I have noticed a pronounced bouncing oscillation of the gauge as I lean the engine. Is anyone else experiencing the same phenomenon? The second finding is the EHSI 15 degrees or so to the right of track when in NAV mode but gone in GPSS. Otherwise N6CD is a dream…
Bob: My EGT gauge is fairly steady, but does move quickly once I start to lean. (It never bounces.) I do note that some times it takes 15-30 seconds to fully stabilize at a temp.
My Sandel reads 8 degrees higher then the whisky compass. This started out as an intermittent problem and seems to be a full time issue. It doesn’t make any difference if flying with the NAV or GPSS functions on the GPSS, however, as the A/P will make the corrections so the aircraft is headed to the correct point.
The plane is at the JA AIr center in Dupage, IL for the ARNAV Engineview installation and a bunc of warranty worrk, so we’ll se how it is next week.
I appreciate your comments and will update when I go to Lancaster,Pa for service. So far I have 33 hrs on 6CD #37. I would be interested in your thoughts on the Engineview as I too am thinking about adding it. The price I was quoted prior to picking up 6CD was about $4300. As another post has raised, does the installation effect the CHT?
Another discovery is the starburst pattern of cracking around the screws securing the landing light cover. This will need to be replaced.
Since service is in my immediate future I was hoping you would share with me the “bunch of warranty work” you have needed to date.
