Just want to say hello, joined Beechtalk a bit ago, and found this site to be quite useful.
Lots of information about owning, maintaining and improving an A36, which is what my partner and I have. All kinds of interesting stories here, I've enjoyed everything I've read so far. No local 'experts' here at our little airport, but have found this site frequently has a discussion on whatever questions we have. So again, thanks for all the information.

And by the way there is a pretty decent restaurant on the field, LYnn's Que it's called, at Lansing Il, KIGQ. No connection to it, other than eating there...

glad to be a pilot,
Pat

Hello,
Well, at the moment it's gutted like a fish, so I'm embarrassed to post. Plane had decrepit plastic tip tanks, leaky struts, and an old flitecraft turbo system. We knew all this at the start, but didn't anticipate the unbelievable case of 'while we're here' leading to the project from hell. So far, new IO 550, lots of tweaks to the turbo system, rebuild of the landing gear system, and now sorting the wiring. Amazing what can accumulate behind the panel...
But someday, maybe in a few CSOB writeups the story will come out. And I'm told these things can fly, like to Oshkosh, next year!

Visuals definitely work for me too, so hare are a few of 'before' to get started.
All in all, fairly piggy, and some dilbert work by the previous crew...
Old engine, and messy gear bays.

More visual titilation; and no, that's not a bad word...

Landing Gear Bays;
1st the grungy before, next all cleaned and painted.
Things are getting better.

So far the struts are rebuilt, with new lower bushings in the housings, all those o-rings, the fill valve, grease fittings and linkage rod rod ends. Gear door bushings, bolts and cushions New stainless brake lines, flex hoses, yada yada. Boy, those rod boots are a pain!
But, not really liking the wiring, wonder if there is a better way to route and protect it, somehow get everything on the pivot side of the rib, away from the wheel bay.

Hello John,

I'm not sure, remembering last month is hard, a few years ago is impossible...
But lets not let that stand in our way! Where are you located?

So while the plane was up on jacks we decided to put in an AOA system. Came across the King variant, and found it very easy to interpret. Very complete kit, and nicely made we thought. Installing this thing looked simple so...

Given the pitot probe on the left side, we put the aoa probe on the right. Balance?
Directions said keep probe away from gear doors and all obstructions, and remain forward of 90% MAC. So the aileron linkage inspection plate was where we chose to fit the probe mount, and that seems to work well. Plenty of clearance from all the aileron mechanism, with easy access for running the plumbing back to the cabin. The aoa brain box ended up on the right sidewall, and the indicator will live atop the glareshield, left of center, and forward. We like i, what do you think?
