Another few Steps Closer to Flying

Rate this Entry
Last Sunday I spent a couple of hours returning the 503 onto the back of the Quantum. It's a nice light engine so was not too much of a hassle to manage on my own. Whilst I was at it I removed the Pylon so as to carry out Service Bulletin 117 on the Pylon Hang Point Bush, which although not too bad, was rotating. I got the Service Bulletin sorted last Monday and now have a perfect Hang Point Bush. I also had no Gas Strut for lifting the Wing, so I ordered one and the accessories from P&M Aviation.
Today after work I spent a couple of hours in the Hanger, re-fitted the Pylon and installed the new Gas Strut, it's all coming together nicely. Just need to get the Prop fitted and have the Pitch Checked. Check that all EGT's and CHT Senders are working correctly, and then run in the Engine from Scratch. Couple of pics below showing the damaged piston.
