Looking for any advise on cure for vibration in SR22 #123 with about 30 hours.
My service center in Houston had the prop balanced and the prop man stated it did not need any adjustment and only charged $150. for his trouble since he did not have to do any further work.
Next they found landing light heat shield touching the engine mount and trimed—still no improvement.
They checked the springs on the exhaust muffler support and think they still have enough play or spring if you will—still no improvement.
The vibration is more than just an annoyance, the seat and floor feel like you are sitting in a vibrating chair, you can watch the wing tips vibrate. The problem is most noticeable during cruise and not so much during climb or a least this is when I have noticed it.
Other than a few other problems like the auto pilot has a brain fart and decides to pitch up and also seems to flutter left and right during cruise. (any ideas on the auto pilot?) The heater cable broke, the wife has cold feet… but no big deal. A few other minor problems not worth talking about.
The plane is a dream to fly, after about 1,000 hours in a Tiger, this thing feels like a rocket. Love the Garmins and look forward to the Avidine install soon. Skywatch is worth every dime, it may have saved my rear as a guy cut me off in the pattern from above and I was able to see him on the screen and make adjustments and let him know it would be nice if he used or listened to his radio. My wife also feels an additional level of comfort so I know it is worth it.
Thanks in advance with any help.
