Re: Magneto 500hr check/overhaul

Mine had done 527hrs and appeared to be all ok, but my inspector suggested I get them overhauled.
One had a cracked case and had to be replaced, so I am glad they where done.

Not factually correct..
Existing 25kHz radios can be left installed provided that they are only used for exempted frequencies, such as the emergency frequency.

Trig TY91 Radio BNIB

I bought this on 22/02/17 from Bournemouth Avionics for £1188, and have decided not to fit it in my Champ.

I have not claimed for the EASA grant.

Anyone interested?

Re: Taper Reamer Request - .2474 to .3781

Out of interest, does anyone know how to convert taper ratios :?

The taper pin I need the reamer for is 0.516" per foot taper, and the reamers shown on Tracy Tools is 1:48. I don't think these are the same, but not sure!
