFI AND DISPLAY THE TRAFFIC ON THE MAP SCREEN, LIKE I PAD AND I PHONE AND ANDROID PAD AND ANDROID PHONE I FLY DISPLAY EASY INSTALL, POWER AND GROUND AND A CONNECTION TO WAAS ANTENNA. EASY SET UP WITH APP. THE AIRBORNE REPORT WAS CLEAN. NO PANEL SPACE USED UP. LARRY
  10. WHY IS EVERYONE OVERLOOKING THIS? UAVIONIX BUNDLE ECHOUAT WITH SKYFYX-EXT ALL-IN-ONE RECEIVER $1399 FROM AIRCRAFT SPRUCE? IN AND OUT SOLUTION, MINIMUM WIRING AND POSSIBLE $100 BACK FROM MANUFACTURER. NO ADDITIONAL PANEL AREA NEEDED. NEED A GTX327 TRANSPONDER ALREADY INSTALLED IN MOST CTs LARRY
  11. Engine rough when you gave throttle sounds like debris in the float bowl that gets into the jet. Running out of fuel doesn't seem to fit with roughness or restart. Are both the gas cap vents clear? Did you do a flow test at annual time?
  12. The picture is a CTSW. Have a Muffin fan put in by Guttman. It blows in according to the design that he said was proper. Larry
  13. New vent to get the heat out of the mushroom and into the cabin! It is an automotive air conditioner vent. During a longer flight the mushroom gets so hot that the Dynon alarms and I had to turn off the heater to let things cool down. That is a vent near the pilots right shin to let heat out.
  14. 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
